|Richard, you have written this with such honesty. As for lacking vitality of spirit....I think not! Original and intelligent work!|

|Now is the time to rise up and look to the positive and future, as the past is what it is and can never be changed. Spiritually challenging...

|'This mere shadow of former self' - this phrase especially touches me. When we catch sight in the mirror and have to ask Who am I now?... And here again, as I read this, I feel as though I'm looking in a mirror.

|The humility and honesty in this piece is really quite moving. I'm really glad to see your work again. I have to admit that I have been feeling the exact same way these days. Probably best described as a general sense of demoralization. Maybe learned helplessness is a better word. And I certainly have a self-destructive streak in me which, if left untreated, will gently guide me into the swamp of self-aggrandizement and untoward behaviour. I guess what I'm trying to say is I completely identify with these feelings. I won't bore you with all the reasons for my general mood of indifference except to say that I feel we're in this period of almost disbelief, or suspended animation, a transition into a new era where life as we knew it will never return; but the new ugly face of reality has not completely unveiled itself yet. Quiet before the storm. And I know it's coming and almost want to say: just get the God-damned thing over with already. Just f---n kill me already! I know the future's shot anyway, why bother. Just bring it on!!!!!! The faster we hit bottom, the faster we can come back up again. Maybe. Anyway, I'm rambling. I feel for you brother. I'm in the same boat. Titanic with a slow leak. At least that how it seems. Take care. Hopefully it'll all pass.|
