You are most welcome, Temple. It was really very beautifully written.
Your write-up I mean, not mine, because I am not mean.Hahaaa. I'm a bit nonsense too. Thanks anyway.

Bhaskar, what a great literary compliment!
I just read this again, and what freaks me out a little is it's relevance to the events of the last week or so.  What would it be like... if someone amongst us could not ask for help because she did not know how to?  I guess as a society we don't make it very easy to ask for help, or to be vulnerable, do we?  Thanks for the thoughtful comment and the read. I'm glad you liked it.

An artistic return to reality from hopelessness. Great job, Temple!

Troosha, yes, hopeless can be a dark and scary road.
I've seen a lot there myself and with friends... as well as in some of the work I've done.  Not to mention it seems like lately you just look around and there is so much sadness and devastation... suicide by cop?  Who would have ever thought that would be a common phrase?  Thanks so much for reading and for your thoughtful comment.

Moving is so draining!
You must be exhausted. I'm glad you and Mr. ET had a nice Thanksgiving.  I've been reclusive.  Stress makes me that way too.  So you cooked meat? It must be love!  I cooked too.  I'm not a vegetarian anymore, but I certainly understand and respect it.  I'm always happy to hear from you when you have time.  If you ever need someone to talk to, you can always find me.  Well, I'm going to bed.  Good night Wen!

I know just how that feels.

I remember once, when I was 17, lying in a nasty hotel, hoping my boyfriend would strangle me to death.  Why would anyone want that?  If they are too afraid to do themselves.  If they don't think they can be helped.  Hopelessness.  But, I told you, I had good news, and I do!

  Remember those three teens I told you the state wasn't helping.  Well, their father's court date was last week. Emil was called as a juror(but not chosen), so that's how we found out what was going on.  The father decided to plead guilty, to avoid a jury trial.  He was expecting 5 years.  Then my friend Judy asked the judge if the kids could speak before the father was sentenced.  Each kid told the things the father did. There were pictures(how sick is that!).  The father ended up getting 29 years!!  I was so happy for those kids. Then, they arrested the mother immediately after sentencing.  She wasn't upset while the kids were telling what the father did, but she was upset when he got sentenced.  Anyway, I just felt like sometimes, the justice system does work. Hopefully those kids can move past all of this and live semi-normal lives, although, the middle teen, a 17 year-old girl, was dating a 38 year old man.  I think there's going to be some issues for her about sexuality.  Well, take care!  I'm glad you're back

You certainly conjured up a vivid picture of hopelessness and the reality of where that sometimes takes people......

Freeman, well, I don't smoke, but I totally agree.
The edge and beyond is a tempting place to peek from time to time, indeed.

I think we all daydream about going over the edge sometimes. Then we just
light another cigarette and rejoin the conversation.

Hiya Strat :)
Yeah, us writers gotta visit the deep dark sometimes, ya know.  The world can be a sad place and sometimes I actually just notice it all.  People always worry that everything is about me when I write it, so I'll just say this was just inspired by a bunch of things and I'm good. (I'm an arteest, member? haha)

Wow, Temple.
That's some pretty powerful stuff.
