Your voice has been clarity and sanity in the midst of chaos. Your blog was welcoming, forgiving and encouraging, and there is no one else in the blogosphere who even approaches the level of excellence you have set before us.
Daily, I drift through the cloud, searching for new and interesting voices, for knowledge and for humor, for wisdom and entertainment. I always found it at the Inn.
From your writing, I would not have known that English was not your first language. You have an ability to communicate that most native speakers will never achieve. You always had something interesting to say, and you said it clearly and with elegance.
More than that, though, you shared your very soul with us, honest and open, and I admire you tremendously for that.
I hope you continue writing, and that you achieve in the larger world the distinction that has been yours here.
You are the best of us, Larisa, the absolute best.
Don't know how you found me; don't much care. Just know this: It's my blog, not yours. Look around if you like, you may even comment if you feel you must...but it's MY blog, so don't bother telling me how to change it. You want changes, go make your own blog.
