Not So Good

When I was a kid in Winter Haven, we had a neighbor who used to say, "She's so far down she's reaching up to touch bottom."

Yeah. Like that.

I know. Things will change. They always do.


  1. And thank goodness for that!

  2. You've had to say some hard goodbyes lately. I'm able to get online only sporadically right now and wont be commenting much but please know I am thinking of you and sending love.

  3. Ugh. I'm so sorry. I'm on the way over with an Italian Spritz. I'll be in a pimped out AirStream. xoxox

  4. Sorry honey. I love you.

  5. Oh Sister Moon. I'm sorry that you are flying on one wing. I truly am. I'm holding your hand and thinking of you, okay? Please always know that I am along with legions of others.

  6. Remember-

    Been down so long it looks like up to me?

    Today in therapy, my therapist said I'm melancholy. That's it, melancholy! All the sadness in the world rolls over me sometimes...and I can't get up.

    XXX your NW friend.

  7. Well until I just read your post now I thought I was really down there in the deepest pit.
    We'll get back up, Ms Moon, of course we will.

  8. I hope that it gets better, but I understand the feeling. I really do.

  9. Birdie- For us all.

    Jill- Yes.

    Ellen Abbott- I am. I promise.

    Angella- And I am thinking about you. I know that what you're doing is not easy. Love you.

    Elizabeth- Could we just have martinis? Thanks, my dear.

    Madame King- And I love you too.

    GradyDoctor- You have no idea how much that does help. Thank you, sweet sister woman.

    Beth Coyote- Melancholy is a proper, precise word and one sorely underused today where we just label everything as "depression" and then maybe medicate. Melancholy is the valid emotional response to a whole lot of sadness.

    Sabine- It is true. We will.

    Syd- I know you do, dear man. I know.

  10. I'm sorry to hear that you're blue. It crushes me a little bit.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
