And so it is

And so it goes on.

The journey of the weary traveller. One step at a time. Dragging each leaden foot, the weight bearing down on the soul. Down the tunnel in the inky darkness into an unknowing future brimming with uncertainities. Drowning in a well of self-despair and worthlessness. Struggling to keep afloat. Battling the demons that threaten to stiffle out the last flicker of hope.

Trudging along, one step at a time.
Never giving up.

And so it is.

Note to people who still stop by:
Can't believe that you guys are still here! Cannot express how much that means to me. Thanks for all the kind words and support. May be someday I will be able to look back and reflect on these days and be able to write about it.

On a happier note:
Spring is here, the grass is absolutely green, the flowers are in bloom, the birds are chirping and building nests, the deer are starting to move back into the mountains, the days are longer. My lawn looks fantastic (although it is too early to say if the crabgrass will rear its ugly head in summer). My herbs are growing. The daffodils and tulips look beautiful in the front yard. The Japanese maple tree has never looked better. We have tons of cardinals, warblers, finches, woodpeckers, bluebirds, banana-birds, robins frequenting the bird houses. Got a new dining table and recessed lights in the living room and study. Met up with old school friends at a reunion that we organized and had a trip down nostalgia. Got my paper accepted in a journal that I wanted. And my parents will be visiting us for the next few weeks. It's been too long. Way too long. I can barely wait..........
