I just went for a walk in the winter wind. I went to a place that allows me to reflect. I'm very lucky to have the spot I have there, and no matter what, I've been able to keep it my own.

The first date I went on with my ex, we went to the zoo on August the 14th, 2003 - the night that the blackout struck all of the north eastern US and Ontario and Quebec.

I currently live close by some clay cliffs that overlook the lake that the city I live in is built around. There's one spot in particular that is sheer on both side of the narrow peninsula of clay that justs out about 300 ft above the lake. The only thing before you when you stand there on a cold night like tongiht is blackness, the wind and the waves on the beach. After we got back from the zoo me and my ex went to this point to look out into the blackness of that night, with some of my family members. We all gazed into the glow of the moon that night and were awestruck by the power of the complete isolation that being without electricity brought.

The spot is still mine and I reclaimed it again tonight. I'm moving away from this house though and will miss that point, and miss the solitude and reflection that it brings to me when I go down there and peer over the edge like I did tonight.

Tonight, I stood with my face to the wind, allowing it to be numbed by the freezing wind, and screamed as loud as I could. Why does this make me feel better? I guess it's just good to let it all out every now and then, and good to get perspective on your place in the universe, and to realize, that at any moment if the wind got strong enought and changed direction I could be blown off to my death! I would definately recommend to anyone who is feeling completly discouraged, and who is feeling like things will never get better, to find an isolated place like the one I'm have been lucky enought to enjoy, and have been visiting since my childhood, and has been a part of me for most of my life, and just go there when nobody else will be there and scream as loud as you can. I found this to be theraputic, and it allowed me to let out all the excess emotion that I have, that now has no place to be directed, because I was so used to directing it at her. What's left I reserve for myself and myself alone. Happy new year everybody, and thanks for listening.

Hi. That is an excellent story. I always think that is theraputic too. I also would like to try this at time, but there is no where for me to scream. Or would I even know how to scream. I need to scream. I need to let go of some anger that I carry around with me. It is stuck, just there in my mind. Any ideas out there, of something theraputic for me?

I used to go to the end of a runway and scream when the jets would land.

I tried to do it when they took off too but the jets tended to take off half way down the runway and then be out of screaming range by the time they got to the fence.

I will try that scream sometime and see what happens. The only thing I am concerned about it: What would people think, would they think that I am nuts???

I want to scream but where would I scream. I don't want to look ridiculous. How about sticking my head in the dryer and scream as loud as I can. My anger will go away. Oh but that anger would be in the dryer and get on my clothes, so not a good idea. Would not want to wear my anger. I have to think of something else.

It doesn't matter what people think, and if anybody did overhear you you probably won't need to speak to them again anyways :-)! Would you think that you're nuts? Nothing for me comes close to just letting go and screaming at the top of my lungs!

Find - thanks for that beautiful description of your experience. After I read it, I felt some "relief" myself. I just lived it thru you, and YES, it was incredible!!! I guess I have a very vivid imagination:)

We all need a place where we can just let it all out like that. I must admit, you brought me back to a place and time when I did the exact same thing. Years ago, I lived out in the country and I would drive my vehicle out into the middle of an open field on starry nights or when the moon was full, and lay on the hood of my car just looking up in awe. And letting go of lots of things in my life I had no control over. It is the most "freeing" experience. I could yell for days and noone would ever hear me. Singing aloud brings me the same type of comfort. I think it's all about the need to be heard!!!

Happy New Year to you as well, Find! You are an incredible man that any woman will be lucky to have some day! Peace and happiness to you in 2006!

Love, plz~

"How to Find Yourself by Screaming A LOt!" read "Bunnicula" for a hilarious story on a cat, a dog, a vampire bunny and therapeutic screaming!!

I guess sticking your head in the dryer is better than sticking it in the oven LOL. Since we have community dryers, I think my neighbors might think me a bit odd if I did that. But they already think I'm odd, so why not?
