Dearest Temp
I am wading through my past yet again as well.  I'm disappointed, frustrated, confused, raw... alive.  So it goes.  And it does go.  Sorry to hear about the writter's block.  Keep pounding away.  Your unedited thoughts are, if not sequenced correctly, actually quite clear.

As for your direction: the compass is a few inches below your chin, the map is right under your feet.  Walk the road, and shine on Temple :).

All the best to you and yours for the holidays

Be brilliant,

Well, if I learned anything
from my dad's psychic experience(when the psychic in Denver told him EVERYTHING that would happen up to now), it is that there are clues.  There are clues and guides, and you will find them in unlikely places. They may seem silly and irrelevant, but they are there. My dad always tells me, stop and smell the roses.  It's hard to stop, I feel like I'm stopping progress, but really, I'm making progress because most people don't stop until it's too late.  Good night Temple

Learning to take care of yourself will be the hardest thing in the world for you to do.  Always remember the only thing that keeps us strong is by taking care of ourselves.  That handsome Marine of yours needs you at your best and that can only be achieved by being good to yourself!

bel, that explains all the clown (fish) I keep coming across!
(yuk yuk) That's a perfect description.  It sounds like you speak from experience.  I forget sometimes that I have to take care of me before I can do anything else or take care of anything else.  I bet you understand that a little bit, too.  Thank you.

Ariala, I certainly hope so!
I just keep writing and writing... stream of consciousness, trying to purge it all so there isn't so much banging around in my head.  I have a book journal, where I vent, but that wasn't enough.  I think I've been so overwhelmed with wanting to catch up the blog from all this time that I couldn't start.  I usually figure out what to do if I just keep writing.  Thanks for such sweet and thoughtful words about the piece.  It helps motivate me to keep going.  As far as my support of you and the other girls, I had no idea any of this was going on for so long.  You are always so diplomatic in handling ugliness, I was surprised to see all that happened.  We know she is suffering, so I wish for her good health, and I'm glad that anything I said helped.  I hope the holidays are wonderful for you, also.

Sometimes just putting it out there in the open helps a great deal.  You currently live in what I call a fishbowl.  You are on the inside and it feels as if everyone is looking in and they seem to think they know what is right or what is best but as we both know unless they have stood in your shoes, they really don't understand.

Be good to youself.

Temple, I believe you just broke through! Beautiful piece of writing, full
of insight and awareness...thanks for stopping by the other day in my post and offering your support, understanding and encouragement.  It meant a lot after what several of us went through here this past year and that finally came to a head not just for three of us, but across the board.  Thank you for recognizing the truth of the matter and for being kind to me and others about it.  It really meant a lot.  May the power of words emerge from within you as often as you want them to, and may you have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, my friend!
