Blog therapy is the best kind of therapy. Its free! In all seriousness, thanks to all my commenters who make me realize that I'm not the only person in the world to feel miserable from time to time. You all are the seriously nice people.
I've been making sure to get plenty of outside time in the sunshine as of late, and it has begun the revitalization process to a healthier (mentally and physically) me. I am finally starting to have more energy and rigor. It could not have begun any sooner, as I needed it for this past weekend. We had tickets for this year's Thing in the Spring, ran by a good man with excellent musical tastes, Eric Gagne from Peterborough, NH. It was a non-stop fun fest. The weather was grand the whole time, we checked out the Broke Affordable Arts Fair and ate grapefruit and cantaloupe gelato in the park in between shows. My favorite show was Brown Bird, from Rhode Island, a folky duo that evoked the eccentric Peterboro-ians to break out and square dance (and other interesting forms of dancing) and even one fellow roller-skated around the city hall room while banjos, upright basses, and guitars strummed. A lot of hard work and effort goes into the whole ordeal and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to experience such fun times in a place where it feels mostly mundane 362 days of the year. 'Til next spring!
