Translating emotions

Have you ever been so convinced that you were right about something, so rock-solid sure, that if you had been offered the chance to, say... bet your life savings on it, you would have taken the bet without hesitation?

And then found out you were wrong?

Because you were missing one teeny weeny detail that turned out to be extremely important?

I've never ever done that in my entire life.


Sometimes certainty, the desire for certainty, it is like a magnet for me that pulls me toward an answer, a belief, an idea, without regard for the truth.

I can't believe it's been two years since I've posted. Someone, I can't remember who, once wrote that they tended to write least when the most is going on - in other words, when she had a life. I don't know if that's true, but I suppose I really have been pretty busy with living life. I don't feel any less busy but it suddenly dawned on me that I haven't written in a very very long time. It wasn't so much a lack of inspiration as no time to write it down - and also a self-imposed limit that has been making things difficult. I don't like disclosing too-personal details of my life where they could potentially be stored, well, forever. Or at least as long as there are computers or an internet.
  And when real life starts taking over, there's a lot more too-personal stuff and less of the sorts of things I feel comfortable sharing. But maybe I can find some way around this problem. Maybe I can find a general way to share what I'm thinking about without all the details that would likely be boring to most people anyway.
