Chapter 6

Some of us get depressed once in a while -- or all of the time -- and it's hard to get things done.

If you've never been depressed, it feels like exhaustion. You just can't take another step, read another page, fold another towel. You're just shot, and if you've never been shot and don't know what it feels like, you're not working hard enough.

My way of dealing with it is to move down the priority ladder until I find something that's trivial enough to engage me. Right now I should be talking to Real Estate people. Right now, no way. But I'll bet I can do some laundry or take the grips off the old handlebars and maybe even get the handlebars off.
That would be fun, relatively.
