On crying

I remember a time last fall when it seemed that I couldn't or refused to cry. Well that wall has come down. I am pretty sure I have cried everyday for the last week. I slowed down my work and my eyes opened up and dripped down my face. Tears of joy at friends' husbands coming home. Tears of pride in the human spirit watching The Lord of the Rings. Tears of frustration of things not going my way.

From the sounds of it, I am experiencing something pretty normal. That this last month or so is tough for many of us. An emotional roller coaster I think someone called. Well that's me. At least I am aware of it now and know that I am not the only one. I might as well try to enjoy it for what it is.

Just one more sign of it being close to the end.
