  • This is a wonderful story Ray.

    Why is that words are so hard to utter when you should do it? Words have such amazing power - they can lift you to the skies or crush you to the ground.

    What is even more interesting, strange, weird... Why is it so hard to accept nice words?

    I am the kind of person who tends to tell to a person when I like her and on many occasions people would behave very strangely after that. Why is it? Why can't i say if I like someone, or I like her outfit, or hair, or whatever? I certainly like it when I am told nice things and I always thank the person. It is just such wonderful feeling!

    There are so many crappy things out there, why not give some kindness? Or is it considered grovelling, flattering in the worse meaning of the words.

    So what is there to do? Nothing.

    And that is why I say to you all – you are wonderful, amazing, beautiful people. Each and every day I learn so much from you. I am sad when I read a sad story and feel happy when I sense you were happy writing it. I can see myself in many of your tales and I am constantly amazed how some stories seem to address the same issue I am pondering over that very minute.

    Thank you all!
