My online friends have truly become my best friends. Isn't that amazing! A year ago I didn't even use facebook, nor did I want to. But thanks to an online class I took last August by Kelly Rae Roberts, I now have sisters across the world that I truly love! This has been a rough week. No particular reason -- just feeling meloncholy. Maybe Mother's day kicked it off. This morning as I drove in to work I couldn't help but think about my brother-in-law who took his life 6 months ago. When do you get over the shock? Do you ever get over it? You would think that with all of the violence that we see on TV and in the theatre that we would be desensitized to a death in real life. Not me. When I was 15 yrs old the guy that was my first true boyfriend was murdered. It's been over 30 years and I'm still not over it. Is everyone like that? I think about the elderly, sitting in their nursing homes, staring into space. Is this what they are thinking about -- all of their loved ones that have passed? Sorry for being so sad, but this is just the kind of week it has been for me. My plan for the weekend is to turn it around. Make art, enjoy the outdoors and get by with a little help from my friends.
