|Howard's message and this outpouring from veteran TN'ers is very touching.
I hope to improve the newbie response thus far by saying 1) Howard's message inspired me to look at his pictures, 2) they are fantastic and 3) thank you so much, Howard, for greatly enriching TN. Your investments here will continue to bear fruit, even as you turn your energies elsewhere.
More importantly, as a human being, Howard has reached out to tell us he's facing some of the greatest difficulties any of us will ever face. Amidst all that, he's looking inward to tackle demons most of us would rather ignore. There should be no forum where this message is inappropriate. He has bravely offered us a viewpoint by which we may all appreciate our blessings. And our challenges! If we choose to accept it...
I hope Howard's creativity brings him closer to Creation, especially when all else seems to be falling apart. Godspeed.
This from an agnostic-turned-Balinese-Hindu. To each his own!!
