Wednesday. Not a bad day, all in all.

I feel like my life has been like a really long convoluted novel, twists, turns and drama. In the past couple of weeks some of the story lines are finally making sense. I'm discovering that the protagonist in the story (that would be me) rose above some pretty big obstacles, has developed some serious, some comical and some down-right psycho defenses and coping mechanisms. Stumbling was a big part of the action, but I always got back up and I never stumbled without learning something from the fall, the scrapes and regaining my footing.

Funny, in discovering my vulnerability, I have discovered my strengths.  In discovering my weaknesses I have discovered my backbone.

This week people have impacted me in ways I would never have been open to just months ago, the walls are down and without the barriers my sight and hearing are highly attuned.
