    "I'm alive"

    Someone precious in my life said those words to me just recently.  It really can be as simple as that, at times.

    Nancy, keep in your good (mental) place, keep that happiness as much as you can.

    i try everyday hedonist. And after losing my brother and sister at an age when they should still be here, I have to figure I am here for a reason and I'm being put through the wringer to be ready to handle anything.  I love your posts. I'm alive is sometimes just good enough. And while I am, I get to keep trying and making mistakes and learning. If I am feeling emotions, even if they suck, it means I'm a breathing human being. 

    Won't let the darkness swallow me; won't let the light escape from me! Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

    I have nothing on my mind by choice (it's all pushed behind the gate that lets me be).  That should hold for a bit.

    So happy I came into this thread. In just the two pages I read I have seen names i have known since i joined 4 1/2 years ago. I haven't been on much, but that is true of all sites and places since my diagnosis. When I do come here, it's so nice to see how people are - or just to see a known avatar of a person I have cyber affection for.

    So happy for you brianlux - that must be such an accomplished feeling!!

    Congratulations northerndragon - being an Aunt is a wonderful thing. 

    jnimhaoileion - I would be in a panic in the same situation. Sounds like a great idea, then when the time comes to do so you think 'what the hell?'. I admire you for stepping out of your comfort zone to meet people that you know only through this type of communication. In other places of the internet I have made some life long friends. I also have met people that I realized that I was just not clicking with. You can always meet them and if it feels weird - go your own way. Good luck!!!!

    I see you hedonist and PJ_Soul and Pap (one of my first 'friends' in the rate the song thread!!! Hope you are well!) and Annafalk  and smallest ocean and cuddly Hobbes. You all put a smile on my face. Especially the names i forgot to include. 
    Hey Nancy! It's always great to have you back here! :smile: I hope everything's fine for you these days!
    Ooh, yeah! All right!

    The peace of mind knowing a plumber removed my old sink  and installed a new kitchen sink and  faucet today. Two hours.  To me that says a lot as a DIY self handyman.  Twice this year I've called upon a plumber because I am done convincing myself that I am an expert from watching You tube videos.  
    Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both ideas are overwhelming. AE

    ^ Sometimes that is the way to go. My ex tried to repair our running toilet for two years. He'd "fix" one thing and then something else would break. We spent more money on repairing it ourselves then if we had just hired a professional. Glad you have a new sink and a little peace of mind to boot.

    On my mind right now is a sadness so deep that i can't think or feel enough of passionately expressed poetry.

    The purity, the kindness, of some people never fails to floor and bring me humility - and gratitude.

    Thank you to those who got me through a recent rough ride.

    I hope you know how utterly beautiful you are to me :)

    I'm thinking about how proud I am of my sons, and how they have turned out to be the best sort of young men -- intelligent, kind, compassionate, generous, and true to themselves. The fact that they are explicitly appreciative of the support my husband and I have provided over the years -- at an age (college!) when many young people can't be bothered to talk to their parents -- is the icing on the cake. 
    All those who seek to destroy the liberties of a democratic nation ought to know that war is the surest and shortest means to accomplish it.

    This is fantastic, and reminds me of my niece and nephew (mid and early-20's, respectively), with whom I spent a bit of time yesterday.

    Cheers to you and your husband (as well as to my sister and BIL).

    Interview tomorrow. Boy, do I want this one. I took videos of me answering different questions. After reviewing it I decided to add a little more inflection in my answers so that I don't sound like a machine. I'm looking forward to this interview!

    I am ready for Irma to dissipate into the ether. We got some pretty good wind and a lot of rain today (will continue on until probably midnight or so). However, I'm in the dreaded right front quadrant so there's a good possibility of tornados occurring. I know there were a few in the Charleston area.

    All that said, prayers and good thoughts go out to those in Florida. The footage I saw from Naples was truly disastrous.
