In all of our communication here I have realized that you are further
along on your journey than I was at your age (you are the same age as my
son BTW). In some ways I figure I might be out in front of you. In
other ways you are ahead. I appreciate that we have met along the way.

Somewhere in my journey I decided that the question of what happens to
me is out of my hands. So I do not worry about it. I have taken the
steps I need to to relieve my son of decisions that have to be made if I
proceed him. I enjoy today.

I feel I have freed myself from the "fear of punishment" if that makes
any sense to you. The funny thing to me is that once I did that I did
not immediately go off the deep end and start down the *path of evil* if
you know what I mean. In fact, I found a more stable place to make
positive decisions and I feel better about the ones I make.
