    hello all,

    I apologize for my slowness in responding, but I have spotty wireless service.

    Almost atheist, thanks for pointing out the fact that I'm UP. You are right...we need to get away from the WT jargon hard-wired in our brain, or at least co-opt it for our own nefarious purposes.

    KK, I've emailed you...

    Jgnat, I'd love to hear about the writing projects on your plate. I've read some of your posts--insightfully written.

    And everyone else, thanks for helping me see 'New Light', and for your encouragement. Makes me feel that my years hunkered in front of a computer have not been a waste. And THAT feels good.

    a little overwhelmed,


  • Legolas

    Welcome to the board!

    Welcome to the board Daniel.

    It counts not how long it took you, but the fact that you're here now.

    Hope you are a happy boy now.

    Hi Bubble, very true. Perhaps I needed some incubation time in the dark. Or something.

    LittleRockGuy, I'd like to hear more about your experience. I know what you all mean by drifting, perhaps we learned this form of acceptable denial by being JWs, no?

    Again, thanks for the welcomes.

    That is very sweet of you, apostawriter. Here's a link to some of my favorite work here on JWD.


    I have not yet demonstrated the discipline to carry a work from inception to publication. But I am pretty sure I'll be brave enough to weather any storms that might come after.
