No good reason. First World problems or perceived problems ...or a slight drop in some level of chemical in my brain.
I cannot imagine what life is like for someone who daily suffers from the draining, bleakness of crippling, depression.
Why do we feel we must be happy all the time ? If we did feel happy all the time, would we need more and more "happy" to keep feeling the same level of happiness ?
Do our sad times help us to appreciate the happy times ?
When I feel "blue", I don't feel motivated to do anything, and I know that that lack of motivation then feeds on itself. I become more tired and feel less motivated to get outside : to DO anything.
BUT the dogs need to go for walks ... and so we head out into the fog.
and we go for a walk and I take the photos that you see on this page today.
I get outside of my head for a bit.
I look at droplets,
and flowers with insects on them.
I wander along the rocks, occasionally looking at interesting sticks, or shells, or rusted bits of detritus.
And of course I throw the ball for Wendy -- my GOOD "black dog".
And I watch as Sooki stands chest deep in the water, considering whether she should swim out to catch that Seagull that bobs so far off-shore.
And I smile.
Time to head home and play with Trey in the yard.
Then I'll sit down and share all this with you, and ask you how you cope when you feel sad ?
