My Tribe

I walk through normal life, an oddity,
My colors bright, my mind never at rest,
And never meet the likes of one like me,
Beset by words, by haunting image blessed;
I sleep through dreams of spaces where alone
I search for signals sent from my own kind,
Or listen for the light enchanting tone
Of voices harmonious, happily entwined,
But when my tribe I gladly meet anew,
And read from flashing eyes acceptance dear,
Then understanding kisses warm and true
My cheeks, and eliminates the fear
Of days between each meeting when I fret
And wish the details never to forget.

- Nayad A. Monroe

Did you get a chance to check out Saratoga Springs at all?

A bit! The area around the hotel was great, with lots of restaurants within walking distance, so I only ate in the hotel restaurant once. It's a picturesque street. I didn't do any shopping outside of the dealer room, but I heard many people raving about a used bookstore nearby. I'd definitely go back to Saratoga Springs again, preferably around the same time of year. I heard that in the summer the town is way too crowded.

Well, if you do visit again, please let me know! I live right up the road (and yes, there was much gnashing of teeth over not being able to go to WFC). I also used to live in Saratoga in the late 80s. Back then it was still a decaying little upstate town, kept alive mainly by Skidmore College and the influx of tourists while the track was open (only in August, the first year I lived there!). But even then, summer was a bad time to visit, unless you were there for the ponies.

I believe I may have just set a new record for time passed in between comment and response.

Re: Hi
Recently, life for me has been pretty much made of Awesome with whipped cream and cherries on top, so I can't complain. And how are you?

Re: Hi
That's good! I'm glad your life is awesome.

I just got out of a long relationship, feeling sad, trying to figure out what to do with my life.

I was just looking around the web and found a mention of Shae that led me here.

Re: Hi
I'm sorry to hear that, and I hope that you won't be sad for too long.
