Depression Written by Mike Ross Same barn, different day “The courage it took to get out of bed each morning to face the same things over and over was enormous.” Charles Bukowski, You Get So Alone at Times That it Just Makes Sense RDP-Sunday–horses 40.040014 -76.262097 Lancaster, PA, USA 35 thoughts on “Depression” Mike, this is a beautiful portrait.

Because I somehow visited a village I planned. I just asked myself if I would be ready to live like this. First of all I started to think about that there’s nothing happening and it might be boring and that could be a reason why I couldn’t live like that. But then I thought that seeing things changing in your garden or just nature around changing on the whole would be enough. So, I can propose that depression is a state of mind that don’t give a person an ability to see any changes. Just things can’t do that. Maybe this sense was in the quote. I don’t know.
