Thanks for the deeply touching article. I am embarking on a similar quest and found a great deal of strength in your experience.

It is amazing the similarities in our travels; except I am not as well travelled and the controlling family of in-laws primarily Boston Irish rather than Arab.

Thanks again. I haven't completely figured out the sanction thing [newbie lurker], but 'bonk' anyway.

Cheers,

TrT

Many thanks to the rest of you. Here are your words and bonks.
 
Brant Gaede
– Thank you for some nice thoughts and your appreciation. I agree fully that the joy we can attain is well worth the pain we have to endure at times.
 
Eve V. Stenson
– Thank you for your kind words and observations. I am pleased you have populated your world with such good people. Keeping the dirty rotten scoundrels away frequently can be a full time job, but if you don’t have to do it, count your blessings.
 
Nicole
– Who on earth could have such bad taste as to turn you down? You are a sweetheart. Believe me, despite the hurt, you just escaped a major headache in life (sigh… tell me about it…). From the looks of things around here, I don’t think you will lack for more highly suitable aspirants. I wish you every happiness you can get.
 
Thank you so much for liking my article as much as you did. I am pleased to no end that it touched you. Yes, Kat and I are both happier than either of us thought we would be at this time in our lives. We have both paid some serious dues in life. (Now, to paraphrase you), but there are women like Nicole in the world... this fact makes my day much brighter! (I am sure Kat feels that way too.)
 
Good hunting and if all else fails and you can’t forget you ex, shoot the bastard.
 
Joel Català
– I went ahead and bonked you, since I sort of got the idea you liked my article from between the lines. Anyway, thanks for the thoughts.
 
Roger Bissell
– My God! Another trombone player! I thought I left all that behind! Dayaamm! Thank you so very, very much for the kind words. I am looking forward to your story.
 
Kitten, Glenn and Sarah
– Thank you for standing up for me. Actually that link was supposed to be insulting. That dude’s whole story is – since it was completely fabricated. It has been discovered that this person does not exist, it is only a pseudonym for a very troubled individual who has problems with the envy, hatred and cowardice eating at his insides and has an ax to grind with both Solo and myself (for some bone-headed reason). Just a guru wannabe who ain’t never gonna be getting drunk and trying to show his ass in public under a pseudonym.
 
I do hope he finds peace of mind and can produce something worthwhile somewhere.
 
Todd Townsend
– Thank you so much. I am flattered that I brought you out of your lurking-only status. I do hope you will start contributing. The "bonk" is my pet name for what is officially called a sanction (in New Zealand it means something else… ahem…). When you like something on Solo that someone posts, you can sanction it by clicking on the little checkmark at the top of the post. You can also sanction articles, news stories and any other content you find special in a similar manner. That gives points to the poster. Since I am shamelessly bonking those who like my article, I just bonked you. Now bonk me back! //;-)
 
Special thanks to my friend, John Newnham again. You rock. And (wow, is this getting redundant!) thank you all once more from all the way down.
 
Michael

Vernon, Michael and I don't see eye to eye on a lot of things but I think your "link" is not only inappropriate but down right insulting.

I hope its your attempt at "humor" because it seems to me your trying to throw a question in to his story. And it really makes your  story questionable.
I checked the link.  I have heard of this fetish.  Saturday Night Live or Mad TV did a satire of it years ago in which a divorced man hired a prostitute to mistreat and humiliate him in a hotel room as his ex-wife did because it gave him arousal.  Incredibly, a search of the Yahoo! Member interests shows this actually happens:

http://members.yahoo.com/Romance___Relationships/Adult/BDSM/

Vernon, I do not think Michael fantasizes about this -- though I confess I do not know him that well.

As for yourself, your name "Vernon Redwine" appears to be a play on words:
 
In Spanish, "ver" means "to see."  Meanwhile, "redwine" serves as a color metaphor for "blood."
 
Are you for real?  Or are you just someone who "sees blood" for SOLO?

MSK,

Wow, and I was impressed when you said you had seen the 3-plate stack in Brazil already.

But all joking aside, it's amazing that through all this personal trauma your sense of life has stayed intact.  I'd imagine it difficult enough to keep perspective of the benevolence in the world after dealing with evil, but even harder to retain a healthy sense of justice as I've seen from your posts on the forum.

Just so I don't leave these last out:

Lance - No I don't drink anymore. I did enough for 5 lifetimes so I don't really miss it anymore either. Unlike most all reformed abusers, I admit to many, many, many fond memories. So, bottoms up. I take that as a high compliment and thank you very much. (Just be careful with the deep end - it is real and it will swallow you if you let it. But have fun.)

JJ - Wow for me too. Thank you so very much. It is weird calling a woman "JJ" because one of the artists I produced for years was JJ Jackson (an American bluesman in Brazil who used to sing with Jimi Hendrix, not the MTV "Automatic Lover" one who passed away). So when I say "JJ" an extremely different mental image comes to mind!!!

I will say something about sense of life here. I am used to maintaining it by myself (hmmm - maybe another article idea...). I have found many other people who share my sense of life on Solo, so this is like an unexpected treat for me at this stage of my life. Frankly I am basking in it and will do whatever I can to help preserve it. (After all, that is what a value is, isn't it? Something you strive to obtain and/or keep? That's me here, and about as precise as it gets.)

Luke - LOLOLOL... You checked out the sexual fantasy of that poor bastard? LOLOLOLOL... Trying to understand his mentality? LOLOL... It ain't sex, Luke - it's envy...

But hey, thanks a lot. I do slumming for my friends too sometimes.  //;-)

Michael

Sharon,

I don't drink anymore, but whatever you're having, pass some to Kat.

Thank you. Happy 4th of July to you too and Happy Birthday America!
