Ya know, I used to really like the night. It’s always so calm and relaxing. It’s a time when the heat of day recedes and friends come together to enjoy each other. The night was when I was truly alive.
Now my nights are full of sadness and uncertainty; loneliness and fear. My life has been in limbo for almost a year now. I finally have a good job, and I’m moving into adulthood — alone.
Some people are very comfortable being alone. They enjoy the silence and the time to themselves. I’m not one of them. I hate being alone. All of the things I’ve accomplished mean little to me because I have no one to share them with.
I love who I am. I may need to loose some weight, but I am fine with not being perfect. I like my personality and hope others do as well. I just wish I had someone to by me; to share the good times, and who I could hold during the bad times.
So far, my heart has been foolish. Hopefully it finds it’s way soon.
Goodnight. Hopefully, tomorrow will be better.
Someday, we’ll find it — the rainbow connection — the lovers, the dreamers, and me.Kermit the Frog
Off the top of my head, I can help with the Constitution question!
You can’t get any closer to the proceedings at the Constitutional Convention than to read James Madison’s notes, which he took during the debates all the way up to the signing on September 17, 1787. You can almost relive the convention just by reading some (or all) of them!
I picked up a book last summer called The Summer of 1787: The Men Who Invented the Constitution by David O. Stewart and have yet to read it, but it looks like it takes you through the debates in a non-fiction but novel-esque way. Looks like a good comprehensive read for all levels. This one is probably next on my list to read.
I’m in the middle (put aside but will get back to it) of a novel I bought online called Tempest at Dawn by James D. Best, which is a historical fiction novel of the Constitutional Convention and follows mostly James Madison and Roger Sherman through the debates and events, with a host of other important figures dropping in from time to time. It’s a great read so far, especially if you love historical fiction!
