Coming back to mom’s home from a day of solitude… I had booked a hotel room to spend some time with myself.
Spent time swimming for an hour in the pool, went to the beach, spent some time listening to music.
Looked at the green foliage around and wondered what it did to me? Felt sad and bitter. These are the days when the dosage of my anti-depressant medicine has been increased.
We look before and after,
And pine for what is not:
Our sincerest laughter
With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought
