Welcome back!

I’m at work, and can’t break away to read what looks like 2 (or 3?) new chapters (walking across the site on my phone right now!), but man... what a relief to see you back!

Edit: Wow! Just...wow! Great to have you posting again TB, and my sincere condolences on the loss of your father. I lost mine to a rather nasty cancer so long ago, the pain is now just a dull memory, but am reminded of him every time I look at my son...uncanny resemblance.

I can’t imagine what you and your wife are going through but if there’s anything I can do, or you just need to vent, please drop me a PM. Like Halfapint mentioned, your story lines and the ideas they bring forth has gotten me through a lot of hard times, physical recovery, and even plain old boredom... We’re here for you too.

Regardless...it’s a true privilege to get another glimpse or three through windows you’ve opened into this dark and beautiful world you’ve created.

Thanks again for the Moar!

...now where’s the next chapter? :lol:

Thanks for the most awesome updates, TB, and it's great to have you back, albeit can fully understand the prolonged absence. My dad died of leukemia a few years ago, and I went through my own "dark night of the soul" in the aftermath. Being there for your wife is the most important thing now, but am grateful the creative juices are still flowing.

Welcome back Tinderbox!

I much appreciate the update, you really are a great writer.

I am sorry to hear about the difficulties you have been facing. Life has its ups and has it downs. I hope that you are able to stay string.
I wish that I could offer some words of comfort, but these are things that we will have to face over our lifetimes.

Things will get better! and always appreciate what you have, while you have it!

Bumping because it needs to be done.

It's getting dark and cold up here in the Arctic. Perfect time to start breaking out some good fiction next to my wood stove.

If only a Tinderbox could show up to keep me warm..... :awesome:

I've been a lurker for a while now and just finished reading the story after having to stop for a while and then restart from the beginning. I just want to say thank you for such an amazing piece of art that you've created TB. I had thought about posting in the past but after reading your last update I just really want to say that I truly hope the best for you and your family. I know you don't know me but I'm always here for anyone that wants to talk or needs anything. Best wishes.

I second these thoughts. If anyone knows TB please give him a call, a text, a FB pm or send carrier pigeons his way. Just make sure he is alive, well, and has enough fingers to type!

I spoke yesterday with him through PM, he’s ok but going through some very challenging times to say the least. He hopes and plans on finishing it though.

Wish him out best and I know I would, and others I’m sure would as well, help out if need be. Some people are just stubborn and won’t take help even if it’s needed.

I gave him my email and phone number in case he just needs to talk, I told him we’re all thinking of him and hope he’s doing ok. Not much anyone can help him with though with what he’s going through except some prayers and well wishes.

Thanks for the update on him. TB, if you read this, just know I am thinking and praying for you.
