I'm very sad that noone showed up this time around. For a group that
was so dynamic and energenic, it seems we've completely lost any
initiative, nor can we seem to get together. This is very hard for me.
I'm used to having a large number of people within my inner circle, but
at this point, I'm very lonely. The kids are all gone. My career in
Pharmacy is crushing me and leaving me alone and underfunded. The
computing people seem to have pushed themselves into hibernation. I
truth, I had hoped to be out of the country by now and living in Israel.
Instead, I'm stuck here much longer than I anticipated, and with the
robbery in my house, my assets are shrinking down to zero.
When I first moved to this apartment, I made sure that the place could
handle NYLXS engagements. NYLXS tech meetings had provided a great
background for joy and intellectual expansion, and we had a wonderful
tradition. But nothing I do seems to work out right at this point, and
I'm spinning into depression. Nobody even picks up the phone.
I wish I knew what to do.
