Shared joy is a double joy; shared sorrow is half a sorrow.
(Swedish proverb)
Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
(Sicilian proverb)
Your friend is that man who knows all about you, and still likes you.
(Elbert Hubbard)
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.

10th August 2009
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. :)))
