It appears that
the second most popular post on this blog
I wrote it about a particular chain letter,
well, really it was a chain e-mail,
that I received about a year ago.
That chain e-mail was called
"My Room of Eight."
(I note that a couple female bloggers have written about that same message now.
For instance, Boston Margy
Well, wouldn't you know it?
I got the same chain e-mail again.
What goes around comes around, eh?
Anyway, it has been abbreviated. I like this new version. It goes like this:
My Table of 8 > I am supposed to pick 8 women who have touched my life > and whom I think might participate. Please send this back to me. > Remember to just read the quotation. That's all you have to do. There > is nothing attached. Just send this to eight women and let me know what > happens on the fourth day. Sorry you have to forward the message, but > try not to break this, please. > > > Quote: > "May today there be peace within. May you trust that > you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the > infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. > May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that > has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way > you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul > the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and > every one of us." > > > Now, send this to 8 women or more within the next 5
> minutes. And remember to send this back. I count as 1. You'll see why.

If you read my earlier post,
you'll see why I think it's really cool
that this little message is still
( constable )
So I again chose my room of eight.
I chose them from the women I know closely,
and the women who I would like to have know
that I write this blog.
You see, not many people know
who writes this blog.
And that's just fine.
And I included a link to my earlier entry,
and asked them to read it,
and send it on.
This is the message I sent to them:
"This is kind of goofy. About a year ago, I got a chain letter just like theone below. And now I'm getting it again. After receiving the first, I wrotesomething about it. I'm attaching a link to what I wrote. Yes, I wrote itunder another name. http://makropulos.blogspot.com/2010/06/hopefulness-of-chain-letter.htmlOr you can read it and send it on. Include my link, if you want to. Andknow, please, that you are in my room of eight."Pass it on.Pass it on.
