I am having a early evening - after a day of alot of progress in terms of work - being done -

and a first house viewing came to the condo -

I spent the rest of the day - thinking - taking care of myself in a few caring ways -

meeting up with the realtor -

and now - for the last couple of hours - I have been lying in bed - sleeping on and off - hearing the birds chirp and the sun is going down -

I feel so young -

at the mercy of life -

and maybe - just not in touch with my strengths at all -

and feel those are false anyway - and this is the true - mark -

these are all those feelings maybe of fatigue from the work done and all experienced lately -

I am glad I still feel 'little'

I am learning too - to be brave enough to explore some pragmatic thinking -

now that I do not have some frightful peopel screaming and making me live
unable to think -

Mark,

We can't be strong all the time; we all feel vulnerable and "little" from time to time. And perhaps that's a healthy thing; it allows us to consider and acknowledge our limitations. What's very positive here is that you are using this as a constructive opportunity: as you say, "to be brave enough to explore some pragmatic thinking".

Sounds good to me!

Much love,
Larry

Thanks guys.

I do wish I had you all around me here - but in essence - I do !

Thanks very much.


A lot of ideas floating about. I guess I will just keep going with stuff.
