As much as I have been posting sad things lately, I must confess that there is a great deal for me to be happy about. Though this blog is a forum for my thoughts, I tend more to brood than bask in the truly good things that coincide with the heart-breaking.

I am meditating more and more on the subject of gratitude, because although there have been some depressing developments, each one is countered by truly wonderful and genuine people. And for each one I am grateful.

In my family of origin, love is conditional, affections calculated, and withheld accordingly. In the family of my choosing, though, there is none of that. If you are reading this, you’re likely one of the latter, and you mean so much.
