Take one flag down; raise another in its place

Silence is golden. It is true. Silence is powerful; it can bring a reaction out of someone with greater potency than cruel words. Silence is thus cruel and can be used as the most powerful of weapons when you've been hurt and don't know how else to react. Silence is your best friend. It keeps you from saying something you'll regret. Silence is your greatest ally. Watching someone else's discomfort is a joy in those times of emotional agony where you need to fight back. Silence is the last word. I think I got in the last word, loudly, clearly and silently.

A very wise friend said "nothing shatters hearts more than indifference." I think I do believe that.

The slim

I'm not very good at hiding my feelings, but I've learned how to deal with them in the appropriate, mature manner. So I can say in this brief posting of thought that the end of the tunnel approaches and I can see a lot of light. If it hasn't been clear or obvious, this blog seems to be taking a much more positive spin than in the past; certainly in the last year. But that's what changes bring--some good, some bad; some extremely painful and some hopeful. And that's where I'm at. So stay with me; I think it only gets better and better going forward and never backward.
