If you let it suck you in you're toast. I almost let it suck me in. I'm climbing back out. I have hope.
I'll (The Mandrel) be around for a couple more months. I have friends. They didn't run away and hide when I cried. They rallied around me and helped me. I am grateful. I can and will be happy and hopeful and productive. I have ideas, and glass, and talent. I can and will do this. I write it out because I need to "say" it where everyone can see it. Or at least where I can see it. :)
Thank you to everyone who expressed concern and gave me ideas, and want to help. I need to have my shop. I want you to need it too.
