|Jerry, you've been connected to an extra-terrestrial on this one. It is not of this world. Thanks for that. ~~ Diana|

|I find this chilling and warming in equal measure - like life, like wounding and like the bliss of the healing burn. Like love, life is the cold slap of both pleasure and pain. Love how you've expressed this, Jerry. xx|

|I agree: life wounds us and there is no life without loss. As a reader, I can empathize and understand all that you say, with your powerful word choice. And yet, there are times when we focus on the glass half full and our perspective changes, which I find fascinating.

|I can relate. We can choose to heal or bleed to death emotionally. Man, I got a shitpot full of bandaids on me but I ain't dry yet. Patrick|

Hope you let it all go.

|An adroit and comprehensive wordsmithing of the choices we are faced with--that is if one believes we create all our own reality. Some would argue that hard lessons are chosen in an effort to learn the lesson (accepting lighter versions have not succeeded) and then with lesson learned, move on to our next experience of choice and the lessons there--hopefully useful, if not profound ones. As David Mamet said: Wisdom is knowledge perfected by suffering. Hope is likely the sum total of the process.|

|You have some powerful stuff going on right now Jerry. This had me firmly in its grip. I didn't realise, until I reached the end, that I had been holding my breath throughout.
You are quite right of course, just a thimbleful of knowledge at the beginning would tell us what that first slap meant for the future.
