Is There a Lawyer in the House?

Paul was convicted of ... misdemeanor A&B, I guess. His attorney did nothing. That Jane struck him, bit him, threw him down some stairs, and God knows what else, when he raised his hands attempting to deflect her blows (and who knows, how or in what manner this occurred, I wasnít there to witness this), the State of Massachusetts stepped in to intervene on the part of the woman, and he was the only one charged.

However, apparently they both have some kind of restraining thing. I canít remember what itís called. Suffice it to say -- whatever it is -- it's "against the law," Paul says, for them to come within 50-feet of each other. Or something to that effect. I wonder how long that will last?

Paul says he won't be able to return to his work as a nurse -- ever again -- because of the criminal (misdemeanor?) charges?

Heíll also be on probation for a year Ė so I guess Ė I have little to fret about. Heíll be there. Iíll be here. Maybe someone, or something will come along to intervene in the year between now and then Ė and Ė Iíll just hope ...

Iím just hoping Paul can pull himself together enough to figure out some new kind of career. Heís a certified tíai chi instructor. Can one work in any kind of health/wellness fields with a conviction?

I donít guess he could ever become a teacher ....

Iím also hoping, of course, in that ďpulling himself togetherĒ note, that he doesnít fall deeper into the downward spiral Iíve seen unfold around him in the last year ... which apparently now includes coke, crack, or some variation of same.

I guess I need to get to some meetings. Iíve got to keep my own ship afloat, and not invest any more of my precious lifeís energy and blood to try and keep his ship sailing, too.

I appreciate your Buddhist prayers, Jimmi. Paul is also a Buddhist. I canít remember which sect Ė but heís taken vows ... somewhere ... and was given the name of Karma Jentsen (sp?)

Maybe you should offer up a few prayers for him, too.

Now? Itís starting to thunder and rain. I think Iíll go for a walk.

Peace, Temmie
