  •  Cheers to incrementalism (13+ / 0-)

    Otherwise known as "trudging the road of happy destiny".  Still working my way out of my emotional/physical paper bag.  But I feel so much better, emotionally, than I did a month ago, and so much better, physically, than I did two months ago.

    The amend I made to my estranged friend, however half-assed it seemed at the time, truncated by time concerns, had made a big difference for me.  I know that I sincerely did everything I could to make her whole.  Her amend to me was more an apology than a true amend, but even that has freed me from the shame I was feeling.  I still miss her terribly, but have let go of trying to reconstitute what was, essentially, a one-sided friendship in the first place.  The whole situation goaded me to move forward spiritually, and I feel like the man I know I was all along.

    So far as my health, I still feel good.  Had an emotional "relapse" with my ex, when she grabbed my arm while I was driving, afraid that I was going to have an accident.  Of course, grabbing my arm almost caused one, and I yelled at her.  Her passenger-driving is tiresome, especially given how long I've been driving, and how little she has driven (I taught her how to drive).  But the 'righteous' anger I feel when she does that is more dangerous to me than her fear of an accident.  

    Time to buy a car.  I have started using the Zipcar so much that it is less economical than it was.  It actually makes sense to buy a car now.  I am doing a lot more driving than I was, related to connecting with healthy people and places, and it would make it easier to leave my boy at his mom's more often, which she now has started to desire.

    Rest in peace to Abraham Lincoln, who succumbed to his bullet wound on this date in 1865:

    Happy birthday to Domenico Gabrielli:
