I was stoked to find this thread...not only because it's a wonderful cause but also because the cause is local (for me). Charlotte posted the article from the Santa Cruz Sentinel (a local newspaper in my area) and that brought a smile to my face....but when I went to the site to check out the bracel...

To answer your first question--we may not know yet or may never know. :banghead: To the second, it could be a multitude of reasons like: - to become strong - to learn compassion - to learn a lesson to pass on (as you and Lumineuse have done) - to learn to "let it go" - to learn forgiveness (but let...

Yes suec. I totally agree with you about the student/teacher aspect. Many time things don't happen (or people don't appear) until you're ready for them to. You have to be at a certain point in your life for things to affect you the way I do. Some days you can meet a new person and not think anything...

Oh DITHOT...You have no idea how appropriate this is! The reason, season, lifetime quote is like my mother's mantra! It's becoming mine as well (least where relationships apply). This quote has really helped me figure out why I'm in certain relationships and if I really need to be in that relations...

Very interesting, DITHOT! Who knew it was such a process? In general, Swiss and German chocolates are refined for a longer period. This makes them smoother and finer than American or English candy, which is a matter of national taste preferences. I don't know, but I find it hard to believe that any...

Thanks for that Liz...Tessa clearly got a bit of the writing gene from her dad (and a lot more...she looks so much like him). I had to hold back tears at a few parts. I agreed with what she said...being a writer myself, I totally concur with her reflectiosn on the loss of subtlety and imagination in...

OOOH Another book to add to my already gigantic "books-to-read" pile! Thanks Liz! Sounds like a great, hysterical, and beautifully random read! :cool:

Thanks for that Liz...like you I had only seen Steadman's art connected with Thompson and FALILV. His art seems to be more stable...perhaps because the story is more settled in realistic farm life and not in a drug-addled Las Vegas! Anyway, I like seeing those trademark frantic lines in conjunction ...

Great find Veronica! I'm thinking of getting it because I'm really into gender studies, I love film, and (obviously) I love Johnny! Looks like a really interesting read. Thanks so much!
