A terzanelle on one of the greatest friendships with which I have ever been blessed….
I had a run-in with her* this morning. I’ve actively and successfully avoided her for nearly a year—until now. Our paths have crossed only twice before this (of which I know) since early last winter but I believe that she didn’t see me at that time: I would’ve heard about it if she had, I’m sure.
Certain recent experiences have caused me to realize that a lot of the stress and discomfort that I have felt in my adult life is a direct result of my not recognizing and accepting who I am and how I was designed to interface with the world as empathic, deeply emotional person, learning how to live within this reality without becoming utterly overwhelmed while becoming and being the friend on whom those who are hurting can rely.
It’s the most horrible day of the year (with apologies to Pola and Wyle!) … well, it is for me, at least. But hopefully not forever. Actually, yesterday went rather well, all things considered. It all comes down to a promise with a little faith. And hope.
In this open letter I acknowledge and apologize for various mistakes and failures, as well as the pain and offense that I have caused through them, being the source of unmeasurable grief in the life of my friends and acquaintances. I present this apology to request an opportunity to reconcile with those of you that I have wronged.

It has been over five years since my last blog post, but this is going to change… as of now!
