This post will sound strange and cryptic to all but one person. So, please excuse me here; I feel this note is quite necessary.
Dear Friend, I read your note over and over again this morning, and I am so grateful for your words. Unfortunately, I cannot reply to “comments” unless I approve them. Upon their approval, they would then become visible for all to see, but I want to respect your anonymity.
I feel a need to thank you and to respond. If you are willing to continue this dialogue, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
