Thank you for your emails and comments

Published by at 9:44 am under Ivan's Story,Poetry Chaikhana Misc.

Thank you so much for the many kind and concerned notes — as well as the several donations to help me through this difficult period when I haven’t been able to maintain both the Poetry Chaikhana and my day job. I am feeling better — I’d say at 83% of normal. ;-)

This is something I’ve dealt with on and off since childhood. While I continue to search for ways to improve and perhaps, someday, be free of these patterns of ME/fatigue, I have also learned to make room in my life for it. It is a part of my history and has imprinted key moments of my life. I know I may never be able to work a typical career schedule or have the most active social life but, after so many years, that’s not me anyway. I strive to use what I’ve been given, the good and the bad. I try to use my energetic struggles as a doorway to greater self awareness and to awaken my heart. We all have our struggles; this is part of the package of life. The goal isn’t a lack of struggle, it is to find meaning. Then our struggles become the adventure of our souls.

Thank you again, everyone, for the thoughts and prayers and messages. Much love to you!

    Much of your quoted wisdom is like a refreshing rain after drought,like aged wine brought up from earthen cellars,like the gentle,but breif touch of a birds wing and impact of a mysterious breeze…….Would like to introduce a new venue:quotes from great tai chi and kung fu masters:i.e.- an aged photo of Tak HIng Kwan in fulll attire with quotes like:”Marshall Arts are taught for refinement and self-defense,not for revenge or dominating attitude”.A photo of The “Ip Man”with no quotes necessary……..Art
