Greetings from Lake Munmorah, Australia
« on: February 11, 2010, 09:16:35 AM »
Hi All.  I'm popping in after a lengthy break, and it looks like it'll take a couple of days of reading in order to to catch up! ...the amount of new posts and members is amazing  :D

I won't bore you with all the details but essentially I've taken some time out, got married, had a baby, moved house/location - and consequently learnt a lot about life  :o

The cool thing is that while I've been experiencing these things, it's been the 'primal philosophy' that has kept my feet on the ground at all times.  The last few months have been totally about the inner self rather than physical outer-self, and for me; the caveman way of life is more relevant than ever.

As a new parent and husband I've been confronted and challenged by many of today's cultural beliefs about parenting/marriage - but by meditating on what primal man is I've been able to find a touchstone upon which to grasp a strong common sense approach.

Anyhow, it's good to be dropping in again.  And I am totally awed by the people that are here; the forum seems to attract amazingly good people.

One final note; Tony B has been incredible in looking after the forum, it's been a labour of love and his work has helped keep this website alive... he's kept the spammers away and selflessly reached out to many people in need.  I'm lost for words... and incredibly humbled.

FYI this is a non-profit website, there are no ads or affiliated products, nothing here is for sale nor are any donations asked for... and I guess this is a key reason for having such wonderful folks in the community like Tony and the countless others who've respectfully shared their journey with others.

Matt,

Welcome back!  Thank you also for the kind words... I'm flattered by them, and honored to have the opportunity to give a little something back to a friend and a community that has so truly enriched my life.  We've got some great new members here, and the thoughts and ideas are really flowing!

Congratulations again on all of the wonderful happenings of your past year.   :)
