Sage: 56 months

This post is late, as they all have been lately. This post is also going to be very short.

This has not been an easy month, for many reasons. I have been struggling, very heavily, with depression. The more sinister aspects of it, too: self-loathing, despair, and the accompanying physical and mental fatigue.

There are times that I feel like I’m a whisper in a storm; other times that I’m a powderkeg levee. There are so many things I want to try to explain, but I don’t have any idea how to begin.

My advice for you this month: listen to children. They see things more clearly than adults, a lot of the time. The lessons we “simplify” to try to teach them? That’s what we should be teaching ourselves.

Be who you are, Sage. I have not been very good at taking this “simplified” advice, myself, and I regret it. Be who you are.

I love you to the edge of the universe and back. So does your mother. You’re the bright shining spot in my days; you are my sunshine.
