Luca Lazzari

Have not seen any posts from Luca for quite some time. Hope he's doing well and just taking a break from the bright sun and heat.

Friends, here I am!
Thanks for your concern, I'm really under pressure, from earthquakes, relatives' illnesses, being unemployed and trying to find a way out in the worst period since I was born.
But aside from these lesser troubles, everything is going well

Because I'm a tough piece of meat, never surrender, and hope God is on my side (well, He's keeping me alive, so it's up to me to make something useful of this precious gift, I suppose...).

A big hug to everyone and thanks again for your enduring support and concern

Ciao

Luca, glad to hear from you! You have been in my thoughts and prayers a lot.

Those sure aren't "lesser troubles" but it is good to see that you can think of it that way and be grateful for being here to fight them off.

Check in when you can, but just know you are loved here by many.

Hi Luca,

Glad you dropped in to let us know that you are still around. Sometimes dropping in is the best medicine when faced with so many difficulties. My thoughts are with you and want you to remember, that this too shall pass and there are loads of folks here who can empathize with the challenges you are facing. And, they are pretty good listeners, too!

luca,
bolas, harry, tattrat and i have set up an allied relief mission to help you in your time of need.

shipments of blonde wigs, feather boas, and size 14 shoes should be air dropped in to your location very soon.

we all pitched in from our own closets, so it's all quality stuff.

Can't wait!!! Even if I'm quitting with blonde wigs, going for some beautiful red, curly one...

Luca;

As you said, you are made from stern stuff. And as you believe in the same supreme being that I do, then you know that all challenges in life are a blessing, that they teach us to grow beyond what we are, and to make us better. There is a plan, and that is to teach us to be the best we can be. You are in my prayers. Count on your belief, and those you trust and love to get you through this. We all go through periods that seem almost overwhelming. And then we get through them, and look back to see what we learned from them.

I don't need to worry for you. You are a survivor, like me, and a whole lot of others around here.

Oh, and I'm turning on my most powerful fan, to blow some great Lake Superior air you way. I'd send water, except that I've made a pact with myself to horde the big lake all to myself. Ahhhhahahaha.

Seeeeeya; Chief Longwind of the North
