Sunday the 26th: That's That for That!

9th Street, Near the Boardwalk, Oceanfront Virginia Beach Virginia

My most recent acute depressive episode met it’s end on October 16th…it was about two months long.

Happy Birthday to Me!!!  The first birthday in many years that I have not been depressed.

The first month after an episode is a fragile time for me.  But, I think I’ve done well the past week not taking on too much too soon.  

My primary focus has been self care, especially exercise, rest and mindfulness.

One day at a time.

As a child, I remember being fascinated by everything around me.  I took to drawing early, trying to capture those things.  My earliest remembrance of this fascination is from elementary school.  Instead of paying attention in class, I went about trying to recreate a design I saw on a hand-woven bag.  My creativity has waxed and waned since then.  As I grew up and became aware of cameras, my interest shifted from drawings to photos.  It never evolved beyond pointing and shooting however.  And just as I lost my passion for drawing and “less than amateur” photography, I lose my desire to write from time to time.  I am almost certain it is related to my instability.  So on days like this, when I’m speechless and lacking or time simply eludes me, I’ll share instead one of my photos in hopes to somehow keep my diminished creative flow from dying altogether.
