As I listened to your comments I recall what my grandmother once said..use it up, wear it out or go without. During these trying times that is my credo. I also realize after listening to Anchee Min and others that the universe has something else in store for me. I'm letting go the illusion of the American dream, and I realize that for many it's an american nightmare.
I keep from feeling sorry for myself by recalling a bumper sticker I saw yesterday, God bless the whole world, NO EXCEPTIONS.
