I do want your knowledge and help. I know it can be tough getting through to me. I am so use to being strong and untouchable for the sake of others. I have always had to be there for people. Now you are getting through. I hope months and years of my wall don't keep you from trying again.

I listened to Patti Smith's Horses for the first time tonight. What an unusual little record. Many of the piano melodies are sublime, and I like the production.

Ugh. There's an artist that I just could never get into. I respect what she accomplished, and obviously her cover of Because The Night is superb, but I just never liked her.

This is what I like to hear.

Don't misinterpret my ribbings and general verbal roughness as hatred, Screwy. I think you can be rather insufferable, but I do think you have the capacity for kindness towards others (and have shown this in the past) and I want to help you out as much as I am capable. Hell, if I can help make one person better than they were previously, my years on this forum haven't been in vain.

I didn't mean to tell you all to fuck off. I love you all actually. Not in a romantic way of course.

The thing is I am so used to having to be there for people and never having anyone else to lean on. I was wrong. I have you guys. I guess I am so used to having to deal with stuff alone that I accept and become certain of things. Then I realized you can be something but that it doesn't define you.

I was also wrong when I said I could learn more than I could teach. I can't learn more from a classroom but I can learn more from you. I don't feel human. Maybe you all could help me feel like I am and not try to remain a ghost. You know, being there and touching people but never showing that you are human like everyone else.

I need help only the people here could give. I want to fix my flaws and be a better human being. Will you help me?
We are here for you. If you need help, just give the word.

By the way, I want to apologize for coming off like an ass or a jerk the last few days. Part of it is that I'm off my anti-depressants (with doctor approval) and I have to work as best I can through bad days now. Also I really miss Emma. Talking to her would have been really helpful this week.

Not even Gloria? The thing I don't care for concerning that early stuff is that she comes off as a female Lou Reed circa Loaded, and the fragility the lyrics don't come through as they should. But the musicianship can't be faulted.

Meh, it's ok. Certainly not bad or anything, just not my thing.

I sort of feel like my life is a poorly built house. It is missing some support, needs a paint job and should accept house guests. Now I'm finally bringing in some professionals.

No worries.

Now get your ass over here

http://forum.interference.com/f221/r...nt-187673.html

And say you want to participate. That will make you feel better.

Although I'm not sure we'll have enough interested people, but no big deal either way.

I always appreciate the kind word, but I have my fair share of problems as well. We all do.

Now, if I had a degree or something...maybe then that would be a great analogy.

This just made me think of a Springsteen lyric...

"So you've been broken and you've been hurt
Show me somebody who ain't
Yeah, I know I ain't nobody's bargain
But, hell, a little touchup
and a little paint..."
