I did not find this movie, "Seabiscuit," as hopeful or promising, or as uplifting as everyone who's seen it has exclaimed. I know horses. I've owned a number of race horses. The relationship between jockey "Red" (forgot the last name already) and Seabiscuit was portrayed as carefully as one might in a Hollywood rendition (without slipping into the realms of sap or unbelievability) .... It is a very real, powerful, and dynamic relationship to heal a broken horse ... to become at one, through your voice, hands, weight, legs, seat, movement, etc. ... through your very presence -- to bring a horse, especially a bruised and broken horse -- into balance and trust. It's quite remarkable. I hope I'll be able to experience it again one day.

Of course, the movie was more about relationships -- and it's a lovely film .... Tobey Maguire, Jeff Bridges, Chris Cooper, William H. Macy ... I love them all -- but I found "Adaptations" (Chris Cooper won an Acadamy Award for Best Supporting Actor) much more stirring -- and, in general -- wounded and grieving myself, I'm not much able to comment on anything other than my own sad condition.

Jimi -- I am grateful and touched to have not one, but two (!) notes from you. Thank you very much. I've printed these out to save and reread, as I do many of the messages I've received. I continue to ask for guidance, healing, relief and release -- while at the same time, praying for Paul's well-being, wondering how much time he has (and mentally preparing for his funeral).

This is a man who has not chosen life, and ... it's just too sad. Such a sad commentary on the human condition.

The movie resulted in my missing a meeting, but I'm going to hang up and call my sponsor -- and I'm going to work, as best as I'm able, to rise to the occasion of being the best mother I can be ... and ... to just do and be the best I can ... to change those things I can (to accept those things I can't) ... and to carry on.

Again, my gratitude to all who have followed this sad journey ... and my dearest, deepest thanks to those who have shared so much of their hearts. Habby, Fallsfall, Mercury, Dena, Ray, Jimi ... Your presence brings honor to God's work on this planet, and I am ever indebted to your assistance in sending Light my way.

XXX, Temmie
