Secret Simon Vid No. 001

Guess what? The blog is one year old today.

Guess who?

It's just me and an orange tree. Watch the vid.


Thank you Willing Warrior, sometimes all one needs is the right push.

Peace,
Simon

I'd raise a glass of wine... or even a cup of coffee... but I've restricted myself from both. So I'm raising a cup of tea to "beginnings."

I certainly am glad to have run into your blog.

David In Denver said...

To new beginnings, indeed! Congratulations!

Joseph said...

Happy birthday, Simon. It was a good vidcast.

Brian said...

Brave beyond words, my friend.

Cliché Guy said...

Tuna Girl said...

Happy Birthday, Secret Simon. This is weird but your picture is exactly how I pictured you...ok not exactly...but the general look.

David said...

Now I know what distilled beauty looks like. Something so pure, you feel clean after seeing it.

Thank you and god bless.

Congratulations on your blogoversary, but more important, thank you for the video. It was raw and real. It took real courage.

Keep it up!

I was only recently introducted to your blog by the WW but, wow!#

Lots to say and now all to tools to say it with.

Kudos to you man. That was FANtastic. Kudos. I commend your bravery and skill.

You should film in Canada. You could talk for hours and hear, what? A moose?

Cheers mate.

mark said...

You took a big step. I've been reading you almost since the beginning and have seen you go through so many changes. Congrats babe.

Jeff said...

This is my first visit, and what a lovely introduction. Happy anniversary.

Scott E D said...

Happy Anniversary, Congrats on coming out.

Thank you for reminding me how important hope is.

You made my day.

Atari_Age said...

My first visit here and I think I am gonna cry. Is that ok?

I could hear it in your voice, I could see it in your face. This is a supremely important moment for you.

Good for you, man.

jjd said...

hmm.. I tried to watch this at home last night and it wouldn't work so here I am at work, huddled up, finally getting the opportunity to see it and I am not in a teeny bit disappointed. It was beautiful, and I'm pleased I got to see it. I think you did a wonderful job. My first visit too, but I'll certainly be back.

Mike said...

Finally out from under the cold, but now I'm on somebody else's dialup for the rest of the week! So no video viewing...ah well. I can still say Happy Anniversary...and congratulate you for taking another big step out. Hugs!

Seeker Onos said...

wow... I am floored. That takes incredible guts to do what you did.

I can't say that I would be able to do the same, if I were in that situation... but well done.

Chef Boyardee said...

Amazing. Really moving Simon. I am a first-timer too!!

Joe G. said...

Wow... that was one of the most heart-felt and revealing posts I've ever read in recent memory... I'm glad that you were able to share that bit of yourself with us... thank you my friend. Oh and thank you for all your comments and late night talk sessions as well...you're really a special guy, I hope you know that :).

Stephanie said...

What we choose to share with others is our gift to them. You've given the ultimate gift of yourself to us, but more importantly, you've given the ultimate gift to yourself.

May we all have the chance to begin again with our truth. Thank you.

Bon Vivant said...

Fantastic video! I have read your blog for the past year and it was your blog that made me start blogging. I actually think I linked to you in my first posting ever. Your stories and your sketches give my day a good start (Since I'm in Europe I usually read you in the morning...)
