Thanks to everyone looking for something positive. Feel free to post your inspirations or things that keep you going (if even for a little while). Please - no negs here, we've got an entire forum available for everything that hurts, ails, mystifies us. (I'll check out the other site as well - I've just found that most of us seem to hang around this corner). I love this, even though it was written about a solitary hike into nature it also seems to apply to my condition.. "At first I experienced mostly its strangeness. I remember the curious uneasiness I would feel, then, when I went any distance off the trails. It was not that I was lost. But the lay of the land was strange to me and when I cast myself loose in it, certain as I might be of where I was, I would begin to feel lost. Sometimes my return to the trail would partake somewhat of the nature of a retreat, the Unknown having surrounded me on three sides and begun to close in. (Wendell Berry - 'The Journey's End) I'm thinking a lot of 9/11 today. Where and what it was like last year. I want to weep because nothing in my experience was so overwhelming, yet so enriching: because life comes with no guarantees I now try to find something each day to enjoy. Anyone else experience positive changes since 9/11? Keep smiling - your friends will think you've over-medicated.
