Your post was exactly what I had hoped for. Thank you.
I think the response (re: me) there was non-sequitur but that's okay. You and I got my point out there. Love is love, eh? Call it a violent event; it's still love between two consenting people.
I get warm hugs simply by reading posts from my friends here and at VoA. Hopefully, I can pass along the warmth as I post here and there, too.
So, my emotional friend, thank you for your love. Yeah, we'll connect more in the future. I still have another statistical few years left in me.
