Are your guts falling out, nerves exposed? Are you having wild thoughts that strange things are growing out of every orifice and wonder if your joints can bear the weight? Maybe you walk through the door at the end of the day declaring how exhausted you are. If so, it may be well past time to give yourself a break.
These were the helter-skelter and somewhat irrational thoughts that raced through my mind as I stepped out onto my patio garden and noticed this rotting planter.
It made me laugh. After spending this past few months in hibernation myself, I realized this planter really did reflect why I needed to sleep for most of the winter. I felt overwhelming reluctance to get up. Anyone who has experienced this knows how diabolical it is to be depressed.
