    times (including as recently as when I entered this diary!).  Then I go back to not being able to give up.

    In fact, seeing as how I am in the middle of a "mid-life adventure" (house in foreclosure, lost my business along with it, living at my sisters trying to find a job with benefits and a liveable wage), I have been inspired by many comments here.

    I have a list of books to read, a number of constructive ideas I am saving (which largely boil down to "APPEAL TO EMOTIONS") AND I am going to investigate doing some journalism!

    I have always been a decent writer - now I need to find out how to knock out pieces that not only can appeal to those emotions, wield open the cracks in the crazy but get published!

    I know, sounds a little crazy itself, and the part-time jobs I have, studying to test for a better job, family obligations, wrapping up house stuff, etc. don't leave me as much freedom to explore this other than very slowly and randomly, but it is my bit of hope infusion for the day.

    As to moving to another country, I've had that fleeting thought in the past but just a few days ago realized it had become a serious option and that in itself was depressing.  I am of the nature to stand and fight, and plan to do so!  The e-mails, conversations, etc. are scary - which just means that the time to stand up and fight is NOW.  Enough already.

    Hope you too can find some hope and will rejoin the fight.
