thank you serafina. i needed that interjection of light just now. i'm basically a pessimist - they enjoy themselves more. if they are right about a negative outcome, they can pat themselves on the back. if they are wrong, they can say that this was a one-time exception and take heart in there being SOME good in people.
maybe that light at the end of my tunnel isn't really an on-coming train? (maybe it's only a mac truck? )
wwishing you and everyone in HW a happy solstice!
That light at the end of he tunnel? It's an on-coming train.
