hello NB_ers
I've been snuggling between lines on this list as though multicoloured clothes to bury a face in pressed up against the back of a cupboard.   that back has given way to a world.   inexplicably. unexpected.  will always come back here to this overwhelm.  
it felt that to speak at all i needed to speak against, in defence - give reasons, excuses, explanations, i didn't know how to speak the pain lightly and without blame -  i did need all your tongues to get here . . . to have SO MANY TONGUES!  . . . i have arms, quenched arms, soaked arms, dissolved arms for each of them
thank you all - and Ruth for highlighting Aileen's extraordinary post, and these bits in particular:
Yet it is also a measure of how very safe, protected and sheltered I am that other people were paying attention, and they looked after me when I felt unable to function. 
yet the experience of being a sad, hurt, lonely child is so widespread and so common that a platform like this establishes a foundation for understanding, for solidarity, for mutual respect. There are no monsters. There are only people, and as human beings we are all fallible and vulnerable beings in need of one another in so many different ways.
What mattered was that she was met with understanding and respect by those with whom she shared her story. That enabled her to say, “It’s all right. It’s over now.”
i think of the existence of this list as a resource for the void and void for the impulses of elitism :-)
yoicks!  elk in the firmament . . . nothing is as it seems.  father christmas is a spider spin doctor with giddying side effects that turn you gaga AAAARGH!
i made the attached videos some days ago but constraints prevented my posting it . . . apologies for poorest quality  . . .
it was made in a legs_don't_fail_me_now and/or make_me_giddy_gaga moment

I feel heard in many different ways.  amazing grace.  to all.
