In light of the horrific devastation that Irma is leaving in her wake, and to those who've survived her wrath, all I can say is this: I know you're not ready to hear this right now, but it will come.  The incredible things, the indescribable joy, the re-creation of self; those things are on your horizon.  Don't lose faith.  Hold onto hope.  And by all means, don't piss Journey off.  Don't stop believing.


Some of us navigate through life with a strong sense of who we are, and who we want to be.  Others (like me), well, we get to re-create ourselves a few times before we we figure out exactly who - and what - we don't want to be.  We thought we had it figured out, but - surprise! - let's be something else, something different... something more.
