Recipe for an Emotional Rollercoaster

Preparation: Drink a glass of coconut-mango rum punch while on vacation.

Step 1: Watch 20+ hours of Downtown Abbey. The initial episodes will entice you with farce; the latter episodes will string you along with melodrama. You will snicker, you will weep. [Three hankies per episode.]

Step 2: Watch Modern Family. Laugh until you have to go to the bathroom and change your underwear. Reflect on the great social and cultural abyss and parallels between 1912 and 2012.

Step 3: Read an article in a message from a friend in response to your post about Kony 2012 ["People who seek to assist in their pain will move heaven and earth to rid the world of this scourge once and for all."].

Step 4: Realize that honour and kindness are timeless.

  1. My children will find love where they may.
  2. Honesty is always more important than "fitting in."
  3. We must not sit on our hands when there is something to be done.
That is all. For now.

P.S. Despite what this post might convey, we are enjoying a blissful holiday.

  1. It is wonderful to listen to your blasts of laughter from the next room, while you enjoy Modern Family. Evidently you are enjoying your vacation.
