I Don't Know But it Hurts

Taken from an earlier journal entry:

Seeing these girls who are slaves to things which used to enslave me gives me hope. I escaped that with little effort, so maybe I can get even better...older. And maybe less crazy? It's possible I guess.

...I go back in four days. It's easier to come and go now because nothing seems too permanent. But it still hurts my heart to leave Marth alone.

We're fine. Everything's fine, and maybe even better than that.

My six month letter from Outward Bound:

Take this time to remember what you are looking at while writing this letter. The island that represents no difference between the happiness that comes from minimalism and that which comes from excess. The massive bay that represents what you're capable if if necessary, if applied.
I'm no longer begging for the feeling of my bed. I'm thriving. Craftsmenship: do it well, not just what is needed to get by.
Being patient with people
Staying positive intrinsically
Not avoiding work
Doing all that you are capable of
And not judging others if they are not capable of the same
Think about how comfortable you are, but remember that being uncomfortable is Good
