Warmhearted.

Look what I found in my iSpQ inbox as I got home. A message from a guy I've never even chatted with before on iSpQ.




*********

Just a shout out to say Hi. I have your blog on my RSS reader and always enjoy it.  I love the photographs and being able to feel the spirit in which you live your life.  When I was young I would have given anything to be able to have such a view into the life of a gay man whose passions I could understand and relate to.  Whenever you think there is no one out there, or you think what is the point of continuing your blog, rethink it.  Those you inspire will probably be silent and invisible.

When Slovenia won their medal the other night, it reminded me that I never responded to your blog when you questioned its value several moons ago. It certainly has had value for me.

Best,

Jay

Needless to say, my day is done and my heart is a very warm place now. Thanks, Jay!

Wow! That is a very cool comment! I guess a lot of readers don't put a comments, but judging by that cool comment, they enjoy the blog just the same.

Guess it is so, yes, but sometimes I just don't know whether my idea of LJ is a proper one. :)

And yes, I really, really loved that message I got.

Well, never saw myself as "amazing". I know I can have some bright moments, but that's it.

And you're so nice to say that, James.

we all love your pictures and your journal (I confess an envy to why your pictures always look so good, while mine usually just look like pictures... LOL).

Anyway, sweet man, you are fun to read, to watch and to tease...
