Hello!!

Thank you for opening this post, I've spent the last hour or so reading the "Looking After..." section on these brilliant pages, I have read over the post I put up here (to which I got the most amazing responses I could've wished for) and I've read the hardships that many of our brothers and sisters on here are going through and I find that its just a case of "I wish I could fix everyone's problems here but I cant".

But while that statement rings through for me, there are a couple of fantastic people here who hear that same message ringing in their ears, and what they say to it is "Yeah, I cant fix EVERYTHING.... But I can chip away at bits here and there".

But what those people may miss is even more important, by helping just one magi here back on their feet by offering words of comfort or advice, you are giving that same magi the strength to help other Magi's back on their feet, and so the spiral grows from their effort, helping the lives of the troubled Magi's on the Café, and their friends and families in the real world.

I'm sorry if it seems like I'm babbling here but I have been genuinely moved by some of the acts of kindness that I've seen in these threads, and what I propose is this... Lets give something back? If YOU have been helped by a fellow magi on the threads here... Just say thank you! I suspect one or two members here will be getting NUMEROUS gestures of thanks but so what? Do they not deserve them?

Let me start, I want to thank ALL of the wonderful people who got me through my rocky period a few months back but two names stick out in particular and they would be Photeus and Timothy Drake. Words or gestures will never express the gratitude I have for your many kind words and advice, the only thing I can say is that the world needs people like you to lead the way as you did so brilliantly for me. I dedicate all the good will that this post will (hopefully) give back and I'm sure that your names will be thanked by many more than just me. I honestly couldn't think more highly of you guys and I'm sure that I'm not the only one who notices the many great posts you write on here on a regular basis. I genuinely hope that I get to buy you guys a beer at some convention in the future.

The door is open for everyone else here.... You've only one life to say the things that need to be said, say them and be counted.

Hello Finny,

So great to hear you in such a more positive mood and that things are going better for you. I am most appreciative of your kind words but have to pass the credit on to those in my life who gave me a kick in the pants or a hand up when I need it during my rough times. When you're on the bottom and others pick you up you are inspired by those acts of kindness and in payment to those people you pass it on to others. So I'll share you thanks with all those, both here in the Café and in my life who have bothered to stop and offer support when needed.

And yes.... I do look forward to meeting you at some convention in the future. I've ran into many a Café member on the road and have made many a friend.

All my best,

Tim
