work for the cure of pain
in everyone, for we all
have at least some,
exaggerated in our minds,
and may think we walk alone...
llp - mar'09

Current Residence: Southern NH, just down the street from the Boston Air Route Traffic Control Center where i worked through the 70s before getting fired and barred for life from my career for participating in the 'PATCO strike of August 1981', [google it if you're curious]. i loved that job. Pres Reagan terminated 12,000 of us with a knee jerk stroke of his pen.
deviantWEAR sizing preference: medium
Print preference: index finger?
Favourite genre of music: alternative
Favourite style of art: surreal
Operating System: windows 7
Wallpaper of choice: Alexandra and guess who
Skin of choice: quite pale
Favourite cartoon character: road runner
Personal Quote: from he to whom much is given, much will be required.
good news today:  i will not suffer
any losses except the 'unhandiness' of
having to stay at the Holiday Inn up
the street until repairs can be made to
satisfy the city engineer, who evaluated
the snow cave-in damage to my apmt
building.  all my stuff is ok.  i just can't
easily get to it - unsupervised.

also, my renter's ins, The Hartford, will
pay complete expenses for my move
to the Lowell MA area later on, to get
closer to my kids.  it's considered as
'damage connected' 'weather delayed'!

but, i do miss my cable and DVR... :( (Sad)
motel TV is ok, but limited.

life is much more good than bad. w00t!  pip

Hey there, Pip.  Thanks much for the fave and comments, my friend.  Have a great week.  :)

Every time I see one of your comments I'm awed by your soul and brilliance. I wanted to say thanks for sharing with others because though I see your words by chance if we happen to be in the same line of comments, they make my days brighter and show me a whole different perspective and beauty. Thanks for that. :hug:

wow!  thank you VERY much, Calleigh!

it's just me trying to make some kind of a difference,
there being never enough positive nuance in the world... ;)

Well, if I could, I'd hug you ('cause screw pats on the back, hugs are far better). Because, you are making a difference, even when you may not know it, and you are such a force of positivity. Again, thanks for that. :hug:
