Life can be good

I have this odd feeling of calm today. Perhaps it is that our little group is growing with some very nice people who show themselves to be warm and caring and blend with the rest of us well. Yesterday I wrote about how it is nice to have friends to call and do things with. This is just scracthing the surface of what is coming to be a tight knit group of friends.
It has been commented that our group is not the usual thing found here on AdultFriendFinder and it makes me wonder why not? Before anything do we not need to know something of those we would like to be intimate with? All to often it seems that some, mostly men, think all they have to do is make one contact and the one on the other end is going to except the offer and fall into bed with them. Duh, how foolish is that? Only animals mate in this manner. Even a one night stand is based on at the very least a few hours of conversation and some mutual attraction, oh yeah and lust.
In the time I have been here I have met some really great people and two are becoming really close friends, ones I know I can count on who except me as I am flaws and all. One other is going to be a mentor as I hope to cultivate his friendship and become a part of his cirle of friends, many of whom are Native American and into the spiritual side of their heritage. This is something that I have embraced for many years but had never had the oppurtunity to make friends in that community. Now through this group I have that door open to me, how strange that this is the path I needed to follow. The spirits that are our guides in this life have a perverse sense of humor to bring me here to find something sought after for so long.
I have yet to understand how all these people came together, how our little group grew. The most amazing thing is how quickly we became friends, caring about everyones well being, being supportive of each other in good times and just being there in the bad times. To see once strangers rally to one of the group in need has given me hope that there are still good people in this world. All to often the worst of human nature is in the news instead of the goodness and compassion we have for others.
I must be feeling good today for I have not felt much like writting of late. For those of you who follow my blog I thank you all for your comments and support. You may not think it means much but to me it is, and I need to thank all of you for being the boost or counsel or the laugh I needed at that given time. You all seem to know just the right thing to say and that is something special too.
For anyone who thinks they are alone it only takes one person to dispell that feeling and if you look about you there are friends just waiting to be a part of your life if you let them. Everyone have a great day, mine is because of all my friends here.

I'm sure Jim that you've heard this saying, but its so very true. "Strangers are just friends you haven't met yet"

Everything you just said JIm is so true. Everyone in the group has been great. Someone once told me, why do you go online and chat so much, it's not like it's real or anything. Well they surely have not met friends like the ones in our group. Or talked to any of them on the phone, or gone to any of our meet and greets. It is all real to me. Every friendship I have made. It's the real thing- real people on the other end of the computer talking back to you. We learn from one another and we help one another. It's all good and you threw us all together Jim. You were either one smart man, or crazy? Hmmm....?? LOL j/k

I was just thinking this weekend how odd it is that I finally have a group of friends.. and that I met them on a sex site! I agree, our group is different. We've all seemed to bond quickly. And I say that like it's a good thing because it is!

It really is an awesome group. Thanks so much for making it possible. You're an awfully big part of what it is.

And congrats / good luck on following the Native American path. Spiritual stuff is just so awesome to work with, from any culture.

I myself have some ties to Native American spirituality, only I'm cursed with not knowing what tribe. I'm fairly certain that my link there is to some ancient tribe of star gazers. I'm not sure they even survived through the ravages of history. It'd be just my luck that they have no living survivors and no recorded history, and all that I have are vague memories of past lives connected to them.

Oh well. **LOL** I have ties to so many other cultures that it hardly makes a difference in the end. I am ecclectic through and through. I've walked too many paths through this planet's history. Maybe it's time I just retire. **LOL** Whatever it is I'm here to learn, I just must not be getting it.

But I wish you the best of luck on your journey. May a light always shine on your path and your feet be true. And thanks for sharing your life and your light with us.
