I think the universe sent me a message last week while clearing out my deceased Aunt's house, a sad procedure. In her book pile we had gathered, my Mum lifted up a book entitled "Selected Russian Short Stories". I took that as a message right there! It features stories by Chekhov, Dostoevski, Gorki, Pushkin and a few others. I've got the book by my side now, will be dipping into it. I like short tales, you can cram a lot of good info into a short tale. Maybe the need for positive dissociation is the chief message from the DCM there. This is a good thread, I'm gonna track back and read what's offered here. The conveying of positive life methods is much needed, looks like that's where this thread is headed. As always for me, I'll keep things Karmic and Simple, it's the only way I truly learn something.
