I'm sure everybody has times where life suddenly goes from being horrible and stressful and just generally miserable to being fabulous and full of joy again. I am having one of those times right now. Miraculously, there isn't even a good reason; I just suddenly feel happy and full of energy, whereas a week ago life just barely seemed worth the effort. Maybe it's reading the words of people who care what happens. I'm reading Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead, and, more importantly, Inga Muscio's Cunt. What a cool book! I had forgotten how inspiring it can be to read something that makes you feel happy to be who you are. Regardless of what's happening in my own personal life, there are things that can pull me out and make me feel alive again.
