Tame The Darkness

I know that is is very dangerous digging through the dark recesses of my mind. Yet I do it all the time.

"Never walk unescorted through your own mind- it can be a dangerous neighborhood."

I think I continue to do this to desensitize myself to it. It's not so scary when you visit every day.

Who said the red words?

Jenn said...

It is from the "AA" handbook.

That was unexpected.

Jenn said...

No, I don't own an AA handbook... nor do I go to a meeting.

I got it off another blog

I just wasn't expecting it to be a quote. I thought it was something clever that you made up. The other day, I followed the links on Jason's blog and found Abiding.

Your post got me thinking about one of the crazy guys I almost married. He couldn't sing a note, but one night he got on the piano, started clanging (he couldn't play), and made up a 'song,' which wasn't really a song, because I don't think he ever really had anything close to a tune. Anyway, I remembered the words all these years, because he shouted them so obnoxiously. They're very profound. :)

When it is dark,
turn on a light.
If you can't see,
just flip a switch.
A light will make
your life brighter!
So take heed of
what I have to say,
and your life will
be much brighter.

And now for something completely different.

Anyways, I'm sorry life sucks right now, and I'm praying for you, and I hope things get better soon. Let me know when you need some time off.
