Saturday Reflections



I have spent the past two days trying to get caught up with Blogatopia ( please do read post of June 20th,The Apology /Explanation Post, to learn about my Hiatus). I have been hearing your stories and it seems that many had Bitter Winters and a hard Spring. My Heart has been lifted and filled by so many warm comments, I am so glad that so many understood what I have been experiencing. I am so grateful to be still a part of your lives. The Cafe is Open again ,chairs and floors dusted, fresh coffee and corn bread. Please let's all take care of each other and let's make Something Wonderful happen in the next 578 days. I love you all and the Exiled Enigma has indeed returned. I can no longer do this alone. Solitude will not heal my heart, or what is ailing this Country.Thank you for pulling me back from The Edge.
It is time to fight back with Hope...

Tis good you are sitting up on a pedestal in your "Solitude".

I don't think it shall last, i.e., I have the feeling bodies will soon be piling up high of those who have thrown themselves at your feet in total adoration!

enigma4ever said...

Well, Dada it has not been lonely at all here the past two days ( see down below the Flaming June post- I did indeed run out or Coffee ;-)

Good to see you friend....

Anon-Paranoid said...

You still make the best coffee I've ever had.

I also doubt that you will ever be lonely with the amount of friends you have.

God Bless.

DivaJood said...

Beautiful painting.

Solitude doesn't necessarily mean loneliness, of course. But we are all glad you're back.

skippy said...

it's difficult when you're hit with ted barlow disease; i know, i've been fighting it off myself for the last year.

welcome back, blogger!

Skippy: I am not sure what Ted Barlow disease is...but please do read the post below- the Flaming June Post- June 20th- it explains my situation- I was definently affected by the Events in DC related to Gonzogate.....and have been on quite a path as a Whistleblower for about 7.5 years...and the shit hit the fan this winter with the Dismantling of the JD....BUT I am back....I had to come BACK to Blogatopia....it is where the Real America is....

Diva: thanks...I don't feel so Alone anymore...

ANon P: I don't feel alone at all now...Bless you too..namaste....

Hi Enigma.

I'm returning your visit. Thanks for stopping at my blog. I had commented here a few times and maintained a link to your blog for a long time a year or so ago. I had also spoken to you over at Night Bird's Fountain, but you never responded.

I'm glad to read that your life is getting back together.

Anyway, I'd be happy to trade links with you.

enigma4ever said...

Chuck : thanks for coming by.....I am so sorry that I never responded- I might have been passing through over there and not stopped back...so sorry- that is rude of me....and thanks for maintaining a link to my blog....If I can just get my template to let me add to the Blogroll I am adding your blog....thanks for be willing to trade links...

Larry said...

Glad the cafe is open and the chairs are dusted off, as I don't plan on leaving.

enigma4ever said...

Thanks Larry....make yourself at home you are amoung friends ;-)

Jamie said...

I noticed you stopped by Eprof2's blog. He comes by Crawfords List regularly even though he's not blogging. He's been quite busy with a part time teaching job in California and traveling back and forth between there and his home in Arizona when not working..

D.K. Raed said...

E, Ted Barlow Disease refers to missing bloggers, at least that's the way I understand it. The USDA-Gonzo-Gate is enough to put anyone off their feed (and up on a pedestal contemplating their toes). I'm glad your TBD wasn't permanent! Now, where's the herbal tea for us non-caffeiners, or is it open bar? Make mine a Black Toe of Calcutta ... that's where you pour vodka over your stubbed toe, what happens after that is %#&+! ~~ D.K.

enigma4ever said...

Hey there DK:
Well, I just was worried was TEd Barlow Disease treatable ??? Will I recover ? Is there even a Cure? or do I just live with it?....cuz we know that Gonzogatitis is serious, and barely treatable...Hmmm, I still have plenty of tea and oh my we will have to scrape up some vodka to pour over that Broken toe.....Hang in there....

It's good to read your posts again.

Enigma:

From Jamie's post, I learned that you have stopped by my old blog. Thank you, even though I haven't published anything lately. I've become a lurker with occasional comments. I have about five or six sites that I visit every day. Now that I know you're back I'll be stopping by regularly. I always enjoyed your posts and points of view and look forward to new expressions of hope and optimism from your writing.

Enigma: I can't find a valid email addy for you, so I can send your interview questions. Please email me at dpraay@gmail.com
Thanks

Holly said...

I think we all have Ted Barlows disease at times

jurassicpork said...

E4E: You owe us a lotta coffees on the house, girl. That was the scariest frigging online disappearance that I've ever gone through.

Skeptic said...

I had become hooked by yet another wonderful red head. And then you disappeared and yes, jp, it was one scary frigging online disappearance. I am so relieved to know that you and your son have settled in your new home.
Methinks you are not yet out of danger, so please continue your vigilence, without loosing yourself to it.
May I provide some tea for the cafe? (I never have figured out how something that smells so wonderful can taste so totally awful to me.)
I am so glas you're back and I'm anticipating daily visits.

Dusty said...

My heart sings when I come by the cafe now and see your postings..I LOVE IT!

The blogosphere was incomplete without your wisdom E4E.

Solitude is good for awhile but then we need human contact again...or we will turn out like the Big Dick Cheney..and we can't have that.One is more than enough :P

enigma4ever said...

Dusty: Good to see you too.....so good...ahh geee...Dick...well, I don't want to turn into the Lord of Darkness, Heaven forbid....

Skeptic: Thank you...no I am back now...and my son and I are okay....and we will be okay , one day...and yes, I don't know what the furture holds....all I can do is keep writing....and hoping...

JP: I am sooooo Sorry, I never ever meant to have folks worry...or scared ...I am so sorry. I had no idea this little blog mattered so much....but I am back for good....after much thought and soul searching.....I have nothing left to lose at this point....all I can and should do is write...and we all know that I never charge for the coffee....ever..and yours is always on the house....

Holly: yup- I think we all have the TB disease sometimes - you said it- and I am sure you are right....

The Future: yup- sent it off to you- hope you got it....good to see you...How else can I yell at Pelosi if you didn't stop by?

Prof: so good to see you...please do keep dropping in...the Cafe here always welcomes your wisdom and vision....me too. ( I do really really miss your blog...still).

Anony: okay I went to the Blog you posted- and OH MY...there are none since April 2006...NONE...so now I am worried...will I recover ????gosh I guess I can only hope...is there some Chad Everrett out there to treat us sufferin' souls ( ekkgads- there must be someone better than That???) Thanks though- you made me laugh....

JB: love seeing you here too. I am going to try to blog as much as possible...atleast a few times a week....it matters....

More tomorrow night...
