Over the last week, we have had the freeze, then the thaw with great chunks of ice falling from the trees. One of the main bridges to the town where I keep my boat was closed due to icing. Once it was opened, I was able to travel to the boat to make sure all was okay. I listened to the ice fall from the rigging to the deck. And the bridge was closed again because ice was falling from 200 feet and crashing through car windshields.
I am meeting up with a fellow I sponsored for about a year and a half tomorrow. He emailed me a couple of days ago saying that he wanted to meet because he been withholding some feelings, which doesn't seem fair or honest. He doesn't want to "drop a bomb" on me, and would like to be positive and work it out, if I will hear him out. I'm not at all sure what this is about. I called and left a message for him to call me, but he hasn't done that and continues to text me about when to get together. I somehow feel that a bomb will be dropped but will hear him out. And I will look at my part in whatever is bothering him. I'm keeping a positive feeling about this as he and I have had a close relationship in the past.
The new fellow that I am working with seems to be hanging on to a lot of self-pity, but we are moving on in our step work. I know where he is coming from because I have felt wronged and discarded many times. We are moving forward in a positive direction though.
Lastly, I felt a lot of sadness about the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman from an apparent heroin overdose. The disease is waiting and doesn't seem to take a day off. Such a sad ending for anyone.
Hope all of you are doing well. I can't seem to get much time as I would like to visit blogs and comment. Hope to make up for that this week, although I will be on the boat from Wednesday through Friday.
