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.
