in the fade


  1. feeling good about things

    I feel good about everything right now. The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of good fortune for me, like everything I’ve been working at since high school is finally paying off and at the ripe young age of 50 I am finally realizing some life dreams. 

    Todd leaves for China tomorrow. He’ll be gone nine days. I have so much to do, so much going on between writing and Sacks for Sandy (and meeting up with people two of those days, look at me being social!), that I won’t even have time to whine about him being gone.

    Oh, of course I will whine. Just not as much as usual. 

    This time last year I had a decidedly “Everything sucks and nothing will ever be good again” attitude going on. What a difference a year makes. I am so hopeful for the future, so happy with the present and this whole Sacks for Sandy awesomeness is making me feel that joy to the world, good will toward men thing that’s been missing from my holiday seasons of late. 

    Perseverance. Patience. Strength. Good friends. Loved ones who encourage me. An amazing partner. The kindness of strangers. Small glimpses of success. Medication. The things that get me through. And keep me going.
