However... I'm struck by the question: "Is the glass half empty, or half full?"
If all you're gonna do is look at it, it's a complete waste. Fill it, drink it, both... if you don't use something... who cares how much of it you have??
Saw G.I. Joe, yesterday. Snake-Eyes is my favorite character. I loved the conversation around him near the beginning:
"what's his story?"
"He doesn't speak."
"He never says."
How does he tie into the glass? ...it's not how much power you have... it's what you do with it that counts. [or don't do with it, which is how Snake-Eyes & Jesus fit together for me -I'll explain later]
Have a wonderful month.
Life is often desperate, but never hopeless. - Robert Fripp

Living room sanctuary
I crawl down there
Hands & knees
Scramble onto the couch
Even though the sun can’t properly get in
A living room prison?
A living room
I stay on the couch
Immobile for a while
Bothered that I cannot do anything
Never thinking that, for some,
This has been true for years
And will be
For the rest of their life
But I’m just stuck till I feel better
Here with You
As I wait out the dizziness
When the room stops spinning
I can start to venture out again
Or at least try to be on my feet again
And, at last I am
Ready to venture out into worlds unknown
I’m so glad that this chapter in my story is long over… That I can go out & hike, or take pictures, or just take a long drive [Sat. morning was wonderful…]
