  1. I know I'm going to regret this but I can't figure out what the picture is? This seems just like a very sad and not an uplifting post to me.

  2. sending a virtual back rub. Like Thom, I don't know what the photo is -- and I'm not certain I want to know!

    You want some stress relief? Go to Barnes & Noble and pick up Ilona Andrew's newest book, Magic Strikes. I just finished reading it and it ROCKS!

  3. Very creative!
    Suppressing! Squashing! Distressing!

  4. I loved the poem,very creative.

    But I'm very anxious to find out what the picture is!
    And I hope you're not under a lot of stress or something?

  7. I feel you.
    People who don't experience depression tend not to understand these types of feelings. They think you can just "change your mind." But sometimes it ain't that easy. Most of the time in fact.

  8. That is a perfect representation of tension and/or stress. I read your explanation, and I can see that the poem was truly inspired. I'm so sorry that you're in such an unpleasant situation. I've been in similar, and if it is possible for you to get out, I encourage you to do so. I know that it's not as easy as wishing it to be so, so I pray that doors will open up for you that will give you the opportunity for escape.

  9. Thom: I am sorry I was so depressing but it was all I had in me at the time.

    Quilly: Thanks for the heads up. You know where I am going today.

    Blossom: I like the squashing and maybe some squishing.

    Jientje: Yeah, mucho stress, but I will live despite my melodrama.

    Doug: I’ll just start a new day and keep moving in the proper direction. Thanks.

    TTWC: Thank-you for your sympathy.

    Cynthia: Pretty butterfly. Love the iridescent blue.

    Lily: Yeah. The only thing that helps is to know it will eventually pass – and the kind words of friends.

    Cherie: I do plan to get out but I really like the people I work with which is very rare so I am torn. I’ve been around long enough to know the grass is not greener on the other side, usually just different.
