Silence

I haven't been posting lately because I'm looking into some health issues (both physical and mental) and haven't been in the right frame of mind to interact with anyone, much less write anything. I hope that the cycle will swing back into a better place in the next few days, and I'll be settled enough to open up again.

I find it annoying how much we are at the mercy of our biology. Isn't it time we invented robots into which we can upload our personalities and minds already? Someone needs to get on the ball.

I say, until we have immortal, indestructible, incorruptible robot surrogate bodies and FLYING CARS ALREADY!!, we just give the finger to the entire technological complex.

I just turned my computer on five minutes ago and saw your site. You know I'll be calling you in the morning. As big sisters are prone to do, here's some advice... I read a quote the other day that a person's chances of winning the lottery are about a million to one. A person's chances of improving their outlook on life, however, is one to one -- you and you alone control how you look at life. For some reason, that made a HUGE impact on me. I've been going to the high school, whining about how much work there is, how I'm worn out at the end of the day, ad nauseum. Then I decided to stop it immediately. I went to school the last couple of days with a smile and the reply of "Great!" and "Couldn't Be Better!" whenever anyone asked me how things were going. A couple of the girls told me they liked my class because I was encouraging and they could tell I really liked what I was doing. So those odds went up, all with a little adjustment on my personal point of view. Now if there's something seriously wrong, of course I'm not suggesting you take that lightly. It's just that what Harry Wong said made absolute sense to me at that particular moment in time and it's been wonderfully life affirming. Funny how that happens, isn't it. Don't worry, Jeff. Turn that energy into a positive direction and, as my hippie friends might say, improve the intensity of your personal karma. Love you! Denise

Be well Jeff. Come back when you're ready. We'll be waiting.

On your worst day, you are funnier and smarter than most people. So GYAIG and come on back.

Have you ever thought about getting a dog?

Jeff, I hope everything is OK. Call us if we can be of any help.
I like George's suggestion - I seem to recall reading something about the health (mental & physical) benefits of having animals around. Maybe you should look into that.
