Ah, that's an idea. I was going to make play clay from flour and salt and oil and water.

Sure you can help! The wall represents my therapy journey. I'm trying to figure out how tall it is, whether it has dropoffs on both sides (or is it a wall holding up a hill?). I do know that it is hard to keep my balance. One thing I do with metaphors that I use is try to see how I can change things within the metaphor to figure out how that would change things in life. For instance, I'm afraid I'll fall off if I walk on the wall, so I can sit down and wait for my therapist to come back - this translates into not pushing myself while he is on vacation. You bring up an interesting change - is there someway that I can make the wall wider, so it is easier to walk on (even temporarily)? I'll have to think about that.

> > You can put that stuff away in a strong box until she comes back. You don't have to do hard therapy work while she's away - you sort of get a therapy vacation.
> ***Thats a good thought. In a box, a very strong box. When it tries to come out toughie will come and stuff it back in. Ha!!!
Put a strong lock on the box so it can't open up.
> ****I can sit too. For awhile. But then I get bored and have to go and look for bugs cuz I love bugs. I can show them to you. Are you scared of bugs, cuz I won't show them to you if you are.

I like bugs a lot. My previous career was a software engineer - my specialty was fixing bugs, so I had all sorts of plastic bugs in my office. I think bugs are facinating.

Sugar is great, isn't it?

I'm glad to have you with me at Camp Comfort. It is nice to have company.
