Come to think of it the shver could use a better gardener bichlal. I wasn't that impressed with the landscaping if I recall.

Slipping, been doing it a lot lately. (haven't really had the chance in quite a while, but I do where I am presently)

Falling, I feel that I am no where near it, I will do everything (call or meet someone and surrender, etc.) not to be on the side of "I fell" again.

There are two things here, one is that slipping will eventually lead to falling.

The thing I'm more intereted in is I need to stop slipping, because slipping itself is falling (no?).

As I asked my good nameful friend today, "is the whole difference between slipping and falling, a mere few inches of the body?!"

So I hereby declare that I am giving up, giving up to try and not desire to slip, not desire to look. I know that when the desire comes I cannot overcome it, So I ask Hashem (not only in writing, I will do so verbally) to please keep me Real. "I'd rather deal with life, than "enjoy" slipping".

P.S. Has anyone else had similar experience?
