Yes, study him, that is a more worthwhile endeavor than trying to impress him. It’s almost 11 am your time and you are having him over in a few hours then, the afternoon. Probably going to be a visit of no consequence, like you wrote, you don’t expect to see him in the next ten years. So this visit is of no practical significance to you, makes no difference. Nothing to lose, really, so you can make anything of it, use it to practice anything you would like.
Oh, we posted at the same time and your latest poem on the other thread is printed! Beautiful! Thank you. I hope it will not be an awful mess. Beer and fried chicken, lucky guest! I hope he deserves the treat!
I didn’t read ANY (as in none) of the above comment by stalker. Please read my post on the thread “Sick of Depression” I think it is called, posted it a few minutes ago regarding the matter.
I do so appreciate you standing up for me, Jack. This is quite amazing, I feel like I can stand up for myself, all by myself, here in tiny buddha … and in life otherwise, mostly. This is what HELP means, I see: you helped me and then I helped myself, your help made it possible for me to further help myself. I do not expect you to stand up for me anymore, as if it was your job. I do appreciate it MORE than you imagine, I believe. Greatly appreciate it!!! I am so happy that I don’t need help at THIS point. Thank you very much!!!
If I stop analyzing myself and other people… why, who would I be? This is my life. You probably mean OVER analyzing, and as in over doing anything, is not effective. But you do have a life, Jack, do not minimize it, or devalue it or yourself! You and your life are very valuable!
