Medicine for Melancholia

So much to do, so little time, so weary and weak

"We'll head out on Monday, spend the night in the next state, tour the park all day."

"Oh, not been there."

"Right, next day to the next state and the next park. Spend the night and take a couple of days to tour that park."

"Sure you can do this?"

Immediate response. "Sure, I'm fine. Just need to take my time and rest."


Weary. In body and spirit. The alleyways of the mind are dark and dank.

So tired.

"I'll be fine. Just have to rest a bit."

Keep trying. Take a pill. Eat. Get strong.

So, so, weary.
