In a month (long version) of days, I will have survived seven decades in this tangled web of being we call life. I do not know whether to weep or rejoice. What meaning to the world, my seven decades? What meaning to myself?

I ask these questions of myself every year; the answer is always the same; I don't know. Not knowing bugs the hell out of me. I can not bear (though I do) the thought that there is no meaning, that I am only the product of a random sperm on a thoughtless night, without any meaning more than that.

I am the rain godess. I do look down upon the earth, and cry and cry and cry. I dance in the storms, and let the rain pour down my shivering back. I throw my head back, eyes open wide, rain pouring down my cheeks like tears, into my eyes, into my desparate and dripping mouth. Cold at first, but after so long nothing is cold. The infinate grey skies, lightning sooths me, thunder sings to me. My heart is lifted. I lat there, on the sodden grass and let the rain wash away my worries and my broken hearts.

What popped up was a featured site for the day along with a sidebar of categories: arts, news, just for fun, science, research, gossip and more… and clicking on them brought many subcategories. She settled on arts/humanities/writing and instantly saw it: the website that would start bringing her out of the darkness: www.100words.com. Every day, write 100 words. No more, no less. What a brilliant concept! And it would force her to have some sort of (productive) consistency in her life… because solitaire and Depeche Mode’s Black Celebration weren’t really getting her anywhere. But this? This was a step forward.
