Because Blogger's "Adult warning" often goes into a perpetual loop (isn't working properly), I will be making all new posts at my WordPress blog. You can follow it even if you do not have a WordPress Account. There're also my Twitter and my Tumblr blog, my Facebook and my Google+ page and my group.
(Update: Blogger hasn't fixed its problem with the "adult warning". Will go back to posting at my WordPress blog)

Saturday night thoughts

I'm sharing a bottle of Piper-Hiedsieck with my lady.  Normally we imbibe much (much) cheaper champagne.  But tonight we have something special to celebrate.

But (as usual, when I have a glass or two of champagne) I am led to think about the sorrow of life.  We have this friend, Julie.  Her children were at school with ours.  We met at kinder, primary school dos, high school, and after, at the supermarket, shops, going for a walk.  She was always such a happy laughing joyous person.  She wasn't a great beauty, but you didn't notice that, because her inside was filled with light.  And then her husband left her.  He wanted to "find himself".  He "needed space".  For a long time after that she looked physically ill, like someone with cancer or severe heart disease,  She aged 20 years in a year.  From being happy and convivial she became a recluse.  She doesn't want to see ppl or talk to them.

Only young people (or therapists or counsellors) think that life is good and that being a good person will bring its own reward.  She was a good person, and life kicked her in the teeth.  And now she is desperately, unbearably unhappy.

God is so fucking good.
