just got back from denny's. had a good bite to eat[my usual, a veggie omelette sourdough toast and hash browns(unfortunately denny's doesn't have spinach)] and read the first book of paradise lost. good stuff : ) i can't wait to read more, but i'm thinking bed is good, since like i mailed to danny, being awake as everyone else is going to bed is depressing. it's like being the last one at a party, watching everyone go out the door. it feels like everyone is leaving you. thanks for the support as i was in a bad mood tonight from various sources. it was well felt. : ) it may not have helped at the time, but i feel better now that i've gotten out and am on a better footing with myself.
