True. I honestly felt like the forum might be gone for good. My habit is to come here in the morning at the same time that I check my emails. I would miss my brothers in arms, but life must go on, nevertheless. I really have very little to report. Life is going well, I'm busy enough doing things that interest me. There are always struggles, particularly the existential dread that can pop up from time to time, but it's not overwhelming. I find walking usually resets any mood. Little by little we identify that which makes us uniquely us, I think. I read about this baseball pitcher who had Tommy John surgery to rebuild his elbow. While he was rehabing he had lots of time to think. One of those thoughts was that, yes, he could come back to baseball and start throwing as hard as he could again, or, he could back off a little and be wilier with his pitch selection - he was looking at his career as a long-haul. What happened was he became a much better pitcher. He was taught right from high school that only flame-throwers were valuable. Well, now he's got a deal worth 65 million over three years. What "truths" have we been taught that are profoundly wrong?
