De Nile

I was a pretty good swimmer in my day. It actually took me a while to get to be good because I was totally afraid of drowning. Once I got past the fear, I could start to actually swim. However, I still have that small fear of drowning.

Now, I don't care how well you can swim, eventually the swim gets to be too much and the body of water is too large. That is the point that I am approaching.

I woke up again dreading the thought of the furnace kicking on. I am making good money, but I bought the house with the concept that I would be making better money. I sound like a broken record, but the money thing bothers me. I have never really had to worry about money and I really don't know how to deal with this. I don't know...

it is always the best swimmers who drown.
It is hoped the winter is not too cold and you bundle warm.

Carrying your image of swimming... did you ever learn how to tread water? that is, how to stay afloat and conserve you energy and resources, even to relax, while you waited for help?

Look over what you have. Jettison or suspend what you do not >>need<< at the moment, reduce and simplify, prioritize. ...and then look over what you still have and remember with thanksgiving all that it represents.
