What a thought: I'm safe inside my turtle shell. If I can handle my momís bowel movements, I can handle my tax returns, my carís insurance, my credit card, my divorce. I have been putting off many of these things for years because I felt so incapable, so overwhelmed by the logistics of it all.

But I donít have to enjoy everything. Life doesnít have to be one huge hedonistic pleasure. Dealing with all these forms of responsibility brings pleasure in itself, putting them behind me, having them under control.

Making my shell a safe haven.
