You are a very good fellow and I appreciate your compassionate nature, but my self deprecation, though sincere, is well-deserved and not meant to be troublesome to others. You see, for me, it is a tool (in this case, a shovel) to dig deep for something of value that lies very deep indeed. One day I hope to uncover a mother-lode of gems that will sustain and perhaps justify the fact that I like to write (if only I could write something of value). I was told once that, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again." But, I try not to be too prolific in my writing for this reason: My love of writing is greater than my ability as a "writer." Now, I must apologize for stringing this thread out as long as I have (have surprised myself). With everyone's permission, I'll take my leave for a while to dig in some obscure place, until this Excellent Forum can tolerate my morbid musings again.
: The truth is that there is no uphill or downhill, we only percieve such changes. What we percieve is based on our internal make-up(like mentality, tolerance, intellect). We are like inanimate robots place in a highly energetic pool in which we are forced to learn to swim or perish from electrocusion(or however you spell that:). There is no right or wrong way to come to the surface of the pool, but those who dont even try will not even have a chance in the first place. My point is that we are here for a very short time, and no one cares who we are or what we do in the end, and therefore it is our choice how we live, whether it's giving bread to the poor, or taking over other governments. I believe that by not paying mind to what other people think of what I do or who I am, I am able to live my life, and not be interrupted because of percieved inabilities, ones that might not really exist, but that I percieve because I am to interested in what other people will think or care about what I do. Anyhow, I am just rambling, but I hope I made some kind of point somewhere:)
