    part 2: It was horrendous watching him literally decend into madness. He's better now-he has a place to live near his father, and he's taking his meds-he wouldn't do that for the longest time.

    But it's difficult to be around him for a long time. He doesn't bath much or watch his clothes. He's rather helpless like a young child and manipulative. It is heartbreaking to see that all the dreams he might have had about having a career and a family are gone now, but at least he's no longer a homeless, unloved transient, abandoned by his family.

    Hi SilentMute. I'm glad you're well. Tell me a bit more about your online ebay business. How does that work, anyway?

    I have never read Oliver Twist. I have seen the 1948 movie, as well as the musical-which is one of my favorite movies. I should try to read it sometime.

    Don Qixote is definitely on my "to read" list, although I was planning on doing that next year. When the books are giant like that I get intimidated and read them very slowly, I don't know why. I think it might be the best book in the world, so I am hoping to read it.

    I understand why the mental illness aspect of it might make you uncomfortable, but Cervantes isn't making fun of them, is he? Or glorifying the condition, either. Rather, isn't he, among other things, exploring the nature of reality? In any event, I mean for this is help you to feel more comfortable as you read. My son has a friend who developed schizophrenia when he was about 23.

    Ha ha. Yep, I just really like that book. I've probably read it a dozen times for one reason or another, and as for the screen name: I've always identified with Sancho- a slightly dim-witted, always practical, somewhat skeptical fellow who was most of all a good friend to Don. Hey, if you're reading a translated copy, with one did you choose? I just recently read Edith Grossman's translation and I loved it.

    People may not appreciate celebratory holidays such as birthdays, but I think that they are special and should be embraced with much jubilation! So, happy to wish you birthday joys.

    Hiya, Silent,

    And thanks for playing along on the Short Story Contest thread. I'm afraid I was a little distracted and couldn't give the collaboration a lot of thought, but it was fun nontheless. It's busy-busy-busy this time of year in my job. Not to mix metaphors or anything, but on my last post, I more or less punted. I fell back into an old story line and just sort-of ran with it.

    At any rate, good luck if you have a story in the competition, and if you don't -HAPPY NEW YEAR!
