Great.  my phone is 220-5764.  I'm going to leave tomorrow for a few days and again to meet my brothers in Moab on the 24th for a little processing (my younger brother died two months ago).  Give me a call if you get over here.  I can give you a free CD of her solo piano music when you come.  Thayne

Istayed in Mormonism [very active] till I was age 59.  I stopped being active then while sorting out my feelings and resigned 2 1/2 years ago.  I've never regretted it.  Nor have I regretted TRYING to believe the storyline for so long.  But I had a lot of anger to deal with for several years -- anger at myself, at fate, at wife, etc. etc.  If you get over to Lava, let me know and lets share a long walk.  My wife of 45 years is still very active in church and writes and plays beautiful piano music.

I could EASILY be a hermit - that lifestyle sounds so very appealing to me.  If I could order everything I need, from groceries to clothes to haircuts, and have them show up at my house so I didn't have to leave I'd be a happy girl.  The odd thing is, I'm a lifelong musician who has performed at some very high levels - I did great, since I play well and am comfortable in front of thousands of people, but I think it's because I'm not interacting with them personally.  I can do my thing, do it well, then head right back home the minute it's over.  I've done that since I was a teenager (I'm 48 now).  It took me years and years to figure out what was "wrong" with me (as in, nothing, but that's not how society views introverts, as I'm sure you know).  I love being this way and find it hard to understand how other people can't see the beauty, joy, and peace in it.

Maybe we can share honors as Top Introvert.  :)  I am a MAJOR introvert, but most people don't realize that about me - I can put on a good show, to a point, and then I'm really, really done.  Most of the time I don't even bother to do that - I spend almost all my time at home (which I'm grateful for - my husband earns a decent living and I'm not forced to work, at least yet), and I could easily go weeks without interacting with another person.  Crazy, huh?

Comments on people's profiles and on Group pages usually show the most recent comment at the top.  Comments to blogs, photos and videos are the opposite, as is the discussion forum.

Welcome Idaho-Spud!  Glad you could join us.  You're not alone up there in Pocatello.  There are others from that neck of the woods on here.  Enjoy the site and community.

Welcome, and if you are from Idaho, so am I.  The Idaho Candy Co. sells Idaho Spuds by the case.
