Fortitude in Snow

Late-night notes to self

1) Concrete-diving, as a sport, is NOT recommended. Arnica oil helps a bit, so do please use it.

2) Treatment received @ the hands of DSHS workers is actually a secret test of one's patience & tolerance. Perservere. Their idiocy & condescention are temporary irritants, & are *never* as bad as cancer (& you've already conquered that).

3) Don't worry -- do something else instead. Do what you can & trust that the rest will come (as it always does). Then rest.
