How do you deal with it?

I see it's common in today's media that revenge is portrayed as a justified action against the betrayer. It is perceived that all the blame lays with the one who committed the offense.  That causing another hurt as a means to begin the healing process is somehow mandatory.

I take another approach personally. I look at my own expectations. Was I expecting too much? Was I expecting them to adhere to my ethics and standards and not their own? Were my expectations ever properly communicated and agreed upon? Did I just expect them to understand my requirements?

Over the years I've found that it's much easier to enjoy any situation if you just keep your expectations in check and let be what will be. When we expect certain outcomes as the only possibility we set ourselves and others up for disappointment.

Hello,
This is Ameya's twin sister, I met you briefly when you were here to pick her up for your trip. I wasn't sure if you knew that she had passed away in October. I tried to contact you before the funeral service but was not able to- however if you are ever in the area again and would like to visit her resting place you can always get in touch. My email is sableantelope@gmail.com and I can give you our number if you ever needed to call for any reason. I know she cared a great deal about you and always treasured her experiences on that trip. She is much loved still and much missed.

Greetings hippotragusniger,

I shall always regret not having had a chance to say good bye.

That trip however was done knowing that her beautiful mind was not long in this world. I wanted her to have some special moments to remember in the dark times ahead.

I wish you and your family peace and thank you all for trusting her to me for that trip. I will always remember her smile and the silly things she did like touching a huge cactus in the middle of Arizona...

Greetings.

Stumbled upon your gallery, and ended up reading your journal. Interesting reading by the way.

Question, what's with the numbers at the start of your journals? Are they a form of date notation? The accountant/mathametician in me is going mad tryinng to figure it out.

Greetings TevDorrin,

Sorry that there wasn't much in the gallery anymore. Due to various policy issues and online thefts I have gone into a bit of a non-sharing mood.

However, to answer your question. The numbers are the Mayan Long Count which is a base 20 calendar. It doesn't make much sense out of the context of the other two calendars that it compliments. When you hear of the ominous 2012 date, this is the calendar they are making reference to.

Be Well,
