Ain’t no body gettin’ a free ride in this lifetime.

Not me. Not you. No one.

Gullible stated in a comment :

You are where you have wanted to be for some time and will soon be visiting one of your most favorite cities. You have Patti with you. You are older than the mountains yet you continue to travel internationally in some questionable areas.

You still have your wits about you, even if the occasional name slips your mind for a bit. You are following your calling. You continue to write interesting posts on two blogs that are filled with photos.

You have apricot jam and Snickers.

Now, tell me why you are swinging into a depressive state?

I am so sorry to tell you this Gullible, but your question has no answer.

Its all been written about. Its all been very  well documented.

Well documented? The following book comes-to-mind.

‘When All You’ve Ever Wanted Isn’t Enough: The Search for a Life That Matters’  is a book by Harold Kushner, a Conservative Jewish Rabbi. Doesn’t the title say-it-all?

Well documented?

The following human being leaps-into-the-forefront-of-my-mind : Robin Williams.

Why oh why Robin? You had it all. Fortune. Fame. The world loved you. The world idolized you Robin.

This is IT for now. No more talk of this nonsense.

To quote our friend Simon : I am going to stop wandering the streets of my mind.

I’m going back to work. Damn the torpedoes. Do you want to live forever?

So to others engaged in the challenge of depression I say : IF I can walk through it, maybe you too will be able to do so.

Over and Out.

    Hi Cap,
    BTW, have you/did you make contact with Simon again? I know you were close but can’t remember if you were still in touch with him?

      NO. I have NOT had any contact with Simon. In fact, no one that I know, who knew Simon, and some of these mutual-Simon-friends were VERY VERY CLOSE to Simon, has had any contact with him in some years now. Baffling. Absolutely and totally baffling. We sure miss him. He is one very VERY BRIGHT light and so much fun to be with. Thanks for your comment and interest ‘Zilla. Cap

    Cap, Robin Williams had some problems such as addiction, but his decision to leave this world had more to do with a recent medical diagnosis than his demons. He had Lewy-Body dementia, akin to Alzheimer’s, but with a shorter (still fatal) span and with lots of hallucinations. It is a disease I became very familiar with some years past. Had I received his diagnosis, I would do likewise.
