Another great and rough week this time around.
Our lives are like islands in the sea, or like trees in the forest. The maple and the pine may whisper to each other with their leaves ... But the trees also commingle their roots in the darkness underground, and the islands also hang together through the ocean's bottom.
-William James, psychologist and philosopher (1842-1910)
(via A.Word.A.Day, which I would recommend to anyone.)
I've become so used to having people upset with me in the abstract and hypothetical realm of anxiety that having it happen in real life is... harder? easier?
I read through a little more of my (19 and counting) notebooks. At some point I made a list of life goals that leaned heavily towards the extreme sports.
