I am incredibly sad because a dear friend e-mailed me to say her darling husband has an aggressive cancer. He is in his fifties.
I am sad because young adults can’t find jobs. There’s even competition for unpaid internships.
I am sad because we don’t have enough time to get together with our families as often as we’d like…or should.
I am sad because we pay homage to a world of untalented, unappealing people whom we’ve annointed celebrities.
I am sad because we elect more and more greedy, big mouth, know-it-all people to represent us in our government.
I am sad because it’s getting harder and harder to take it easy.
I am sad because our medical system is falling apart before our very eyes.
I am happy to be alive.
I am happy to have a loyal, caring family and friends.
I am happy to have the intelligence to handle difficult situations, the perserverance and energy to keep striving and the health to stay around another day.
And I am happy to have a family of new friends across the country with whom to share passions, wisdom and all the things we love.
TO ALL MY FOF FRIENDS. YOU MAKE ME INCREDIBLY HAPPY.
