|Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
|Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
|Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still
|You can always tell a real friend; when you've made a fool of
yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job.
(Laurence J. Peter)
|Friends are family you choose for yourself.|

My emotions have been spinning rather fast in these recent weeks. I have immersed myself in the creation of my poetry and music (see my new Polish site there), without which my life would be half-empty. I find myself beginning from scratch, on many levels of my life. I need this continuing transformation in order to feel alive. Staying at the same depth of understanding of the world would feel to me like I was suffocating. I just couldn't do it. I have to re-define myself, my world, what I do and where I go. I have been at a particularly fragile, vulnerable state recently. Feeling very lonely, yet finding that this loneliness is essential for me to transform myself. I need to feel uncomfortable with where I am at now in order to shift my consciousness, in order to progress.
I have a sweet new companion in my little journey, a book by Anne Osbourne " Fruitarianism - The Path to Paradise", which Anne kindly signed for me with her blessing. I find this gentle presence soothing, helping me move along and grow. I love the way Anne shares her experience without trying to patronize me, lecture me, prove anything to me, tell me I am less than perfect, change me. Rather, like the Sun, she shines her beautiful energy on me, and I stretch my sore limbs, close my eyes, and enjoy the warmth, aaaahhhh. Just what I needed! :)
Sweet regards to you Dear Reader,

I am going to take a break from writing. I deeply feel that I need to withdraw for some time to give myself some space to grow. :)))
