I've been dealing with a personal challenge lately, outside of but I guess somewhat related to jiu jitsu. In a very short amount of time, I've gone all over the emotional map (except anger) and it's left me feeling wrung out and fatigued. At one point I was so happy that I wished for more smiley faces to express my degrees and flavors of the expression, like the Eskimo have so many words for 'snow.' And at another, I was tearing up and lamenting my stupid, stupid heart. But I think I see the light and with the love and help of my friends, it's going to be back to normal soon. Not that I want normal. The crazy thing is, while I was in lala-land, I loved it.
Then I got these pictures from my friend Dan and it cheered me up quite a lot.
