By request, here's a picture of the shirt I mentioned with NYC train lines on it! It's just Manhattan, but that's where I spent most of the brief periods I was in the city. Makes me miss the place.


NYC Transit Shirt





Danae has begun seeing a therapist, hoping to work through some really difficult stuff that's been affecting her life for over a decade. She asked me to go through her LJ from around that time and find some writing that would be a good place for the therapist to start in understanding it all. She started looking at them herself, but it's really hard for her. I'm really glad that I've been doing so well in the past week; she had a couple of days where I comforted her through bouts of tears. We're both pretty broken in our own ways, she and I.

They are our own ways, but they are also oddly similar ones in some respects. After a few hours of reading, I understand more thoroughly than I did the situation she was in. While our mutual issues have often not played well together, I also feel very strongly that they can contribute to a deep understanding of each other, and may make us really well suited to help each other process and overcome then. She's been supportive to an awe-inspiring extent to me, and I hope that me being so for her will help her pursue the life she wants. I hope both of us will be able to do that, sooner or later. Hopefully sooner; we've both been waiting for parts of that life for a very long time.

I cannot thank you enough for reading through that stuff for me.

And I do think we can do a lot to help each other. I love you.

Now that's a cool shirt. :-)

It's a great relationship when you can not only help each other by leveraging your individual strengths, but help each other work on your individual weaknesses. Teamwork!

If you're a city person, it's Mecca. I would take an opportunity to live there without a second thought. There's just so much!

I have a version of that shirt, but the print doesn't go up to the shoulders like yours. I want yours now!

I love shirts with a print beyond the chest. They must be more expensive to make or something because I see very few of them, but one of my other favorite shirts has a print that even covers the collar.

Most screen printing presses only cover a rectangular area, it seems:

I love that shirt!

On Christmas eve, I rode the green line from your chest up to your neck! ;-)

[Edited]: Actually I started at Penn Station on your right side, went north to your right nipple on the red line, then east to your sternum on the lavender line before I took the green line north to your neck.

You always speak with love and fondness for Danae; I know she's been a support for you, and I'm glad you can be that for her, too. (And your shirt is excellent.)

I'm so grateful for her presence, and glad to be able to repay some of what she's done for me.

And thanks!
