Excerpt from a recent journal entry

Why do you seem so sad, so angry, so distant? You say you are sick of living like this. In a way. But see, I love living.

A thousand miles away in every sense.

We cannot help the way we live, I think. Inevitably, too many things must be determined for us. I cannot cast away my education, my earnings, my goals and ambitions; what I can do is stand beside you, support you, give you love and anything else you need- in return, please be happy. Be thankful. You have so much in what matters- people who love you. A community. A family to fall back on for help. Youth. The entire world to explore. So let's explore it.

I've eaten too many Swedish Fish.

I love your optimism, dear one. Your level head makes me happy.

Okay, don't change your photos above, but it just a teeny bit, the two images remind me of something. You're Little Red Riding Hood and Allie is the Big Bad Wolf!

Well then she's a damn cute wolf!

I'm really glad that you're handling the situation so well. I can't wait to see you this weekend! We will have TONS of British Accent Therapy. It is way needed for both of us.
