    Letting Peter Go

    In my first post to this group I described how I hated my brother Peter, next youngest after myself.  I told how that hatred had persisted, even twenty years after Peter's death.  Well, something about what I wrote, or something about the sympathetic comments I received...

    I learnt that it is SO, so important to just "take the plunge," take risks (healthy risks),and follow whatever your heart desires. Otherwise, guaranteed you'll regret it later on.
