Here I am at another place and time. A view from another railing in my little hometown of Delanson, NY which I describe and bring you to, as if in a movie, in my book, "Am I Going To Be Okay? Weathering the Storms of Mental Illness, Addiction and Grief." In that book I speak of those times in this 2nd floor, cold water flat, where my parents and I lived. I was 18 months old.
Interesting how our memories will come to us unbidden. Now over 50 years later, I have my own small place on the second floor with a balcony railing that looks over the beautiful countryside where I live. Yes, you are going to be 'Okay'. One day at a time. One moment at a time."Creative living requires the luxury of space for ourselves, even if all we manage to carve out is one special bookshelf and a windowsill that is ours."
