30 Days of Honesty -- Playing Catch Up Again

I didn't post this yesterday because I didn't want to take away from yesterday's peaceful Blogblast. But today I'm honestly trying to come up to date on this challenge:

Day 4 :: Something you have to forgive someone for. There are those who feel it's time for me to let Steve Bartman off the hook, but the furthest I'm willing to go is to stop calling him "Fucking Steve Bartman." Instead I think it would be better for me to forgive Crazy Old Neighbor once and for all. He continues to take up too much space in my head. This is going to be a long process, though, since neither prayer nor therapy seems to have brought me closer.

Day 5 :: Something you hope to do in your life. Remember how Wilbur eulogized Charlotte? "It is not often that someone comes along who is a true friend and a good writer. Charlotte was both." If someone can say that of me some day, I will have enjoyed a life well lived.

  1. Wilbur's eulogy makes me tear up every time I read it.

  2. I think it's not so much you can't forgive the crazy neighbor but he represents something in your life that you cannot forgive. His actions caused you to feel helpless - who else caused that feeling in you? That might give you a clue.

    So, let dead neighbor rest in peace. And look to see what he represented - that's where your work is.

    :) Love you.
