  1. That was very interesting, EJ. It takes a brave person to realise that reacting to everything without stopping first and considering your actions is a very fraught way of life due to the consequences incurred. It’s said that emotions rise and fall like hot air in a balloon and if you just stop and concentrate on the emotion with full heart, then it pops and disappears. It’s not always easy to do this, especially if you are very upset. But I think that for advancement, it has to be done. So I think you’re very brave to tackle this.

    I’m in the period of my life where I suppose I have turned into a hermit. I find this a much quieter and easier phase to deal with. I have an outlet on the web and have created a persona like an actor, to be honest. Is it the real me? I think so… but with a lot taken out that I consider the darker side of me. Maybe all writers need to be like this to balance out characters in the books they write. I’ve had the most horrendous things happen to me in life and some of the most wonderful, too. I don’t know if I’ve got over either of them, it feels like an emotional bombardment. I just know that for me to exist, I have to retain a balance of peace and quiet and sit in the middle of that with the two areas of life – horrible and nice – on either side. I don’t know if this makes sense to you, but as you are so good at introspection, maybe it will, my friend.
