One of own, Uncle Bear, needs our help.
I want to preface this post by stating that I’ve been working on it since I read Berin’s personal Blog post this afternoon. While working on this post I came across this item over at The Bone Scroll. I want to ask forgiveness from the network for throwing this onto the feed.
I have been following Uncle Bear over at his site and his social network over at Ning since 2007. I am proud to be one of his Dire Paladins. It was Uncle Bear’s inspiration that caused me to shift from posting exclusively at the Cafe and branching out on my own. I have never met the man face-to-face but I consider him one of my best friends.
Right now he should be on cloud 9 but isn’t. His passion is bearing fruit but his passion is not meeting his and his lovely wife’s needs. I know the economy sucks right now and I won’t bore you with my own trials and tribulations. Those of you who frequent my blog know what I’m going through and I hope that you all will jump on board with this. My grandfather once cautioned me about feeling despondent, “I thought I was bad shape because I had no shoes, until I met the man with no feet.”
I must have written and rewritten this article 10 times. I’m having difficulty articulating this. Berin would NEVER come out and ask for our help. That said, I am in agreement with the Bonemaster. I have benefited from Berin’s kindness, praise, and his postings. I would like to do something to help him out.
Berin we want to Help. How can we do it?
