depression

Posted to WritersAndGenres





Why argue the particulars . . .

When I get really depressed I try my hardest to wallow in it.

Johnny Cash, Tom Waits, Nirvana and Miles Davis are a must.

So are Bukowski, R. Carver, HST, Dorothy Parker and Hemmingway.

The only way I kick out of it is embracing it.

You get to a point where you see the absurdity of it all and just start laughing at yourself, or at least I do.

I would read the exploits of whores and drunks and criminals because it would make me feel worse, then better.
