I thank my friends and readers

I would like to thank my friends and readers for their excellent comments on “The mystery of Wisdom”.

I have learned a lot from their thoughts and personal definition of Wisdom, and for that I am extremely grateful! I was not mistaken when I decided that your thoughts, my friends, were my favourite book: thank you!

I would also like to thank Fernando, from Arte Y Mundo, for having translated my article (to Spanish) and produced a rather intellectual critique.

Now I would like to pay homage to the following commentators; on the afore mentioned article (by order of appearance):

Zhu: my French friend living in Canada. A wonderful soul and an artist; whom I love interacting with. Her comments are also much appreciated and I adore how we respect each other so much.

Brenda (2): Brenda and I met through our mutual friend, Peter. Her comment on this article was her first in my blog (hopefully the first of many) and her thoughts caught my immediate attention, and I just felt like we had to interact more.

Liza (3): my adorable Philippine friend. Such a gentle soul, a great mom and an excellent person to turn to if you need any hair, skin (you name it) tips. She is a fan of my short stories.

Alexys: my wordsmith friend. Her intellectuality, spirituality, wisdom and humour surmount everything I thought I knew about it. Conversing with her is always a true pleasure and eye tearing (of so much laughter).

Fernando: he is from Buenos Aires and extremely intellectual. His translations, dissertations, and writings are simply awesome. I love conversing with him a lot.

Delirious: a great friend. I love reading her comments! I always learn new things from her. But I particularly like how she makes my friend, LS, go through a rough moment in their debates lol.

Mel (3): my delightful friend. Mel knows that I am a great fan of his and that I appreciate our friendship more than anything. He makes me laugh a lot and conversing with him is always a deep pleasure (I learn a lot from him).

Bob: such an incredible human being and a friend. Amazing sense of humour and depth, I like the way he sees the world. I always wait anxiously for his fantastic comments. Plus, he is my “co-player” in Surrender. His blog on astronomy is awesome: check it out!

Lynda (3): my artist friend. I love her photos and her artwork (check her blog out). Lynda’s thoughts are always deep and amazing; and I must say that whenever we converse I learn new and interesting things. Thanks, my friend!

Renny: my Norwegian friend. I came to discover that he is a gentle and extremely generous human being. His posts are always so interesting and full of history.

Peter: my Aussie friend. I don’t know if I have told him this or not, but I simply adore him and his dry humour (as he calls it). He is such a good soul, so generous, so kind, and in love with his family. Our conversations are simply amazing. His articles are precious!

Kalyan: my friend from India. He is so considered and gentle, amazing. I love taking a peek at his photos, absorbing all the colours and flavours in his articles. His comments are always much awaited, since his thoughts are so deep.

This week, at MAX, it was your moment, your spot light; and you have all performed so graciously: thank you!
It is a huge honour to intercommunicate and socialise with you guys!

In order to be able to achieve and maintain happiness we need to, actively, be able to do two things:
Complain and then let go (Dump the baggage, the roadblocks to happiness.)
Openly Express Gratitude (The open expression of gratitude promotes happiness.)After all, everyone has something to be grateful for and/or something to complain about.

  6. oh max, thanks you so much for those kind words ;)

    Mais uma vez, obrigada :D!

  11. Hey Peter!

    My dear friend, you are welcome :D!
    Thank you for your kind words, mate *bowing*!


  12. Hey Liza,

    You are welcome, darling :D! They came from the heart!


  13. Max, thanks so much not just for the link to my blog, but the links to some of your other readersas well. Until recently I had been wasting so much time searching for blogsites (like yours) that I found relevant and compelling. Then I decided to see who else liked the blogs I like and, amazingly, my search became so much easier! Because of this, my mind has been running in overdrive thinking of ways to bring up the ranks of these quality blogs! I'm on a new mission to help the cream of the blogosphere rise to the top ... and I think posts like this are two steps in the right direction! (Okay, the adrenaline has kicked in and I'm rambling ... but consider this my utmost thanks!)

  14. Hi Brenda!

    "Max, thanks so much not just for the link to my blog, but the links to some of your other readersas well." - you are most welcome :D! Your blog is wonderful, your thoughts are delightful and I just had to share your existence with others!

    "Until recently I had been wasting so much time searching for blogsites (like yours) that I found relevant and compelling." - how I do understand you!! I have done the same and my search isn't over yet!

    "Then I decided to see who else liked the blogs I like and, amazingly, my search became so much easier!" - that is a good strategy!

    "Because of this, my mind has been running in overdrive thinking of ways to bring up the ranks of these quality blogs! I'm on a new mission to help the cream of the blogosphere rise to the top ... and I think posts like this are two steps in the right direction!" - oh my...that is incredibly generous of you :D! And a nice mission if I may say so :D!

    "(Okay, the adrenaline has kicked in and I'm rambling ... but consider this my utmost thanks!)" - lol I actually love it when people ramble, did you know that? You are utterly welcome, darling (in every sense of the expression) *bowing*!

    Thank you for your kind words, darling; they are much appreciated *bowing*!
