what was it like out on the ice?
hard to say
I haven't ever much liked the "Self Psychology" formulated by Heinz Kohut, and I think it's had seriously negative consequences for a culture that's largely never heard of him, but has been affected (infected?) nonetheless by some of his ideas about narcissism. However, this book -- Releasing the Self: The Healing Legacy of Heinz Kohut -- looks extremely interesting in that it recasts Kohut's project in relation to other schools of psychoanalytic thought that were emerging around the same time. Kohut's major work appeared in the 1970s.

Chapter One
Rage, Shame
and Presymbolic Dread

"...the attempt to describe disintegration anxiety
is the attempt to describe the indescribable."

How Does Analysis Cure?
Heinz Kohut

"The terror arises not from a presence (of an impulse or feeling) but from an absence -- a crack, a fissure in the mind. We may be reminded here of Balint's (1968) 'basic fault', a term suggestive of a structural metaphor of a building with a flaw within its foundations. Under stress, the fault gives way and a cleavage appears. It is this hole, this nothing, which creates panic and incommunicable agony. The deepest dread may be invisible and scarcely expressible in words." [p. 2]

Releasing the Self:
The Healing Legacy of Heinz Kohut

Phil Mollon

It changes one to go through this experience. It change me, and I am still changing. It's not over. Is it ever? What am I becoming? I don't know. Many never make it through at all. Never find the door, the key, the saving grace of compassion for themselves, for the world, for the desperation in the eyes of others. If they live at all, such broken souls -- and they are all around us -- are often said to have "the ten-thousand yard stare." Is what they're seeing a delusion? To answer that, you need to know what isn't. And you can't know that. It's a fruitless question. To live here is the bodhisattva way. To stay, seek no return. To understand there is no way back. No past, no future, nothing doing. Look in my eyes. You see? So here we are out on the ice. My warmth is your warmth. Huddle closer. Soon enough it will be night.

I'll be the rainbow when the sun is gone
wrap you in my colors and keep you warm

that's how strong my love is
that's how strong my love is
that's how strong my love is
that's how strong my love is

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
