OK, maybe there's something to this...


One day later and I have over 20 views on my first post?!? I can't believe that my rambling mess was that interesting. Still, I guess I should try to at least post something of a follow-up.

I'm not sure about you all out there, but lately it seems that my friends are divided into two camps. I have my well-adjusted, somewhat normal griends. And then there is the other group; so messed up emotionally, mentally and spiritually that they seem to be a walking comparison to a nuclear holocaust. I mean, everyone I know has problems (me included), but some folks take "having a personal crisis" to a whole new level. Take for instance this friend of mine. They had recently moved out of North Dakota to their home state, and I keep in touch via email and IM, even phone once in a while. But what they thought was a great move to start over in their life (they had recently become divorced, and wanted a change of scenery) has quickly deteriorated into a total mess. Now they are drinking and having unsafe one-night stands with total strangers. I know, I know....you are saying, "Well Ric...isn't that what being in the lifestyle is partly about...having sex with new people?" Yes, I do have sex with new people...but I at least try to get to know them first, and I never have sex with someone I haven't spoken with before. Just ain't me, McGee.

Now my friend is all upset beause they feel thier life is out of control, and they don't know what to do. I am trying to be a good friend to them: be supportive, offer advice, listen when they want to talk. But anymore I am finding that I want to reach through the screen and grab them by the scruff of the neck, give them a good shake and scream "WHAT IN GOD'S NAME DO YOU THINK YOU ARE DOING???" Am I wrong in feeling this way? Am I a bad friend because I knwo they are slowly destroying their life, and it pains me to watch...even from afar? These are the questions I am wrangling with. It's a definate puzzler.

Maenwhile, back at hoem, things are going good. I took some photos for here, and have finally realized one thing: I am in no way photogenic. I look like some big pasty ogre. It's sobering when you realize that photos of yourself could frighten small children. However, I felt in the best of interests that I should at least be honest with everyone out there and let you see the real me. After all, I am letting some of the real me out in these blogs, so I shouldn't be afraid if my photos are out there. Who knows what may come of it.

Well, that's all for today. Thanks to all of you who took a peek at this and also yesterday's post. We'll see how long I can keep this up.

Until next time...play safe and play hard!
