In the words of Neo: 'Whoa!':)You're right about much of it. The trick is being able to cghnae your mindset until you can think like that. Sometimes we as humans get so good at wrapping failure and negativity around us like blankets. Too often we want to be further into the future (ie. better) than we are; or we remember only what we've done wrong in the past. Faith (in its fullest meaning), I suspect, has a lot to do with it. It's something I've lost a lot of recently. Something I plan on regaining.I love your application of the concept to the line on the page. Freedom or confinement with every stroke. Hmmm... Gonna have to think some more about that one!Cheers,

The causative organisms of acute bacterial sinusitis are similar to those of acute otitis media. They include Streptococcus pneumoniae (30% to 40% of clinical isolates), Haemophilus influenzae (20% to 30%), Moraxella catarrhalis (12% to 20%), and Streptococcus pyogenes (up to 3%). Other pathogens, found less frequently, include other Streptococcus species, Staphylococcus aureus, Neisseria species, and gram-positive and other gram-negative bacilli.
Fungi are most commonly observed in immunocompromised and diabetic individuals. Anaerobic infections may occur in chronic sinusitis or with dental disease. Clinical studies in children with sinusitis are rare, because of the difficulties in diagnosing sinusitis in this age group. In the few pediatric studies published, the pathogens cultured from children with acute sinusitis and subacute sinusitis are similar to those of adults. The predominant pathogens isolated from pediatric patients with chronic sinusitis are Streptococcus pneumoniae, Moraxella catarrhalis, Haemophilus influenzae, and anaerobes.
