So sometimes I get carried away with the sunshine and roses. And sometimes, life feels like that. And then sometimes, it doesn’t. Demons came out yesterday, and what began so well did not end so well. Isn’t that life? You think you’re out of the woods. But you’re not.


A profound unmitigated loneliness is the only truth of life. -R.K. Narayan, novelist (10 Oct 1906-2001)

    Thanks, Theresa. Ah, the roller coaster of life – and I know that's a cliché. But I'm on the way up again.
