No real worries other than the worldwide ones. Sciatica is giving me hell, but then that's nothing new. Had a bad moment yesterday, when I thought I'd left my harps (harmonicas) at a venue where several dulcimer society friends and I just gotten through holding an Instrument Petting Zoo for the kiddies (don't worry, I didn't leave them out for the tykes to blow on and spread my horrific germs; I just habitually keep the set in my banjo case, and of course had to take out the zippered pouch in order to take out the banjo, so...).

The kids were ho-hum about my banjos and the dulcimers, but boy, did they go after my mandolin and bodrhans, and my friend's el cheapo fiddle (one of those black things you can buy at a music store for 90 to 120 smackers)! We had our hands full just keeping them from playing too hard with those.

Is it mean-spirited of me to be distrustful of child hands all over my instruments? that's one worry I have, that I might be a mean old b*stard at heart. That possibility kind of bothers me...

Don't think your a "mean old b*stard at heart" for not wanting people - and kids are sort of people - pawing all over your instruments, MW! I don't like people pawing mine, either, and they don't need to be blown into!! Grin

And there's nothing really wrong with being a mean of b*stard if you want to be, although it's a self-limiting condition 'cos after a while you find there's no-one around for you to be mean to!

My dear Mr Bailey, on rereading my previous post I realise that I may have inadvertently given the impression that I believe you to be a 'mean old b*stard'.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Please accept my apologies for any offence I may have caused.

Mr. Bailey, might I posit that you are not, in fact, a b*stard at heart, but merely someone who is wise enough to have seen how reckless children can be, and have learned the hard way the value of a dollar?

SAM:I think we need to explore whether this attempted murder was a hate crime.

GENE: What, as opposed to one of those "I really really like you" sort of murders?

I have returned from travel, and am confronted by what I call the post convention depression (though in this case it was essentially a 90 day convention, so the hieghts from which I've fallen result in a mighty resounding smack when I hit). And my psychological tendency to withdraw and hide for months is reering it's head. I've pushed past my comfort zone to do something I dreamed of, and enjoyed doing. The doing of it was hard work, with sacrifices and challenges and I reveled in the doing of it. But now I'm not doing it and my psyche is folding like origami to pull itself in a disappear for a while.

That's not how I want or need this to go.

I think I'm working my way out of it again, but the time I've been under has mounded up the workload I should have been on lately and so now the mound is intimidating to even contemplate starting work on.

I suppose there is nothing for it but the doing. But how? I guess it's just one of those eating elephants things.

It is so often the case after completing something special one feels a sence of anti-climax, and unfortunately the higher the achievement the deeper the subsequent low. I do hope you can find a new focus to lift your spirits and give you back that sence of enjoyment you flt when working towards your previous goal.

All the best,
Miranda.

Ms, Courcelle, do not concern yourself; no offense was taken.

Dr. Smithson, Thank you, I had not looked at it in quite that way.

Hi Both my son and I have Aspergers so we sort of live with stress anxiety and depression everyday. Over the years I have become quite knowledgeable on ADR and related illnesses if anyone wants to share or talk about it I am always happy to help and if I can't answer your questions I have friends who are experts who can.
