...hope spings eternal
Sounds like yer readin all the right stuff.
Somehow infusing the insights of those blessed communicators with our addled brains gives us a much wider base on which to stand which makes it much harder for the occasional ill wind to knock us over.
When all the material stuff fails us (meds, ice,O2,fungus, blue cheeze...et al)...those words of wisdom...planted...watered and nurtured...inside us...remain the only dance there is...the thread that keeps us standing.
There is a line...which we approach with our rational mind raging "Why?...How?...When?"...and no answers come.
For those without support this line is cliffs edge...for those with support...crossing it is the passage to trancendent acceptance. All the words of those who love you and the sages you sat at the feet of become one's only lifeline.
We live and thrive...thumbing our nose at grim reaper.
My lifelines are planted deep....philosophers, theologions, medicine men and wise bums on the street's words hold me up when all my strength is gone.
Where was I?
This site...with it's "I'm not alone anymore" credo...warm fuzzies...trite homilies...small talk..."I just called to say I love you" moments makes me wanna puke sometimes...but when all the scientific facts and advice prove useless...they are the bridge cross that "line"...
Raise the level of hope.
Those who know Terry...know he is committed to that.
I just called.....
