ray, it is obvious to me that you are a sincere person. I am not always myself but I try to be most of the time. I sincerely envy anyone who has a faith, a philosophy, a theory, a compass that helps them to navigate the infinite paths facing humans each successive moment on this Earth. As you may have already surmized I have an old compass that I am not sure is very reliable so I only turn to it when I am desperately lost. I'd love to borrow yours Ray, but I'm too proud and still think that I can find my way on my own. Guys have a problem with asking directions, they say. Someday, if I am fortunate I'll either discover a new one or some incredibly charismatic person will convince me to try theirs. Even better, I suppose, an angel of mercy will shine His countenace upon me and make me see the one path that renders all compasses useless.

Sorry if I beat that metaphor to death, but it's a paragraph anyway. I'm told that Jesus summed it all up in only two words, "I am." My response to your question was short but an accurate answer of how I feel.

I respectfully suggest that you consider that if you want someone to try something for you that you ask them and not tell them. I confess that I wander over to PBF only rarely so I'm not sure that we will be able to have much of a dialogue. I hope you don't mind that I took a stab at your question. Thanks for your response.
-Toph
