Tahira Nyabinghi writes: I have been depressed lately. I really can't put my finger on it, though I have tried to over the past few weeks.
I thought, being a raw head, that it was the German sprouts issue that was causing consternation but that proved fruitless. I then surmised that I was diminishing my salads and becoming bland in my efforts, this too eluded my grasp.
To date, I have yet to discover the culprit of my depression.
In all rights, I should be running around with a grin from ear to ear, pronouncing "I am losing weight my way!" the sun has been shining every day, except for one when we had showers, but even those two storms just added to the beauty of nature.
I got two healthy grades on some papers I turned in and kudos from my instructors. I opened my business downtown today with my partner and we will be introduced at a chamber meeting soon.
I still can't manage to smile or cry or do anything except sigh.
Possible reaction to something that I am eating? From time to time, I write poetry and this is my composition this evening.
I walk this solitary path alone.
First, by circumstance, then by choice.
Before I came to this plane, I was an Earth Mother.
In this world, I am still.
The beauty of spirituality,
the depth of knowledge,
the radiance of power.
All reside in each of us.
We must find what makes us whole.
I am where I should be.
I seek others to walk beside,
