98 OF 365 (366) For 2012

[ All credit to aliZmuh, whose lovely picture may be found here. ]



at some point in their lives,

wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world,

and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them,


and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again

and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape,

hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve,

but suspecting,

in their heart of hearts,

that they will remain unloved forever.


The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up,

so that they can feel this way, too.”

    • Ha ha ha – you crack me up (that is once I’ve de-spammed you 😉 ):

      There’s a German proverb that goes somewhere along the lines of

      “Shared pain is pain divided – Shared joy is joy doubbled.”

      It’s one of those paradoxes of life 😉
