JoyinTheSpirit-I've struggled with similar feelings for a long time, and am starting to gain some skill in managing them. Start another thread, if you want, and send me a poke toward it; I'd love to chat with you!

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the world. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down. Tells you she's hurting before she keens. Makes her a home.
