“Just as the tumultuous chaos of a thunderstorm brings a nurturing rain that allows life to flourish, so too in human affairs times of advancement are preceded by times of disorder. Success comes to those who can weather the storm.”
- I Ching No. 3
Trouble is, I don't know for certain anymore whether I can weather the storm. There are times, rather a lot of them lately since the curse of Md has befallen me... us, rather... and keeps lingering, hanging on in desperation, that I feel about to succumb to... something detrimental. I don't know. There are other times when things seem good, and even great, but those are fleeting... today's sole good news was that a Texan dude made a repeat purchase at the t-shirt store. That was very cool. Yesterday had two, a note from my wonderful friend and that this blog got reranked to a 3, up from its mysterious devaluation to nothingness. Strange, that last bit.
Nice, certainly, but not what really needs to happen, you know? Sorry to keep flip-flopping on you more than Clinton ever did... just be glad I don't post everyday :-D. I need to snap out of it. It's hard though. It's... the relentlessness of it.
I'm told, by those that matter most to me, that it will all work out. I tend to believe that, but my skeptical side is ever knocking just off stage. Then of course there's living up to this quote off the sidebar here...
“I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
- Louisa May Alcott
