Down Under



I am too down to post.

Too sad to do funny- either funny.

I am not sure why.

It could be the Black Dog, paying me back, for keeping him artificially, at bay .

Or it could be the tears that I have not cried, over the death of my beloved Aunt.

Whatever it is, it has to run it's course.

I see the glimmer of light, struggling behind that cloud.

I have to believe it will shine again on me.

For now, it is too dark.

To believe, or see.

Sounds like a little "Dark night of the Soul" time! Most of us experience that from time to time. These two things I know.......God is good and He loves me (and you). Be blessed.

Mike said...

I think we all go through that from time to time Meggie. Just go with it. It's cathartic.

Catalyst said...

I don't think that's a light behind the cloud. I think the cloud is electrified. See the wires going into it?

Sorry you feel down, Meggie. Put on some Van Morrison and turn up the volume. That always lifts my spirits.

ancient one said...

Is it raining where you are? It rained off and on all day here. I think that makes me feel down, sometimes... What ever it is will soon pass.

Like your picture of the cloud, you can see the sunlight making its way back.

Shasta said...

I hope you feel better soon. You do need to take the time to grieve, then help yourself up - take a walk, treat yourself to a manicure or massage or a good movie, whatever it is that will help lift your spirits.

Thimbleanna said...

Hang in there Meggie. We'll be here waiting when you're ready.

Stomper Girl said...

Hope you feel better soon!

Christine Thresh said...

There is sun behind the cloud.
Beautiful picture.

Tanya Brown said...

I'm sorry.

I do think the sun will shine on you again, but sometimes depression just "is". It's almost as though the clouds have to come around once in awhile to help us truly notice the sunshine.

Jellyhead said...

Hope you get your 'happy' back soon Meggie.

Walks outdoors always help me. Hugs from small children. A movie you've really loved. A long talk with a friend.

Thinking of you fondly,
Jelly

Linds said...

Probably all of it. Be kind to yourself, Meggie, and don't bottle things up.

Maggie May said...

Oh Meggie....... I get like this from time to time. I hope you soon feel better. It is difficult at times like these to see the light at the end of the tunnel, but you will come out. Quickly I hope!

Jeanette said...

Ohh Dear Meggie, take time to grieve, then pick your self up dust your self down, and get out for a walk..
Hope your feeling happy again very quickly...Warm hugs, Jen

Ali Honey said...

Sometimes the sad and down is there to balance the good and happy .....sometimes it is inexplicable - I do hope it quickly passes.
Certainly take a short walk if there is some sun. Perhaps call your friend who stayed a while ago she was good for you and a laugh.
Thinking of you Meg, Hugs from Ali.

I hope that as the weather turns warmer the sun finds its way to shine on you.

Reluctant Blogger said...

I know the feeling well and know that nothing anyone else can say will really touch the spot.

But it'll pass - it's just hard to have faith in that at the time.

Big hugs x

Sheila said...

Whenever I fly somewhere I am always delighted that once you are above the clouds the sun is shining. No matter what storms rage below, above it all the sun is trying to get through.
I hope you are soon able to see the sun..
big hugs
xx

Thinking of you Meggie. Feel better soon!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

May the light shine through the clouds soon again and may your heart rise to nature's melody.

Lee said...

Hang in there, Meggie!

Kitty said...

(((((Meggie))))) ... I am proof positive that the clouds DO pass. Hang on in there hun. x

Catherine said...

I hope you feel the light again soon. Grief takes time to work through -- and sometimes just getting out in the air for a walk helps.

Mary said...

We visited Arlington where Keith's father is buried last week and just as we were drying our tears and getting ready to leave the sun shone through the clouds like in your photo. I found it very spiritual. I hope its light raises you up from the depths.

~Bren~ said...

Hugs to you Meggie. Tears can be very cleansing. Hoping you have a good release soon. You are in my thoughts!

Marja said...

Oh dear meggie I sent you some sunshine and some wind to blow the dark clouds away. You soon will feel better again Hugs and take care

quiltmom said...

Meggie, my friend,
Thank you so much for the funny emails and stories that you have sent me lately. They always make me laugh. I especially liked the one about the old couple and the bran muffins.
I will try and send you something back to tickle your funny bone.
Hang in there,
Regards,
Anna

Granny J said...

Here's to the day when the sun emerges from that dark cloud. Real Soon Now, I hope. You deserve the sunshine.

Alice said...

Dear Meggie - You have been such an inspiration to so many bloggers, with your comments and wonderful stories.

As the days lengthen, the weather warms, and the flowers bloom, take the time to see something lovely every day, treat it as a special gift sent just for you, and know that you are loved and worth every good thing that comes your way - even if you cannot see them at the moment.

Frankofile said...

I wish you comfort - all these staggeringly kind comments are a reminder of what is good.

I felt bad (physically) yesterday and today I am better. I am soooo happy. It's wonderful when the bad stuff goes. I hope it goes for you very soon.

Pauline said...

belief is for when you can't see... have faith in the light, meggie. sending hugs!

VioletSky said...

I am familiar with that feeling. And its inexplicableness. Allow yourself the time and space you need to let it move on.

Isabelle said...

So sorry - hope you're feeling more cheery soon.

Tanya said...

Hi Meggie. All of us are thinking of you. We all have those days and weeks when things just seem to get darker. By the picture you chose I can see that you know that it will change. We are waiting for you.

Lucy said...

What all the others said - feel better soon.

Pearl said...
