    Awakening to  springs eqinox the
    sun yet to  clear the shadowed walls
    In the windows morning glow that I'm not ready for
    I lie still ....  awaiting another  fall

    You may have to go on without me though
    I whisper in surrendering  silenced
    As internal mechanisms  work thier
    magic ....chemicals of  imbalance

    Fight it  fight it  in my mind there's
    just that vacant echo to remind me
    One day one day I will know how
    to set these mornings free

    Yet theres always that echo even here  in
    the silence of a waiting day
    It  may as well be a bugle though
    for all it sends  my way

    Mariel Hemingway is on the Today Show discussing her depression.  Says she didn't know she was depressed till she wasn't depressed anymore.  Her partner mentioned the difference between running from crazy to running with crazy.

    She talks about the actual things she's done and does to get and maintain balance in  her life.

    "The Willing Way'' is her book about it.

    Really enjoyed this. Awesome.

    While here on this side of the world
    The snows continue falling
    I wish, oh how I wish
    That spring would come calling.

    This is what depresses me but just for now. Those who fall into deep depression I know their world is a constant struggle.
