i've come so far

All alone, I didn't like the feeling
All alone, I sat and cried
All alone, I had to find some meaning
In the center of the pain I felt inside

(from "Sand and Water," Beth Neilsen Chapman)

"I didn't notice because I'd drifted into a state of constant absence, many months, if not years, before, staying numb to avoid a creeping unhappiness just under the surface."
(author unknown, essay in Redbook, November 2006, "The Awakening")


three years ago, i shook free of the numb and the unhappy and the emptiness.

i've never looked back.
