US novelist (1941 – )
How can I say this without going into nothing aimlessly or pure hubris? After being appointed as someone else’s guardian after what has happened a few days ago, it seems that I am now conflicted between abandoning duty and keeping someone else’s promise. What is a person to do? She is obviously unwell and knows it, but simply refuses help because that is the way she is. I am also forced to cut out being the detached, alien observer, now forced to pick between the ones I trust and the ones who are right in their words when it comes to the nasty turns in a maze called life. I have just found out the recent news of a friend getting dragged into this mess, even though his involvement was minor in the least. This storm will never come, nor will it blow over.
