“Yep. The Depression Gene Has Set In.” -Mom

Grey and drizzly,
and I feel the same way inside.
As usual, little explanation
and plenty of speculation
on causes and effects
of the drizzle inside.
Naps help,
as do hot cups of chocolate
but this is a day
where I lay in a ball
covered in blankets, dressed in browns
and my snow-white shawl
and just stare.
Occasional thought flickers by.
I can’t tell how much time has walked past me.
I am productive today;
I can make a list of things I did
to contribute to the world today,
but I feel like a standing-still stream
that never looks like it’s moving
’till you stare at it long enough.
I hope it won’t last long,
but I don’t care if it lasts forever.

About The Original Kate

Along with artistic tendencies, Kate enjoys unusual people and is constantly striving for some sort of nonconformity. Kate offers a perspective that is thoughtful but well-written and full of images within the words. Other tidbits that might intrigue: she has very long auburn hair, and, you guessed it, her favorite color is orange.

  1. *ounces upon ounces of sympathy*

    I have been feeling like that for a week. I love you, it will go away soon, or so I hope (for the both of us)…

    I hope you are feeling better about things soon.

    • A little better today. My allergies are acting up, and thus my nose and the little bridge underneath sting because I’ve been blowing my nose so much. It’s still drizzling and even bothered to snow just a little bit when I left for my half-hour lunch (which should be an Olympic sport, the half-hour lunch). But a very cynical sense of humor has set in, and I’m relatively light-hearted today. J and I are going to school/church social function (called Institute- a lot like Seminary, if you remember- only not early morning and for college students) where we get free food and get to play games with other married couples who we’ve never met before. I’m excited.

      Thanks. I need all the love I can get.
