Well I hate putting people on a pedestal.....and I wouldn't want to place them up so high that its too easy for them to fall off.........or get a nose bleed, you know what I mean? :-)......
But once in a while..............or on a whim and a fancy there comes along such a person.
I'm not sure if this is officially a "Them Them".........but ok we'll fly with that.....
Today Gary Woltal wrote a post about Heroes.....Heroes are Right Here in Your Own Backyard....and with the 'Cape' floating around in cyberspace,
I decided to grab it and securely wrap it around........one of my favorite heroes here on Active Rain.
Gary was one of the first members I ever met on Active Rain. I read his posts, and I was 'moved' 'touched' and 'inspired'.......and I've been reading them every since.
Oprah ends her O Magazine Column called "What I know for Sure"..........Well what I know for sure about you Gary............is that You're my Active Rain Hero! And by judging the comments....I'm not the only one that feels that way about you (So Much for me being Special! :-)
I understand that 'heroes' mean different things to different people at different times - in other words its pretty subjective..... Sometimes they're practically invisible and we don't even know who they were until they're gone.......... we feel their presence....but its like the wind and not always tangible.
But when the day is long, and I finally get home and get a chance to put my feet up I know I can go to Gary's Blog and be refreshed....
Not only is he a prolific writing/blogger of seriously committed proportions..........but as a commentator he outdoes himself. I don't remember too many posts that I don't see his comments on. And we're not talking about 'mamby pampby' posts like, 'good job'.......'enjoyed reading your post' or 'thanks of for sharing"......Typically its personal, perceptive, and makes you feel like someone has 'connected' with you in some meaningful way.
They say that one of man's biggest needs is to feel like we 'make a difference'. I Just wanted you to know Gary - that you make a difference in a big Big BIG way! :-)
