    My best friend almost lost his life today.

    But he was rescued at sea, and he is alive. His boat is gone. I am glad I will not be giving an Eulogy; but instead a warm embrace.

    that I will never look back on my younger days and wish I was there again. I'm not going to get old and think back to the good old days. I'm sort of glad, in a weird way, that I am going through a lot of horrible stuff right now. I'm just getting it all over with. When I am old...

    isn't so bad, when I realize how pointless it is to be sad. Life is such a precious and fragile gift, and I didn't realize fully until the effects of my mistakes had blossomed into problems of their own. Silly, when you're young and the reject advice from those who have been...

    Gratefulness Is a Way to Get High
