As I recently misinterpreted the post of "Here's to Hope" and rained on his parade and was called a turd for doing so, it made me realize just how much "we" in cyberspace really don't know each other, though we readily throw out our two-cents worth of advice, opinion and counsel to "friends" who are truly just strangers.
You don't really know me. I don't really know you. This whole blog thing is such a game... it's an illusion! It's a facsimile, not the real thing.
I apologize if I've offended you - any one of you - and hope you understand that if I've offered my opinion on your life through your blogs, it is only because I've thought I was trying to help and I've felt a connection and need to care. I recognize I may come across at times as being "holier than thou", though I've tried to reveal my insecurities, frailties, imperfections and shortcomings as well, in hopes that you see how vulnerable I am and how many answers I don't know - especially at this stage in my life. I truly apologize for any arrogance or superiority. I'm feeling pretty stupid and naive right now.
Maybe Mark Twain was right when he said...
"It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt!"
