Alex--I was thinking about you and found you! (You might not remember me.--Sioux Roslawski.)

My email is sroslawski@yahoo.com

Rohin--This post made me feel like I was there. The sensory details took me to another country... another continent... another way of life.

(I am so glad the man--seemingly--did not die as a result of murder. For me, murder is even more heinous if it happens around a sacred site.

Wow, Rohin. I didn't know you were such a talented fiction writer. (At least I'm hoping it's complete fabrication ;) I had no idea where the story was going, and when the last couple of paragraphs came hurtling my way... well, what a twist. (I lovedlovedloved the details about the food and drink after the shooting--so lovely.)

Bravo!

Rohin--I have been a horrible writer-friend. I said I would nudge you when you did not post on a regular basis, and I have not done that. I am sorry.

You can't beat yourself up about anything. I read recently (on another blog) that "Comparison is the thief of joy." (Theodore Roosevelt said that.) You can't compare yourself to others. There will always be more prolific writers, more talented writers, richer writers, more well-known writers. Your job is to find the joy in the writing you do.

Have you considered doing a self-published (perhaps published on demand) collection with some other writers? It could be all essays, all stories, all memoir vignettes or a mixture.

And whatever difficulties you're facing, it's not as bad as having Donald Trump as your country's leader. Am I right?

Rohin--People usually just repeat what they've seen in their everyday life. They get stuck in a cycle. It takes a great deal of determination and stubborness and independence to break out of that cycle and go all rogue.

You must do what makes YOU happy. What makes you stay true to yourself. Your true friends will understand and if not, hopefully they will continue to be your friend...

Life is too short. Make the most of it as you follow YOUR path...

Rohin--I am behind commenting on your blog--sorry. It's been a really busy few weeks at work. (Reports cards needed to be prepared, parent-teacher conferences... I could keep on whining but would you keep on listening? ;)

I am so excited. It's a crazy month when you do NaNo but you're a winner just by saying "yes" to the challenge... and any words you get down during the month is gravy.

Get some extra sleep in the next few nights. You're going to need it. ;)

Obviously, I am not doing a good job of reminding you to post... Maybe you should fire me and hire someone else?

Life is so short. Too short to keep heaping guilt upon one's self, I think. I've certainly felt guilty about some things, but certainly not in as many social situations as you have. Perhaps your culture is better at piling on the guilt?

Rohin, your post made me wonder what transgressions I've committed and never made up for... what things I've done that I should feel guilty about but were oblivious to. However, I'll try not to beat myself up over them...

I try to ignore most, but if there are occasions (rare ones) that I feel I will do more good than harm, I might gently nudge my way in. Never do I come in with anger or chastisement, since that would make the situation worse.

For example, I might compliment a child's eyes if a parent is being overly harsh with them, to try and get the parent on another track.

Rohin, your post, as always, made me ponder...
