Jason,

I've spent some time dealing with men and their lives over the years (a long story) and remember being struck by the common problem of separation between fathers and sons. As it turns out, the return path is a one way street that can only be walked by the son. The father's job is to prepare a place for him to land safely.

I am not suggesting for one moment that anyone here plays a maternal or paternal role and, as yet, there seem to be no children present-but the preparation of a place to land keeps coming to me and I think you can see why. Diane, Nari and Bernard have faithfully prepared just such a place.

I needed to leave Rehab Edge after six years of daily defending, questioning, and, hoping not to sound too dramatic, pouring my blood onto the page because those in charge took the money and ran. They also gave in to a senseless harpy who made it her mission to repeatedly and publicly impugn what she concluded was my lack of integrity (Too dramatic again? Sorry).

Anyway, here I am. There's not much personal chat about football teams or gun control or bragging about how clever anyone thinks they are and I'm very grateful for that. Rehab Edge has had more of that the past week than I've ever seen before. I'm sure their advertisers will be thrilled. Take a look at the "top posters" there in the directory and see where all but one have gone.

I'm glad you're here, and I look forward to your first post outside of the Arrival Lounge.

Hi,
That's what I tell my home care patients. As Barret's some time consiglieri,
and one of his first toadie/lackeys, I'm glad to be here. I hope you have a some kind of Star Wars system in place so that a certain unguided missle can't get in.
Barrett, I'm glad that you can finally be at ease.

Gary

Hi Gary, welcome.
>I hope you have a some kind of Star Wars system in place so that a certain unguided missle can't get in.

We can easily deal with those, and with any misguided ussles/hustles/hussies/ etc. too. This is a site with every techie contraption our generous genius in residence Captain (Jean-Luc) Bernard has ever come upon to create a vessel capable of daring deep space rescue. It has everything from warp speed to subtle manouverability, and the transporter works both ways. It has troll deflector shields and plenty of dilithium crystal; no Borg is likely to make it past the sensor array.

(Nothing important Nari, I can assure you, it's just Star Trek jargon, details of the starship Enterprise mixed up with details of the starship S.S. SomaSimple. It's metaphor straight out of my own undermind.)

Ahh...Star Trek. I did watch the very early episodes, and fell partly in love with the enigmatic, pragmatic Mr Spock...but that's about all.

Now that's a worthy thread - the undermind...?

Hi All,

I was wondering if Barrett's old Bulypitt on RE is accessable anywhere? I'm rather new to these forums and I was enjoying and learning much from the old threads in the pit and then poof they were gone. Still searching.....

Wow, I feel silly for I just clicked into the old archives and ansewered my question. It looks like I just found a lot more reading and learning to catch up on.

Default So this where you are "hiding"!

Barrett,

It's been a long time. I visited your site and saw the link here (the one about the MFeRs...hope that wasn't too rude for this crowd). I just got through the thread and a couple of other ones. I don't know how I'll manage through all this stuff...and the fact that I'll have to go to Barnes and Noble or eBay and pick up a few books!

I hope I may be able to bring "something" to this crowd...although just reading the threads remind me of the "old" days and that I may not have to be such a loud voice any longer.

Sebastian = Bas (I get it now.),

I "see" the personality now in the posts I've read! After reading Barretts' "A Sense of Things" I'm wondering if I could actually "taste" a personality.

Good to be here. Seems so vast!
