(Yesterday's entry was interrupted by an impulse trip to Target. I'm back.)
One of the ironies of the shadow: it contains your greatest strengths. It's not unlike cleaning out an old purse and finding a substantial stash of change. Each of those coins has a flip side. Stubborness' reverse is patience. (Allegedly) telling detectives that a vial of coke is ashes from one of your dogs indicates an ability to creatively think on the fly.
You get the picture. Wouldn't it be nice if for their sakes, and their families, they would, too?
