First Readings - Kait Rokowski - “A Good Day”
“Depression is a good lover. So attentive. Has this innate way of making everything about you.”

Are you stuck? Get unstuck: Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. Go for a walk. Read something. Shift your mind. It helps to create a quick goose.
