Yes, I am feeling depression often…
So many are — and we do many things to help it leave!
Vitamin D in the Pacific Northwest —
Not too much sugar!
But music is the best — clears out sluggish energy.
I have lots of kick ass dance songs and I get up and dance at my desk!
I’ve tried picking up a cat to dance with but damn they are not willing partners!
I hear my brother’s voice often in this mess… “SHIT!”
There are some good things in this awful crisis —
the NW Industrial Sanctuary, which is usually bustling with big rigs and tractors,
often if you open a window you may get diesel —
but now it is blessedly quiet and the air smells fresh and wonderful!
The cats have become enamored with the sounds of the birds and the squirrel —
we started feeding both on the loading dock roof.
The colors were so bright and clear and I love the juxtaposition of the orange bins
at CalBag with the bright blue Spring skies and the new leaves on the trees…
Out my window, drenched color.
So get up and dance — no excuses!
