moosehaps occurred to me when I read about an unfortunate mishap (non-lethal) involving a moose and a vehicle at a road crossing. Incidentally, have we not a single "Brooke" or "Brook" babbling on this board?!
As the light of day grows shorter, I'm going to be retiring to the shadows (which sounds more glamorous than "hanging all day without getting dressed" because I'm thinking deep thoughts) for some very overdue introspection and consideration of ideas gleaned from you, pixygoth and the many thoughtful contributors on this board.
Have you ever read about a mythic character named Ereshkigal, who inflicted some very serious PMDD acting out onto those around her, until she decided to really take a look at herself? She had to go underground, (to hell, you might say), physically and psychologically, before she could recognize her own hand in her troubles. I must do as E.
I sense your strength of purpose in how you're undertaking to make a new life for yourself, and am similarly inspired to get busy reconstructing my own.
I will keep you and all who babble here in my heart.
