Do you ever get the feeling that you're drowning in all life has brought to you?

That's how I feel today. I thought last week was bad, when a dear friend died. I thought yesterday was bad, when I got a rejection on a major piece of writing. Then today's news happened, out of the blue with a phone call, and I have some things to really cry about.

Sometimes I wish I were a turtle and could pull my head in and ignore the world. That's not gonna happen, though. I've got to buck up and muddle through everything. Wish me luck!

Oh, Marsha. Good luck. One of my favorite quotes is by J.D. Salinger. "I have no cure, only consolation; someone else has passed this way before."

It will get better. (((Hugs)))

Good luck with everything you're going through.

Thank you, ladies. I know it must get better.
