Secret Simon Vid No. 002


Watch the vid.


I've been in a flood. But not the kind where you drown.

I've never felt so much compassion from total strangers as I have in the last week. To everyone who has written emails and messages I thank you for your kindness. I never expected that one little glimpse of my silly mug would cause the stir that it did.

Peace,
Simon

I only know you from your blog, sketches, and video blogs but based on those I have to say that I think you are gentle, virtuous, and angelic. To be succinct, you are good.

Another great vid.

Question: where in FL are you? Maybe we could touch base ... I think we may have gone thru some similar things recently.

David said...

I am so humbled with your sweetness with the warmth of your gentleness. Thank you for doing what your doing, it makes me a better person. Thank you.

Pretty faces are a dime a dozen - it was the succulent orange that got my attention.

Weather and monkeys aside, don't you find that the 3-5am period is the best time of any day? The world has forgotten about us for a little while, leaving us alone with our thoughts and our essence.

If I could wrap you up in wool and hold you in my arms until you peacefully went to sleep, perhaps you might know a fraction of the love all of us have for you, because you have found the love within yourself to share with us.

With compassion ...

Here's my secret:

I see you.

Michael said...

I'm always smiling when I leave here. Thank you.

Came upon your blog last week through a link to your first video. I see myself and some of my friends in what you've written. Thanks for putting yourself out there and know that there are many others out there who can relate to what you're going through.

Michael said...

I hope that you don't mind but I've already linked you on my blog. You are definately a wonderous man Simon. I'm glad I found your site.

Do not ever under-estimate the guts/balls/gumption it took to do what you did, and how you handled the outcome.

Whatever you may think, you are so grounded and real. Whoever gets to be with you is lucky. You are such a f___ing catch.

David said...

I'm echo-ing what everyone else has said, but the lovely sweetness of you is like a subtle perfume. It doesn't hit you all at once but slowly fills your senses. You will be making some lucky guy, one who truly deserves you, very happy. Warning: He may be hard to find at first. Far too many are too shallow to appreciate someone as layered and introspective as you.

Your monkeys are lucky, too.

I've linked you on my site.

Hi Simon, I am new to your blog as well. I lived through all of your emotions 4 years ago and I am truly touched by how eloquently you put them into words. I am inspired to start my own blog thanks to you and your willingness to share your beautiful heart with us. I also have 2 children and I am looking forward to meeting someone else who has had this experience. I find a lot of the men I have met who are not fathers, just don't get me. Please keep doing what you are doing.

Hey Simon...I just listened to your video (it won't render on my computer...just a blank white screen) and your gentle voice soothed me.

I remember when you first started this blog...and your struggles you were having. I can't believe it's been a whole year!

You've always been in my thoughts, and am glad you're on the road to happiness.

-Chad :-)

xoxo

Thought I'd de-lurk.

You're just so beautiful, Simon.

I can't watch the videos (either). Quicktime tells me i'm missing something that isn't available.

:(

jason said...

Very nice.
You are great at this!

Larry said...

I wasn't able to watch this when you first posted it because I was at work. For some reason tonight I've been drifting through the blogosphere and I remembered this.

If every guy were like you I would be very happy :)

jjd said...

You're a pushover perhaps.. but only for good reasons. That's a bit different than just being a pushover. And from what I'm reading and seeing here, you are obviously taking control of your life in a very non-pushover way.

Great video, again. I think you could probably read to me at night and put me to sleep (in a good way) with your voice.

Yum. Wish I looked that hot that early in the morning.
