Hi there folks... I am new to the site, thanks to a twitter invite, I found the community and have been lurking for a few days. I am not new to the idea's presented here in all forms and fashions, but for a very long time, I have had them suppressed the last 11 years in a marriage to a person that found most of my ideas and beliefs comical. I tried to live the perfect white picket fence marriage, but it didn't work for me in a lot of ways, and I moved myself on from her, and with in days of the divorce it feels like my eyes were opened again to what I was missing all this time.
I am trying to relearn what I knew, and have immersed myself in books, and studies to try and get back what I feel I have lost. It is a great feeling to be open to the world again. I look forward to reading, and getting to know all of your ideas, thoughts and experiences...
Welcome Brian..... I hope you find what you need here.. I`m sure that you will. Look around, kick some tires & get comfortable.
Welcome, Brian and enjoy your journey! I am curious to read more from you.

There is also a lesson there about surrender and release what is unimportant, as some people just seem to desire to hold others back and feed off of the misery they generate!
