> You probably know, or I've said it before, that I've never gone to university or had any formal education beyond high school.

I didn't know that.

> My therapist was born, raised, and trained in California. There are probably as many therapists there as lawyers, which is a good thing. Keeps those with the license on the cutting edge, with an open mind, and my T is good at reading non verbal signals.

Yes. My last therapist moved to Sydney from New York. I thought he was very good - partly because he read broadly and developed his views over time. Open mind, as you say.

> But university and that experience; I missed out on a lot, but I got to do a lot of writing, reading, and observing on my own. I don't think I would have survived the experience.

Yes.

If you could have gone to University... Or you could go now... What would you study? It doesn't have to be University, actually... If you could learn about anything at all... Painting... A Musical Instrument... Photography... Lawn Bowls... Birding... Anything at all...

Maybe something you were interested in as a kid where someone told you it was a waste of time or you would never be any good... Or perhaps something a bit later or more recent where you maybe told that to yourself...

I don't know what I'd do without my enthusiasms. Well... Actually, yes, I do. I get depressed. Just want things to end / go away. Engage in things to pass the time like mindless computer games...
