Starting Over

I am starting over. I haven't been at the asylum very much. Oh, go ahead and say it ... I haven't been here at all. But whatever, lets just wipe the blog slate clean and start over, shall we?

Things I learned while I was away:
  • Nietzsche was right, what doesn't kill us makes us stronger, even if dying seems like the easier alternative.
  • Losing a loved one completely changes you forever, doesn't matter who it is, or what your relationship was, you will never be the same.
  • Laughter , a sense of humor, the only armor you really need.
  • I know some seriously fabulously awesome people, who love me and show it, how groovy is that?
  • It takes a lot of courage to have the freedom to be me, and I am not always courageous.
  • Don't ever decide to change your hair color while sad, depressed or grieving.
  • Being and/or feeling crazy isn't always a bad thing.
  • I'm still standing, looking like a true survivor. (feel free to do your best Elton John impression here)
  • I missed writing, so perhaps I am back.
  • Been keeping tabs on all you huckleberries, expect more obvious visits.

Ha-I like the one about the hair color. but you can always dye it back!

Funny, I just read something about that quote from Nietzsche and it was that person's opinion that N was wrong. It might have been in a novel I was reading.

I'm having a hard time being philosophical, so I'll jsut say I'm glad to have you back, even if it's only for this one visit and another year goes by.

Pamela, Ye of little faith visit a year is sort of like a pilgrimage. : )

I hope you will be moved to write here more often. I've missed you but never gave up hope. Welcome back, Eslocura!

Es, I just read Heartinsanfran's post and your comment. I'm so sorry for your loss too. I can't even imagine, and I hope never to find out. :-( All my best.
