What happened to me was immense, profound, and deeply personal. When I try to talk about it, it doesn't come out right. It doesn't touch it. The word birth has some rather painful personal associations for me, that I am not obliged to explain. So please, don't demand that I call what happened to me a second birth. It was certainly a complete renewal, a word that has much more joyous associations for me. I really don't feel comfortable discussing it here in this forum, sorry. It would oblige someone I consider a friend to pick it to pieces and I wish to avoid that.
