No November gloom. At all.

I looked outside my office windows and I liked the view and I am sharing it with you. And then it made me think...






Heavy clouds are plaguing the sky over Ljubljana and the colours have all but left the city , but we've been pretty lucky so far. November can be one of the most depressing months in this city weather-wise. This are first serious clouds of the month and hey! we nearly ran out of November.

It's really funny when I come think of me about a year ago and now. I guess that November/December last year presented probably the darkest period of my life. I just didn't know what to do with my job that - after two years - started to seriously pushing me into something that was the closest approximation of depression. But I didn't fall over the edge and I would surely never look for the helps of any kind of drugs. I had to fight my way out, I just had to do it my usual way. But I needed five more months and when I finally resigned from my bossy position in May (a relaxing week in Tuscany surely helped me making the right decision; I opted for life) my life turned into something totally different.

Well, it returned to my usual, careless, happy, joie de vivre mode. And since then everything seems to be working okay. So I guess this is a kind of my late thanksgiving lament; I am thankful for all the nice things that happened in the last year. Oh, also for the bad stuff, because it made me re-evaluate my life, my goals, my priorities. So, there. Even I can stray from flashing. Sometimes.

I think you would be a great actor. But it's hard work. You have to memorize scripts. I'd rather write them. You'd have to pay me a lot of money to act!

I should check the reporting on Mitja - yeah. I'd like to learn more about that.

but I hosted a TV show back in the day. 1997 methinks. :) - is there a video?

All done? :)))) - Well, I replied to every one of your last batch of threads. Can we finish those conversations?

That you're always thorough is a gesture that is not lost on me, but very much appreciated. It shows that you're interested in conversation and making friends. And that's what I'm interested in. I appreciate that you do this with other people, as well. In my book, it makes you that much more special than others :-)

I know I must seem anal. But in the touch-and-go world that we live in, I like the intimacy between people who give each other the time of day. Don't you?

Obviously, we don't have to do it all the time, but it's nice to finish conversations. No?

Well..... dedication is demanding. And I am cool with that. :)

Sometimes, it is nice to finish conversations, yes. :)

"Dedication" is a bit of an exaggeration :-0) I would say the common courtesy and the decency of that gesture which I appreciate in those who care enough to take the time to do it. Because so many people know what it is but don't always feel the inclination to observe it. Nobody has to. Because nobody owes anybody anything. But those who feel they do are classy in my book. I cherish them. I think you understand :-)

Cheers :-)

Well, I try to be the same on LJ as I am in real life. I don't just walk away without any explanations. Some nice manners and a smile always land in a nice place. :)

I do understand.

HUGS
