Another Spectrum

Personal ramblings and rants of a somewhat twisted mind

Leaving the world a better place.

3 Comments

I became part of the blogosphere long before I considered starting my own blog. One of the first people I got to know was Paul Curran. He popped up on many of the blogs I followed and his comments were a breath of fresh air. Here was someone that had ideas and thoughts that were open ended. If there was one thing consistent with Paul it was that he was not dogmatic. Yes, he had is opinions and beliefs, but he was not closed to alternatives and appreciated that differences didn’t mean being wrong.

Paul was one of two people that encouraged me to start this blog, and has made thoughtful and interesting comments here from the start. In fact he has been the most prolific commenter here on Another Spectrum.He had an amazingly positive view of life despite the hardships he had to endure. I’d be very surprised if anyone who met Paul, in the real or virtual worlds, were not better off for doing so. The world is a better place for having been graced with his presence.

Now I learn here that we will hear no more from Paul. Although he will be missed, he will not be forgotten.

  1. He will be greatly missed. What a treasure Paul was, his kindness, his wisdom, the way he befriended so many people.

    He once asked me to be kind to you Barry, and to look after you. I thought that was very sweet. So while you and I are often on opposite ends of many things, I remember Paul’s words and I take them to heart.

  2. A diamond. He really did touch and nurture those whose path he crossed.
