I I have always considered myself to have lived a long time in a very short while.  Either that, or a very short time in a long while . Either way, it hasn't always been fun,.

   Now that I have a family, the days are pretty much unpredictable because families get up to the most unexpected things, like making spontaneous plans a week or so in advance to go on a vacation, and then plan for it, look forward to it, only to have it cancelled on the very Friday it was supposed to happen. I guess I will do yardwork today instead of having fun.

   There are advantages to having a family---the time goes by quickly, as it is always action packed. Or spent sleeping . One or the other; either way the time speeds by. It was two weeks ago since I came out of a deep depression brought on by deep insecurity and laziness; it seems like two years. I cannot remember how I felt before I cheered up.

   I am very cheery these days and looking forward to 50 more years of fun family time. Maybe more !

Sometimes I miss "family fun" but for the most part I do better on my own.  Give GranMama Donna and Margaret my best.  R&L ;-)

Family is always fun even when it is miserable. There is always some hidden drama

amongst people you seem to genuinely love

much to yr surprise.

What is family? why should we care exclusively for these people, and not those people next door we see more often maybe?

I have limited tolerance for family fun. Seems like some damn kid or other has been in town all summer. It's state fair time though, it's almost over.

(Don't tell them I said that!!!!!!)

Would love to hear more about this if you can stand it: a deep depression brought on by deep insecurity and laziness - because of all the time I spent trying to convince my mother that laziness had nothing to do with it.

Because how often you see people is not an indicator of how much you love them.

If it were, you'd love putzes in your classroom more than your grandparents

I am always jealous of bipolar people because they get to come out of their depression and get an UP.  I am just depressed...period.  Family is trouble. 

Comment by James Mark Emmerling on August 29, 2015 at 8:49am

Kosh, why then do I dream nightly nightmares of those times in middle school when I hated the people I was around more than my family? eh?

zanelle, well you ought tobe jealous of me the UP IS SO UP BABY. WHooooo. Makes it worth it.

often I think I overdramatize my depression make myself miserable as a man can

just to enjoy the exhilaration of exiting dysthymia and entering euphoria.

Comment by James Mark Emmerling on August 29, 2015 at 8:52am

Arthur I was born at an earlier age than thee atleast a century or two or three

the roads were dirt then is what I remember of my former life

a travelling dispenser of good time charley behavior the short life of a bipolar drunken philosopher jester singer.

mystical genius par excellence?

abstainer? abstractor?
