Hello patient readers.
I took a bigger break than I thought. The thing about depression is it can be sneaky and it can be crippling and it can take a long time to notice that you are there. I’m not really out of the woods if I’m honest.
But! I’ve been thinking about Malcolm Gladwell’s “The Outliers” because I’m reading it for the first time and it gives me hope that the strange and diverse situations in my life are preparing me for something particularly.
It’s been hard for me to Make Art lately. In fact, it’s been hard for me to do anything but play World of Warcraft without intense obsessive compulsive thoughts and behaviors kicking in. It’s this time of transition where so much is up in the air: the direction of my job, where I’m going to live, the situations of the people around me.
So, you know what? I can’t do that anymore right now. I have to care about things, and make things, and sing things and I’m not sure how I’m going to do that yet, but what I do know is I need my fellow Leaguers… so the treehouse is open again! ❤
