I recently wrote that I thought I'd figured out who was being so hateful to me last Fall. I wrote that I'd decided to forgive that person.

Now I've got this theory rattling around in my head that, if true, means that I not only should forgive her, I actually owe her a big debt of gratitude.

Not gratitude for being such a bitch in the Fall, as that was really uncalled-for, but for finally helping to put a stop to the bullshit that's been going on ever since.

For finally explaining that which was apparently invisible, or at least irrelevant.

Empathy is a hard thing to teach. I hope the lesson sticks.

Or, I could be just as wrong about this as I've been about everything else.

Like I said the other day, I'm in my own little world here.

And in my little world, I may have found myself an ally, or at least a sympathizer.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
