More, Now, Again.

There are some big ol' monkeys on my back these days, and I'm thinking of letting them hang out for a while.

Happiness. Anticipation of the next Good Thing. Cheerful Bonhomie. Motivation. I'm completely addicted to them. They're all milling about, pushing aside my old friends Depression, Loneliness, and Anger. I've had some assistance in the matter from friends, both literary and corporeal, but I'm starting to believe that the principal architect of this increasingly great life I'm living is me.

(jesus. just reading that makes me wonder who the hell is talking here.)

I'm a little nervous, though. Like all addictions, the fear of withdrawal from my drugs of choice is agonizing. What if Happiness gets on a bus? What if Motivation walks out the back, jack? What if Loneliness shows up at the table in my kitchen and demands to be fed?

Can I get swift kick in the ass, please? Life is GOOD.

I guess you don't get the point yet - at least as of the date you wrote this post. The pain will only last a little while. Fear of loneliness is part of the pain. It will go away suddenly one day soon when.......[fill in the blank with the dream of your choice]. Who knows, maybe the fear of loneliness has already gone away since you wrote that post. It goes away that quick. Guaranteed. PS Thanks for losing the hat. With the hat you looked like the guy from far northern Norway who has a blog on MyBlogLog where he shows fabulous photos of the winter he endures eight months of the year.
