Semi-intentionally, this blog is a haven from the ills of the world. I'm well aware they exist, but I try to avoid piling them here, creating cynicism. Last week I had address two suicides that affected me, Jeremiah Healy's even moreso than Robin Williams'.
They have me thinking about the impressions we leave, how these may differ from how we see ourselves. At key times in my life, family and friends have been there for me, but if I didn't also maintain my own positive attitude and self-image, no amount of outside support would save me.
So allow me to restore the blog's positive vibe by reporting that my self-image is fine. I remain hopeful in the face of my own difficulties. Carry on.
