This one takes at least a little explaining. I had occasion to have a brain scan this week.
When the doctor came in to show me this, I cracked up.
I've never seen my brain before, and maybe it looks like everybody else's, but my first thought was,"It's so HAPPY!"
I've been told I see life through Pollyanna lenses. While I take exception to that characterization, it is true that on a scale from 1 - 10, with 1 being "obnoxiously morose" and 10 being "perpetually in danger of being Mayor of Fiddle-Dee-Dee-ville," I'm generally about an 8.5.
It doesn't mean that I'm not heartbreakingly aware of the most difficult things in life -- I most certainly am. What it does mean is that while the difficult things force us to walk through them, they do not require we take up residence inside them.
Regular programming resuming soon!
