wow, that's really awesome. I wrote something about "just being" once, it was about the kind of alone whole-immersion in nature that can be exhilarating. While Annie Dillard's writing reminded me of those experiences, some reason I really didn't like her books, but I'm not exactly sure why.
What are you studying? Comparative mythology sounds like a fun class.

Thanks for your kindness! I have a lot to live up to-my mom's a pretty excellent writer and brilliance isn't my forte...
I am studying my generals, with emphasis on Music Education and Early Childhood Psych. And Comparative Mythology is the most amazing class ever! The teacher is SO open minded, and I've discovered a whole new world beyond my warped view of reality (aka, cult life) and life has a whole new sense of adventure and excitement. YAY!!!
My dearest Angel; Brilliance is not your forte? What a fantastic little survivor you are, and how brave to share your life story with thousands of others so they too, can escape the misery and crud you put up with! We are so very proud of you, your BRILLIANT mind, and loving heart! And that Aaron! I am proud of him also; he is such a true and honorable man! We love you, Ange...keep on keepin' on! Hugs; G'maw and G'paw

Angel (& Vyckie): love the essay I would love to get to know Angel better: her story appears to have some similarities to my own: particularly in the QF phase of her life.
I know this belongs more to the NLQ Future Plans section, but I thought it would be nice to have an area where the "second generation" FQL could meet...the people that used to be the children of the movement. I know for me, the choices my parents made have forever impacted my life. It would be fantastic to meet others in the same situation: I know they are out there!
I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned, the hard way, that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's going to happen next. ~Gilda Radner
