"Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field. I'll meet you there." ----- Jalal ad-Din Muhammad Balkhi-Rumi, 13th century Sufi poet.

"Have faith that people do their best. I don't know anyone who would eat with pigs out of a trough in a muddy barnyard if he knew that a well-prepared meal was on the table in a clean house - do you?" Greg Baer

"The Secret in healing Narcissism is not to heal it at all, but to listen to it. Narcissism is a signal that the soul is not being loved sufficiently. The greater the Narcissism, the less love being given." ~ Thomas Moore, 'Care of the Soul'.

Lol goddamn. I'm sorry Tony but I have to laugh at that kid's way of celebrating father's day. :evillaugh: I'm glad you're otherwise ok (hope you didn't get assaulted as well, you must have a good way of controlling these kids :evil:smile:.

I got Eckhart Tolle's book, Silence Speaks, which I think will be very relevant for me with my constant constant obsessive thinking and inability to be calm or relax.

I changed to the Roddick serve and now I'm serving at about 120 miles per hour on the court. It's ridiculous... just aces and unreturnables all over the place. I have to say I'm enamored of my own game :ego:

I wanted to go for a bike ride this afternoon and found the was off my bike. So I pouted and went through a brief period of wondering why everything bad seems to happen to me. Why does God hate me? After I cleanred that out of my sister I sat down and worked with the chain enough to see it was a minor problem, More amazingly I fixed the problem and Have lived to bike another day. I allowed the defenses to go away after a very brief period and discovered that I can keep myself biking with minimal effort. This is a good thing. :smile:

I'm on another blockbuster binge... Alien, The Insider, American Beauty, Mystic River, and Rosemary's Baby. Yes it is more avoidance but they're damn good movies. :demon:

Its been forever since I posted a positive. One reason is my life has been kind of living hell and I haven't had much good to say about anything or anyone. Until today I was beginning to think life sucked. This afternoon I got up and treated myself to a new bicycle. Now I have the resource I just have to motivate myself to do something this summer that might qualify as healthy.

Maybe I'll meet some women? :newtonguesmile:

Watched American Beauty. Very funny movie, too accurate about today's family life.

I was feeling depressed over the weekend and rather than isolating myself I went out and tried to find someone to be with in my time of need. This brought mixed results that I'll discuss later but I think its good that I was searching for human contact.

This may not sound like a positive but,

My car died on the weekend. Dead, caput, no work. However, I did not panic, cry, break down or freak out. I am dealing with the situation and hopefully will be up and running before the week is out thanks to my ex's brother.

I hate having to rely on other people, but sometimes, a person just needs a little help.

And, the weather is finally warming up. I have 20 new freckles after the weekend! (I'm a redhead, tan is not in my vocabulary)

Mel, I think its great you can ask for help when you need it. I wish I was that brave.

I treated myself to a lazy weekend of Harry Potter and baseball. I guess you could say the adult needed a break so the little kid was in charge. The only problem is I ate so much junk food that I have a tummy ache. :sick:

I had a good tennis lesson, and an interesting conversation with my tennis coach, who is in a similar position in life to where I am. Totally bewildered that is. :wink:
