  1. Anxiety aside, I’m glad you’re doing okay. You hadn’t posted in awhile so I was wondering about you.

    I hate the music on myspace too. One of the main reasons I hardly ever go on there.

    Good luck on your trip, I hope it’ll go smoothly. 🙂

  2. The music on Myspace autoplays? Good thing I keep my computer muted. Though the one time I tried to listen to something it didn’t work, so maybe it doesn’t like Safari (one hopes).

    Good luck with the parents. 🙂

  3. This is going to seem strange coming from me of all people, but I’m sending good thoughts and prayers your way for a peaceful and smooth visit with Ginger. I’d bet my best shirt that you’re more grounded than she is at this point in time, and that will help you find the strength to face whatever happens. Not that will be easy, in light of the things she’s done and said to you in the past, but knowledge is strength and you’re a strong woman. Here’s sending you an extra hug for the trip.

    • Finding peace with an estranged relative – especially a parent – is emotionally challenging, even for the most “evolved” among us, and I don’t always count myself in that category.

      It was… very interesting. And not in a bad way. Time will tell. I allowed myself to be open to the moment, to not give into expectations or anything like that, to appreciate what was offered and said at face value… and I think that allowed things to go well.

      In the end, I don’t know what this means, but it certainly explains the drive I had to take this trip on my own. I don’t think I could have devoted myself to the needs of the moment without being distracted, and I feel that let me get a lot of things taken care of.

      The funny thing about it is that I reached a peace with her within myself some time ago, and I figured that she would likely never come around to trying to find peace with me. It’s a strange, strange place to be… but not unnatural, although still highly unexpected.
