Joy lies in the fight, in the attempt, in the suffering involved, not in the victory itself

black eyed dog he knew my name



Nick Drake was born on June 19 - the same date as me and Heath Ledger was born in Perth, Western Australia - the same city as me. It's weird how things overlap, and the fact that one of the last things Heath Ledger worked on before he died was a tribute film clip to my favourite Nick Drake song definitely gives me a shiver or two.

Things are tenuous here, as my posting of this clip suggests. But I know that I can wait out the blues and things will improve again. So much to say, so little energy to describe it properly. It's mundane and parochial but hey, it's my life. Managing to eat (a little too much), sleep (somewhat less than the necessary amount), go to work (if begrudgingly) and stave off bankruptcy (for the moment). All else resides in the too hard basket, and I apologise for my lack of substance around y'all's blogs lately. I will be back. In Nick Drake's words things will be Bryter Layter.

I'm sorry things are in the crapper right now, my friend. I'm glad you said that you know you'll get through it, because YOU WILL! You have so many skills now through DBT, and so much more wisdom. Let me know if you want to chat via IM or anything, OK?

I know how you feel. I haven't been following to many people's blog lately because my knee got messed up. However, I would always take physical pain or mental any day of the week. I like Heath Ledger too! I think he was one of the greatest actors of our time, he could have even been better if given the chance. Thank the Lord, you and I didn't go down his road.
Hugs,
Amanda
