Things are good. It’s been a while since I could honestly say that. Not that there are no dark ominous clouds on the horizon. Things are good in a sort of rainy saturday type way. In light of all that’s happened this summer, things are looking up. Mostly I am encouraged that I have so many friends now. It’s incredible. I need to really be faithful in my friendships so they don’t slip away though. Being so far from everyone makes it easy to be complacent. Y’know something else? This is the first time in a long time in my life (maybe the first time ever) that I haven’t had this nagging desire to just disappear. To go off somewhere and never be heard of again. I don’t want that anymore! It’s so refreshing. I don’t know what did it. Maybe the realization that I really don’t want to be alone for the rest of my life. That would explain alot of things actually. Anyhow, my new passion in my friends. I have something to look forward to at the end of each week because I know I will be with like minded people who care whether I live or die. It’s amazing. And it helps so much.
