This ride of ‘no addictions or obsessions’ has suddenly transformed itself. Up until now, I’ve been careening at break-neck speed, through the pitch blackness, on a hairy, frightening, emotional roller coaster; being tossed around like a rag-doll, completely out of control. But suddenly, an abrupt change has occurred. Suddenly I’m finding myself in a place of absolute quiet stillness. It feels like I’m riding on a smooth platform that’s silently and swiftly skimming across the surface of a pale blue, sparkling, glassy sea.
