I know the signs now, but the Black Dog of Depression is not far away. I'm struggling to keep it at bay and not let it find a way in. Searching for that "turning point" where all seems positive again. In bewilderment, I cannot understand why this happens, but it does and I feel the shadows approaching. I can't even begin to pray properly that it will end. Will recede.Will disappear!

So a wee prayer from you might help me get through today and the next few days to come. Thanks Blogland!

Not the praying type but my thoughts are with you.

Praying for you. And it's hard for the people who love you, so I'll pray for them too.

Wish I could bottle some California sunshine and send it your way, but, it is proving to be a bit evasive.

Hungry Soul

The stomach is full
the bed is soft and warm
but the soul
is oh so hungry
in the restless night
Everything seems so small
and so far away
the attendant murmur of age
mingles with the distant sound
of children at play
And little lights
almost in view
once cities of interest
now glow for a moment
only to fade
into the dull sameness
of what has been
The naive heart
enquires for purpose
in a frivolous void
of diversion
and the penitent
subconscious soul
confesses nightly
to the God

Fr Kenny said...

Thank you so much for that, Jimmy.
