I remember last year - on Superbowl Sunday, 2007 -- I discovered this forum and I am so grateful for that.
I've said this before and here I go again. When I logged on to HealingWell and had to come up with a screen name, I typed in "PianoMan," a name I had never used before. (I'm an amateur piano player, but certainly no Billy Joel.)
It was just before the game was to begin and after posting my first message here, I went out to the family room and -- lo-and-behold -- there was Billy Joel wailing out the National Anthem.
"Kismet," I thought, and I was right.
I want to thank every one of you for your help over the past year and I hope I've been able to spread some good vibes your way as well.
I hope to post here again the day of Superbowl LXI, with the subject line (stolen from Paul McCartney), "It Was Twenty Years Ago Today!" Maybe he'll be singing our national anthem that day at Superbowl -- LOL!
We've got a lot of wonderful things going on in this forum -- the people, the vibes, the prayers -- you name it.
Best to you all,
