Sandra, I rarely even visit this section, since there are so many feelings overflowing in the open forum. Actually, I don't think I ever really noticed this corner until last month. When I joined I made a shortcut to my desktop straight to forums. I have since realized how many great 'side streets' there are on this site.
As for feelings, I am not just feeling ill from the flu, but from reading the news this morning of another suicide bombing in Israel. When I lived there, I saw the bus behind mine blow up as we pulled out of the Tel Aviv depot. My driver glanced in his mirror and then hit the petal full speed ahead. Those of us on that bus knew how lucky we were. Scenes like that seem to be a daily occurrence now, and I can barely even watch or listen to the news anymore. I find myself immersing these wet eyes on friendly blue pages instead of the TV screen. It's my latest survival technique. Since September, I sometimes feel I should be paying Ron a monthly Sanity fee.
How is that for feelings?
I have many more, but can only get a handle on a small few these days. Right now I'm working on surviving Alaska winter, homeschooling my daughter, and somehow sharing a piece of LOVE each day.
