Totally jealous of your Summer weather. I live in Idyllwild CA, at 5,250 feet, on the West edge of the Palm Desert. So when it snows, it doesn't stay, our night time low is only about 30 or so, daytime, 40 or 50 F. I do want to move back to San Diego though for the constant Summer. Gotta get mom settled first.

Resting today, only slept 8 hours. It's been bitter cold here and mom and I heat with wood so I woke up early to make sure when she got up the house wasn't too cold. She refuses to buy a little oil filled heater for these sub 30 degree nights. But she is quite a bit more frail than I and I do not want her health to suffer.


Gotta chop some more wood today. We're getting into Idyllwild's dead of winter and when we get back from San Diego on the 28th it'll be bone chilling through January.

Rest today. A bit under 8 1/2 hours sleep. Time to rest. (:


Today I want to add a new part to my log. Something I am working on very hard. Ever since I was little dealing with my medical condition and with my relentless peers caused a lot of distress to me, to the point where I developed anger issues. Anger issues I am still dealing with today. I can become relentless, angry, cruel, and mean when I lose control. I am guilty of not being a nice man at times.


This is not right. This is a bastardization of how my mother raised me, and what this society needs is not another jerk, but a gentle soul to guide people along and nudge them in the right direction.


With a new blossoming relationships in my life I've begun to gain control of my emotions. I am finding a deeper sense of inner peace and control and I have made it my goal to keep it this way.


Typing this out helps me because I am learning what helps me gain control and what doesn't. Forcing an un natural demeanor seems to work for a while, then it builds up and I snap again. Hiding my true personality behind a bubbly exterior is just as much of a lie as being a mean grouch. Telling people how it is, it is not me being mean, but just a clause of my personality, I am very straight forward and often times while correcting my anger issues I have surpressed this. The more I let my true self shine out, the more days I get under my belt of being patient, clam, and compassionate, the easier it gets.


I attribute this to a woman who has entered my life. I am now finding it much easier to hold true to the path and correct my emotional issues and I want to document it here to help me hash it out in writing.


Thanks for reading my log guys. Love you all.
