    great to see Aurora is all smiles, good on ya Aurora!

    Regarding the last part of your post sk, what you said reminds me of a quote from the Gospel of Thomas
    – Jesus said, "Let he who seeks not cease seeking until he finds. When he finds, he will be troubled. And when he becomes troubled, he will marvel, and he will reign over the totality and find repose."

    Your Bunny looks like an angel. As all children are. You seem to be treading in a bit of sorrow lately, I can only hope for the best with you and your family. Again, in reality, this is really none of our business. The fans and friends who are unconditionally devoted to you, in good times and bad, only wish for happiness and life's fulfillment for each other and onto you.Take inventory of the life you have lived and smile at the moments that are/were special- the ones that threw you off course only created a new map for you to follow. I wish you well.

    Love the "e-empire"
    as well it should be for you !!

    5 days and counting…

    As always,

    My 2 1/2 year-old daughter sings Paradox…problem is she phrases…
    "you are a pair-of-socks to me" – I bust out laughing everytime she does it.

    Good to see your bunny beside you, but hey SK whatever is blocking your way right now just don’t forget you’re never alone no matter what you think!
    Oh, and seeing as you paid so much for those pearly whites, you need to pick yourself up and show em a little more often eh? There are many of us out in this big wide world routing for you as well as Aurora

    Good to hear your Aurora is doing well. I have to laugh when you refer to her as the human bunny, cuz I have the male version of her with some pretty
    pretty big chompers and he does a dead on rabbit impersonation. Suffer, overcome, then move on has
    been my story too, seems I'm on an even keel for a limited time and then I start to list and sink. I'm working on re-floating my vessel right now. Let's look forward to better days Steve, I know it will

    Awwww, cute picture of you both, (has sk almost cracked a smile?)!
    I think Aurora deserves a real pet bunny to love and cuddle, the little chocolate-brown fluffy ones with big brown eyes and huge floppy ears are adorable….who knows, it's cuteness'n'fluffiness might cheer you up too sk??????

    Take care u Kilbeys,
    love Amanda

    Steve…(sigh!)I feel your pain. Like others, I can relate. Seems like you've come upon a few miles of bad road. Hang in there…you are a survivor! Do what you know is right and good.

    I'll be praying for you!

    Your daughter is adorable!! Let her know someone in Massachusetts wishes her well.

    Broken Toys and Heros – nice!!
    Haaz – Congrats!!!

    Right now I am finding that moving forward feels like sinking down despite my best efforts at dog paddling. I have hope that the universe miraculously provides something quietly magical just when we need it most. Yesterday I had a complete stranger give me the change I needed to buy bread. It was only 10 cents but it was such a lovely act of kindness.It turned my whole day around. Aurora is a gorgeous girl!

    Cute kid, I don't know how to make this non kiss ass but does she realize what you have done? I'm listening to Night Friends now and I often wonder would a child appreciate it… I think so. You're born with 100% purity and everyday of your life on this Earth erodes that somewhat.Sometimes hate is better right? I dont' know and I bet you don't either..

    I love the childs comment about "you're a pair of socks to me"….I will forever hear that in Paradox! Also the comment about not having any "wanted problems"; I'm sure we can all relate. Problems on the homefront can be worse than the work kind; at least you don't have any problem to worry about with your bunny child; because no problem is worse than worrying over a child. All us big kids learn to work through whatever it is dragging us down eventually; and those of us with more years on us have more experience getting on with getting on. Take care Steve.
