must be a blue moon...
cribbed from trinity4778:

..on the theory that we could all use a hearty dose of positive energy and general warm fuzziness while we wait, none too patiently, for spring and better times; that *no* one I know is getting told often enough what a good job ze's doing just getting through this crazy, lovely world. Take a second, and mention something you like about me (if such a thing exists) in the comments. Then repost this to your own journal, and have some goodness for yourself.

I love your writing and how much you are at peace with yourself.

You are without a doubt the most sensitive and soulful fellow I know, as well as one of the kindest. I won't even go into the vast talent you have in writing and creativity. Having you as a friend has been a real gift. (And you also have excellent taste in spouses! :) )

Where even to begin, dearest?

You're such a gentle soul. It blows my mind how much you know about the world. You are wise and kind and funny and strong.

You possess a sparkling Irish charm that is magnetic; people want to be around you, they want you to like them, they feel good in your presence.

You are a loyal and true friend, a "sensitive guy" in the best sense of the word, and you have a marvelous, warped, wicked sense of humor. You are a romantic in all senses of the word.

You get the world I live in, in ways that many people don't.

You are one of the few people I can equally well talk for endless hours with, and be totally silent with, and both of those feel natural.

You are amazingly gifted. You write with lyricism and poetry and vitality. You are endlessly creative, always seeking new means of expression. I particularly love sharing music with you; you always know what will "get" me and I experience so much music that I would never hear of except for you.

You are supportive of me, enthusiastic about everything I attempt, and safe, reassuring, and comforting when I need it. Hell, it was your interest that largely got me working on my book again!

You are incredibly beautiful.

I can't fathom that there was a time that you weren't my best friend. I prefer to think that we just hadn't run into one another in a long time.

That's the tip of the iceberg. But if I go on much more your head's gonna get too fat to fit through the door, ya big lug. ;-)

I'm not feeing terribly original right now, and prehensile_wit said it all much better anyway.

But you have the best aura of anybody I know.

That is I agree with the others. I love the way you always seem to make time to say hello to people and ask how they are - and you actually listen while doing it. You ar always friendly and seem to "know" if someone needs cheering up. I also like the way you can see your devilish side lurking in your eyes, just waiting for a chance to break loose.

A little less than a year ago I would have said that being graced with a smile from you was among the greatest joys in the world (and the idea that I might ever be able to bring such a smile about just tickles me beyond belief). Since then I've seen your writing, and ... it causes emotion to bubble up in me like little else ever has (really, really good opera by singers who truly feel what they're singing is the only thing to come to mind). Usually joyous, almost childish delight in the beauty and wonder your words convey. Every time you post some of your writing to LJ, I feel like you've given me a gift.

From the moment I got into the passenger seat of Selkie, I somehow just knew that you were going to be someone important, on some level, in my life down here. I'm still sort of figuring out the hows and wherefores, but ever since that fateful ride home, the thought won't leave me.

You carry with you, at all times, a great and palpible sense of caring for those around you that is lacking in so many; too many people get lost in the everyday and what's in front of their face to give into the great love that you seem to have tapped into and enjoy sharing with those around you.

You are amazingly focused, understanding, and yet playful. As someone who strives for that balance, I really understand what a tenuous game that can be. And yet you play it well, with flair, and everyone around you can feel it.

If I can only learn, grasp, hold, conquer -fuck, examine, feel, experience for a fleeing moment - whatever it is that you have that eminates from your very soul, I would be that much closer to understanding my place in the world.

For the fact that you live and breathe anywhere near me, I am eternally grateful. And doubly lucky that our superficial link through our '48 characters only gives us more impetus to talk, spend time, and put our heads together; more Fate than one girl is allowed to cash in on.

You're wicked awesome, evcelt, and the second you feel otherwise you find me so I can remind you.

I like how offbeat you are. You know a lot of stuff that I don't know and have lots of eclectic interests. Also, you look damn good for 40 ;)

There are many words, spoken by our friends, that say much of what I want you to know.
Sometimes I think you are the other me... not an "evil" twin, but just another part of my soul, somehow seperate. Your words and poems touch me.
I admire your loyalty, and your convictions. I admire your taste in wives and friends. I admire your art and understanding.
I know that wherever I end up, that you will be there for me... and that when we walk parallel paths you will always have a wave and a smile for me.
Something nice about you? You are my friend. I think that's pretty nice...

You have never physically violated me, or killed anyone I liked very much.

I'll have to add one of those to my "to do" list.

You are probably one of the easiest people to talk to, you have a deep spirituality that I find fascinating and I saw how commited to it you where when you performed John And Rebecca's wedding...that blew me away.

You tolerate my presence even though you're infinitely cooler than I can even vaguely aspire to being?

Sincerely... you have a presence, and a sense of calmness and self-comprehension and acceptance that I envy more than I can put into words.

You are a warm caring person, who went out of his way to make this Colorado transplant feel welcome out here.

You're just plain nice; a great guy. Ditto what everyone else said.
