A Year of Gratitude - Day Two Hundred Forty-four

Day 244 - Turnouts
I am so glad I didn’t have to meet with anyone today.  It was my worst day emotionally since I was laid off three years ago.  I was totally useless.
I finally got in the car and drove around just to be doing something other than sitting at my computer pathetically looking at familiar websites looking for hope - and finding none.  I happened upon a road with turnouts for those wanting a view of the city (or, more accurately, of the freeway) through the overgrown trees, and of Mt. Hood in the distance, at least on a clear day (which wasn’t today).  I finally had some privacy, as I sat there and cried.
None of the passersby noticed, and I’m grateful for that.
