Into the Light

The past two months have been hard. (Hell, much of the last 18 months has been hard.) I drove towards Buttress this morning, with my mountain of uncompleted school work, and relationship, economic, employment and other issues on my mind. I was somber and somewhat sad, but my eyes lifted from the road towards the sunrise. The deep purple of the horizon gently blended into the pure light of the dawn, over which a clear blue, almost cloudless sky rose.

And I knew everything would be all right.

It will indeed be all right, my friend.

I sometimes wonder if knowing so with such certainty isn't something of a curse, like not really being able to sob when crying, anymore. It's as if I'm robbed of the fullest extent of the utter depths of depression.

But then, that gets to Absolute Zero, and there's no coming back from there.

I'm glad that I don't have to worry about you.

Everything will be okay in the end.
If it's not okay, it's not the end.

Amazing the pretties the world shows to cheer us up sometimes, ain't it? Beautiful canvas!

and.... dang Matt. I.. I never heard anyone else say that before - my experience is the same. It's nice to know it's universal. Well... to the extent that people hitting bottom is a good thing, I mean. :)
