The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Morning blues (part two)

What got me out of that particular funk was a premise that had once or twice before caused an attitude adjustment: "You think you've got it bad?"

And I remembered Cathy Seipp, just now finishing out her term on earth, and the very last paragraph of the very last item she'd posted:

Amazing what can traumatize people these days. For me once it might have been the $7,000 plumbing bill I discovered today I need to pay. But really, all things considered, what's the point of being traumatized by something like that?

What, indeed?

Thank you, Cathy, and Godspeed.
