Hero Hunt

There's a line in a song that I love...

"If the whole world goes wrong, I'll don a cape and fly to your rescue."
By Chris Rice, from his song "Let the Words Escape" on the album What A Heart Is Beating For. I truly think he's a brilliant lyricist, and manages to evoke such powerful thoughts and images with the simplest of words.
The line makes me so wistful, and envious - wishing I had my own superhero, someone willing to step up and come and save me. In a lot of ways, I think I already have that, in people who love me - and I know I have a Saviour. So why the longing for a hero?
I think, more than anything, it's this: I want to be the hero. Not only do I wish I could save others, I wish I could save myself. I'm slipping again, and it's dark down here.

Note: No worrying, Mum, I'm not suicidal, just "down." It happens, and I'm sure I'll get over it :P

Muirnie,

I like the new look on the bli-zog. =o) Hang in there. Blues lift and skies open. Things begin to get better. Easy words to type, huh? But I know whence I speak. To have the burden lifted and to feel free and unemcumbered by self-loathing and the like...it makes life beautiful and it makes every little thing that people may take for granted seem three-dimensional and crystalline. The Sun sparks through life and casts brilliance in the darkest corners.

Peace.
