*good sigh*

You know... good friends are all you need in life.

If you have that, you have *everything*.

I told my counsellor the other night that I am happy - happy in life, happy with my life. Happy. And that I can't remember being this happy for this long a stretch since I was about 10 years old. She sat back and went, "Wow." But ... on the other hand, I think it's a good thing to finally find myself at a place where I can say that.

And apart from the fact that for me, 2008 will always be the year of freedom and friendship, I really let go of expectations this year - of mine and of other peoples. And I found out that beyond expectations, there lies happiness, it seems.



There's a storm outside ... off in the distant there's rumbles of thunder and there were large drops of rain earlier.

But it smells like summer.

And today I bought my first quarter of watermelon. It looked like it would be sweet, so red and juicy. But ... it wasn't. Watermelon isn't like it is in the Mediterranean.

Today I did another massive cull of Last Short Story. I really am going to start reading for 2009 on December 1 so I have 10 days left to read what I *really* want to. That's been an interesting exercise. I now have 310 stories left which is still far far too many.

I feel like I've been absent from lj though I have been blogging.

Here is my tally progress:

Last night I had dinner with looneyboth and two old work friends (J and B) for the last of our foursome dinners. Looney will be sorely missed - all the best babe! See you on the interwebs!!!
