"Sur ce sentiment inconnu dont l'ennui, la douceur m'obsèdent, j'hésite à apposer le nom, le beau nom grave de tristesse. C'est un sentiment si complet, si égoïste que j'en ai presque honte alors que la tristesse m'a toujours paru honorable. Je ne la connaissais pas, elle, mais l'ennui, le regret, plus rarement le remords. Aujourd'hui, quelque chose se replie sur moi comme une soie, énervante et douce, et me sépare des autres." (from "Bonjour tristesse" by Françoise Sagan, 1935-2004)

Today, strangely enough moreso than in the months of anguish in 2006, the words penned by a very young Sagan reverberate more both with as within me than at any other time... I guess I am an absent-minded nutty professor type after all - me, who wanted to avoid teaching as a career option, at all costs...

However, the Lord Wants us to be happy To flourish, prosper, rejoice To live in bliss - for He Is with us!
The Christ Himself despaired though Up on the Mount of Olives And Up on The Cross - He Said: "Oh, Father - why has thou forsaken me?"
If even HE Could have a moment like that
Surely I can be excused as well...
All of us can.
Everybody reels from one thing or another, at one time or another
We fall down - we get back up on our feet
Resilience does not allow for this
We remain faithful and hopeful, both, that things will improve
