my life was very grim -

laugh at it at it through tears -

if you must -

pray to the best god possible for each moment

apollo - mary mother of god - yahweh or buddha - christ -

i feel all of them are in us - somehow - and are a different part of being human.

and these powers can guide you -

- go crazy enough to shake it off -

but stay close enough to earth to keep talking.

- love those who love you despite faults

and make you feel ok to be yourself

despite a goof or insecurity

you are wonderful!

Thanks for this. You point out a few basic realities that we often lose sight of in our pain and confusion. If we can regain contact with those realities we regain an ability to keep a sense of perspective - laugh at it through tears, as you put it.

We so need to keep this sense of perspective.

Much love,
