Here are the things that are troubling me at the moment:

  • My love is far away, and I don’t know when I’ll see her again.
  • My job may well end soon and I’ll be unemployed.
  • My older daughter is coming back to live with me again, and I don’t have anywhere to put her.
  • Money is getting tighter and tighter.
  • I have lost the will to write my fiction.  I lost my patience for it.
  • I need to get new tires on my car.

Here are the things I am thankful for:

  • I have found my true soul mate.
  • My younger daughter is going to school and getting better.
  • For the time being, everything is okay.
  • I have found the meaning of life itself.

That last one might seem a bit bizarre.  Can I share it with anyone?  No, I can’t, because it would be meaningless to anyone else.  We all have a different answer to the question:  “What is the meaning of life?”  You have to find your own answer, and it will be unique to you.

I think the fact that I’ve found the meaning to life is a major reason I’ve lost interest in fiction.

And, no, I still don’t take myself seriously.  I’m just feeling a bit blue today.

  1. Since I KNEW you were going to bring up the number 42, I had mentioned in my frist draft of this post that NO, it is NOT 42. It is in fact the number 69.(Kidding)Really, it’s not something that can be put into words. Or, I’d have to invent new words to describe it. The closest thing is “enlightenment” but I am not claiming to have been thoroughly enlightened, only shown the path toward it and the way to follow said path in my own way.
