Trying to remember what that word "Vacation" means. I used to be a workaholic and my boss never let us take more than a day or 3 of vacation time in a row and now that I am on disability I've never had the money to go anywhere. My last vacation was in 2001 when I literally had to threaten to quit (even submitted a resignation) when I was turned down to take 2 weeks off. I went to the UK by myself and had a great time. Haven't been anywhere since except in 2002 when I had to go to AZ to handle my Mom's estate when she died. Does not count as a vacation.

Anyone reading this: I am NOT talking about you. it's all me. Except for that newsletter that's been on the back burner since the Eisenhower administration but needs to go out this week.  

 

For me, it's such a rearrangement of my schedule, getting coverage, changing my email, outgoing message, voicemail, signing out patients who are struggling, etc etc etc, It's more work to go on vacation than to simply take a Friday here and a Monday there.

That's the problem. The bad can't get a word in edgewise without being ignored. 

Which is a good strategy if you want a pleasant RP, right?

That I need to stop going in the politics threads let alone posting in them. I know I've brought this up before but it would sure be nice if the politics threads had their own RAFT where you had to willingly go into to see them. And yes I know I can just not click on them but would be nice if you didn't have to even see the titles if you didn't want to.

Wow.

131 Mount Vernon St.,
Boston
July 28th

My dear Grace,

Before the sufferings of others I am always utterly powerless, and the letter you gave me reveals such depths of suffering that I hardly know what to say to you. This indeed is not my last word—but it must be my first. You are not isolated, verily, in such states of feeling as this—that is, in the sense that you appear to make all the misery of all mankind your own; only I have a terrible sense that you give all and receive nothing—that there is no reciprocity in your sympathy—that you have all the affliction of it and none of the returns. However—I am determined not to speak to you except with the voice of stoicism.

I don't know why we live—the gift of life comes to us from I don't know what source or for what purpose; but I believe we can go on living for the reason that (always of course up to a certain point) life is the most valuable thing we know anything about and it is therefore presumptively a great mistake to surrender it while there is any yet left in the cup. In other words consciousness is an illimitable power, and though at times it may seem to be all consciousness of misery, yet in the way it propagates itself from wave to wave, so that we never cease to feel, though at moments we appear to, try to, pray to, there is something that holds one in one's place, makes it a standpoint in the universe which it is probably good not to forsake. You are right in your consciousness that we are all echoes and reverberations of the same, and you are noble when your interest and pity as to everything that surrounds you, appears to have a sustaining and harmonizing power. Only don't, I beseech you, generalize too much in these sympathies and tendernesses—remember that every life is a special problem which is not yours but another's, and content yourself with the terrible algebra of your own. Don't melt too much into the universe, but be as solid and dense and fixed as you can. We all live together, and those of us who love and know, live so most. We help each other—even unconsciously, each in our own effort, we lighten the effort of others, we contribute to the sum of success, make it possible for others to live. Sorrow comes in great waves—no one can know that better than you—but it rolls over us, and though it may almost smother us it leaves us on the spot and we know that if it is strong we are stronger, inasmuch as it passes and we remain. It wears us, uses us, but we wear it and use it in return; and it is blind, whereas we after a manner see.

My dear Grace, you are passing through a darkness in which I myself in my ignorance see nothing but that you have been made wretchedly ill by it; but it is only a darkness, it is not an end, or the end. Don't think, don't feel, any more than you can help, don't conclude or decide—don't do anything but wait. Everything will pass, and serenity and accepted mysteries and disillusionments, and the tenderness of a few good people, and new opportunities and ever so much of life, in a word, will remain. You will do all sorts of things yet, and I will help you. The only thing is not to melt in the meanwhile. I insist upon the necessity of a sort of mechanical condensation—so that however fast the horse may run away there will, when he pulls up, be a somewhat agitated but perfectly identical G. N. left in the saddle. Try not to be ill—that is all; for in that there is a future. You are marked out for success, and you must not fail. You have my tenderest affection and all my confidence.

Ever your faithful friend—
Henry James
