But at bottom, I'm most obligated to do this for myself, isn't that right?
Yes, that's absolutely right. But if you sense that you're giving up on yourself or losing hope then I would ask you to look outside yourself and depend on the strength and guidance of others. Sometimes a ship that is floundering in raging, storm-tossed seas needs a beacon of light to guide it in to safe harbor.
Sounds very poetic, philosophical.. . .Hopefully, it won't get to that--where I start losing hope.
Today, I actually did my packing and got a few misc. other things done. My close friend/colleague, Robin, (who actually lives nearby with a Thai girlfriend), invited me over for dinner tonight, so at least I don't have to go through the hassle of dinner by msyelf. He said he's going to give me a copy of a recent Time magazine featuring articles on mind affecting body.
(I think it's the same one I saw on-line and actually downloaded one article from it.) Anyway, maybe I mentioned his name before. He has survived depression that brought him to hospitalization, so he has always emphathized. Long story here--won't bore you with it.
> Please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you as you make your journey.
thanks for everything you've done and said. I pray that our future communications will be about things that are good or improving.
