I’ve decided that the only way to break out of the depths of depression is to take back the simple joys of my life. There seem to have been so many things that have ganged up on me in my head that I’ve just been overwhelmed and unable to fight my way out of the shadows.
In looking through my photos trying to inspire some form of emotion I ran across the following photos…
I took this photo when my girls and I were out one beautiful fall day. I don't remember what I was doing, probably putting away garden tools for the winter, but the girls were hunting grasshoppers.
"Aha! I've got one!" says my Chloe... Whereupon she promptly starts trying to rub it out... with her body.
"Got'cha now you ornery little jumping, flying thing!"
"See mom! Right there! I'm a GREAT hunter!"
"You were right, SueSue. This is a great hunting place. Now let's do our break dance to thank the happy grasshopper hunting God..."
"We've got to teach these moves to mom. When she is blue it will make her feel so much better!"
Okay, mom, get down in the grass on your back and WIGGLE!!!"
Meanwhile... in another area of the ponderosa...
Life goes on...
Keep it simple, stupid!
