Happiness is being outside and finally feeling a WARM sun on your face.

Pride is planning to go for a five mile run, and then running ten.

Fear is suddenly knowing, and not just suspecting, that you are being followed, and that there is not a damn thing you can do about it.

Relief is making it home, locking the front door behind you, and crying real tears - the sort of tears that flow when you realize you are safe and sound.

Anger is realizing that because there are major creeps out there in the world, something I love doing (running) is now tainted and dangerous.

Recovery is channeling that scared, negative energy into something creative and artistic, something that brings the smile back.
