Say the word and you'll be free...

I'm confronted, yet again, with a blinking cursor.

It's frustrating. Maddening. The worst of it is that I know what I need to say and yet everytime I sit down and try to say it? I end up weeping over my keyboard. The last thing I need is to have to buy a new keyboard and I certainly don't need to be electrocuted (is that even possible? Probably not), so weeping over my keyboard seems like a bad plan all around.

Yet, here I am.

When I was a little girl I read a book about the eruption of Mount St. Helens. I remember, so clearly, the author speaking about living there.

Gray, ashy days.



That's sort of how I feel these days. Somehow cloudy.

I'm sorry. Whatever is weighing on you so heavily, I pray it's soon lifted. Take care, Steph.

Well... Mt St. Helens. Gray and ashy as it may be, was pretty awe-inspiring on every level.

Something to think about, as long as you're crying anyway.

I'm sorry you're sad, sorry life is LIKE this. love, Val

When I was a child I had a book called 'Begin at the Beginning'. I remember it still. Maybe you should begin there.
Hugs and love.

I hate my gray, ashy days. Because on those days, I hate the world.

I'm sorry, hon. Hope you come out of the gray soon.

I was home from school sick the day St. Helen's blew. I stood out in the yard, the sky dark, ash raining down, thinking "this is the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me". I hope your ash raining down turns into an amazing thing.
