Melancholic Melody

Dearest Elaine,
it is wonderful to hear from you and even more reassuring to know that you think about me even though we are as far apart as we possibly can be without leaving this planet. I'm doing fine here. Debbie's departure has definitely had an impact on me. She was probably the only one I could communicate with very comfortably on a level plane. But life goes on. It's easy to get depressed especially when one is like me – not too social. I'm not one for parties or shallow talk. I know that I should be more proactive in the finding of friends but the inertia just gets to me. I tend to do everything alone. There are things to be learnt, and I pray that I have the strength to do them.
How are you doing over there in Australia? There are times when I wonder if I have made a mistake by coming here and being so far away from home. But I know that God has a plan and that He will give me strength to see it through.
I listen to my musicals and fall into a world that I am familiar with. It's not much, but it's a solace.

and see my tears run down
the window pane.
I sit and watch the sky
I can see it heave a sigh"

*laughs* I am not utterly depressed, do not worry. There's a bittersweet sadness in melancholy isn't there? In its own way it's reassuring and comforting. I know that I am not alone.
