From The Heart

I have written poetry for and dedicated posts to those people on blogger who have touched some deeper part of me. And in my comment sections I share laughter and humorous jabs with people who have made a difference in my life.  Yes, those things shared in a comment are brief, but no less human in their brevity.

If you read my comment sections you will see my partner in the Alliance, threatening Pat, The Arse Licking Cat. You know him as Dez or The Hollywood Spy, and his avatar, a cute and colorful figure was designed to resemble him.


This is the man behind the avatar. This is Miroslav and I have come to feel for him as a mother towards a son.  In his eyes I can see the reflection of a soul that has known horror and tragedy but has miraculously emerged from them with a kind and loving spirit.

Our correspondence is literary in form, much in the manner of an epistle and I find this soothing as it is steeped in honor and in tradition-two words I have come to associate with Miroslav.  He is a highly educated man and our conversations go beyond the trivial and range a wide variety of topics.  It is with him that I am able to express my concerns for the future of my country as he undestands the workings of global economics and the importance of world history and it is with him that I can share the culture of my people as he knows of it's ancient origins. He in turn has shared much of his life with me in his writings and I have been enriched by this experience.

So please join me as I pay homage to this young man in a series of posts in the coming weeks.

It's Sunday and I don't know who is and who isn't posting today. I must attend Mass today so I will be in later this afternoon to comment.

  4. Well I, for one, will be looking forward to the series. On a slightly related matter, did you you publish a post yesterday and then withdraw it? I noticed something in my blogroll, but by the time I clicked it it said the page was not available - curious!

    1. I asked her that question about the missing post too :)

    2. I've been getting a lot of questions about that. That was a draft of a guest post I'm doing for Mel. I accidentally pushed publish instead of save. The post will run on July 25th over at Mel's place.

  7. Looking forward to other posts like this Anne. I've never followed Dez so I haven't got around to checking out his blog but he does seem like a nice guy, especially since he's involved in this Alliance thing which I find pretty hilarious most of the time.

  10. PFFFFFFFT! That is all the cat has to say, PFFFFFFT and PFFFFFFT some more. At least by putting Penguin Man's picture up you can scare the rats away and right towards the cat for a snack, so I guess there are some benefits hahahaha

    Nice of you to do, now if you will excuse the cat I have to go use the loo.

    Oh and just wait until tomorrow's post. You get a nice present from the cat hahahaha best thing ever.

    1. pfftttt all you want, cat, you will lurve the interviews even though you're our mortal enemy! And me knows you is jealous of my stunning looks, cat, but walruses have always been prettier than cats!

    2. @Pat you vile, despicable creature. I have yet to unleash the most powerful weapon in my arsenal on you. Guilt. That's right guilt. I'm Irish, I'm Catholic and I'm an experienced mother so I'm a master at the craft. On the day I post your figure Cat, you will know guilt on such a level that you will feel compelled to write a post that sings my praises to the heavens!!! I look forward to tomorrows post as it will ultimately be another nail in your coffin!!

      @De he will be reading those posts every night before he goes to sleep for months to come just so he can dream of you darling. Jealousy is what drives his behavior and we all know it!!

    3. LOL, the cat is so very much doomed....

    4. He's in so far over his head. He's already drowned and he doesn't know it. Silly Cat.

    5. Geez, you just wait. You'll never guess what tomorrow's post would be in a million years. A spur of the moment idea that will surely make some laugh, some cringe and some pee their undies hahahaha.

      And me write a dedication post to you? Hmmm I could do that in one form or another, even top old one eye's hahaha jealous pffft is all I say to that too pffft and pfft some more. But the cat will come each night, because then I'll be put to sleep easier haha

  11. This was lovely, Annzie, you know I share all the warm feelings you have for me :) I really hope people will like our talks and that they will have the patience to read through the more serious stuff that expects them.

    1. I hope to do this in such a way that by the time we get to the final installment people will approach it in the proper spirit and will understand that no matter where we are from we share one thing: our humanity. If we can inspire even just a few people then we will have done a good thing.

    2. that's my opinion as well, Annzie.
