When a show I have directed ends it is often the thing that spurs a bout of depression with me, and the end of Hunting Of The Snark is no different for me. When I combine it with my current unemployed situation, the taking down I received from at least one of the Full Circle Theater founders (who made it clear that, since I hadn’t put $30,000 into the place I was not a decision maker… or even a recommender), and the cold I have also developed, I am considerably down for a Monday morning.

If I didn’t take my regular medication for depression it would probably be a lot worse… a depressing thought in and of itself. The rainy weather doesn’t help either.

I’m on my way to the store this afternoon to pick up necessary test-strips for my blood-test meter. Maybe a ride in the car will be a pickup.

  1. Hope you’re feeling better today.

    Best wishes,


    • Thanks Bic… wow! I’ve been sleeping all day (Nyquil high!) and just realized I haven’t blogged yet … and it’s after 3:00 PM. Got to get it together… I’m still here!

  2. Hi Bill, try not to let it all get you down. Add to all of that the fact that there is something about spring that seems to exacerbate depression, and you’ve got an uphill battle going on!

    Glad to see that you’re taking meds for it. There is nothing imaginary or psychosomatic about depression. It’s absolutely real and thankfully is now being treated as a medical illness.

    And forget the jerk who dressed you down. A jerk is a jerk, no matter the circumstance, no matter the season.

    My best wishes, Ramona
