Thanks for the comment on my picture. I appreciate it. :) Sometimes (like right now) it's really hard, but I keep plugging away. I love that university like home so I try to use that picture to keep me motivated. ~Nancy

'Depression is also a form of fear, and at its deepest, it is also paralytic. It is as useless to ask a person immobilized by depression to summon the power of will as it is to bug a dance of a corpse.' Paul Gruchow, 'Letters to a Young Madman: A Memoir'

That sounds wonderful, Mary --- definitely need to journal about some things, and would love to see you again. Unfortunately this coming weekend is not good. Maybe we can tentatively aim for the following weekend. We'll nail it down. Love/Hugs, Eric
