I’m not good at asking for help. In fact, if I can avoid asking for help when I *really* need it, I will do so at all costs. I’m not talking about “hey, would you please carry this into the house for me?” help. I’m talking about “there’s something going on and it’s difficult, and I need something. Please.” kind of help.

Well, I need help.

But actually I don’t. Someone else does. But I’m asking you to help me help someone else. There’s this family I know, and they’re going through darkness.


If you believe in prayer, please pray.

If you believe in mojo, please send good mojo to them.

If you believe in magic, please weave good energy.

If you believe in nothing, please think good thoughts.

If you believe in the flying spaghetti monster, please send meatballs (I say this, tongue in cheek, not to make light of the situation, but because I want to be inclusive. I know some of you are pastafarians).

I want it all to go away for the family, but I want it to end as well as it can. I want it to be right. I want their path illuminated (preferably in gold leaf, but right now, I’ll settle for a the light of a match).

Thank you.

    I’m sorry to read this, cenobyte. I’ll send good thoughts your way and hope that today is a better day for you and yours.

    cenobyte, it’s difficult to send effective energy with so little info about the nature of the issues at hand. I can send lovingkindness, which is always good, but if it’s specific healing energy that is required, well, then I need more info. Anyway, you have my co-ordinates, so if you’re comfortable sending more info in a different way, please do.B-)

    I’ve finally got some good energy to send (it’s been a loooong autumn) – I’ll send good vibes to you and can you pass it on to them? I wish them strength, peace and CASH.

    I’m in there with Parm. If there is anything concrete I can do, I’d be happy to help. We don’t have an awful lot in our family, but what we’ve got more than a lot of people, and we are more than willing to do what we can for anyone else out there who needs a hand.

    Hm, I’m not on the list.That being said, are you sure there isn’t something more concrete that can be done? I suppose not, or you probably would have said. Food? Clothing? A shoulder to cry on? Unless it turns out I know them too, I probably can’t help with the last, but y’know.

    I am more than willing to offer meatballs, but I likewise note that I have two noodles that can do some heavy lifting of some kind, should that possibly help.

i make squee noises when you tell me stuff.
