Iced heart

Today has been my best day in weeks... felt slightly normal: look I'm blogging, albeit barely (no self-judgement, the load is heavy enough!).
Will never ever underestimate depression again, especially not in other people's lives... it's a terrible and debilitating illness that sucks the life out of a human being. It's an illness.
Carried a tune, with joy, as I left the shopping centre just now; it was where I took myself for dinner on my artist's date (another two good signs).

It was sleeting in Johannesburg today; the roads between Gauteng and KwaZulu-Natal provinces were shut down because of heavy snow and ice. It's freezing cold in this city; but I'm loving the cold and extreme moodiness of the weather; I value most the sharply jagged glimpses of sunshine.
And, with enormous anticipation, I look exceedingly forward to getting into bed with the electric blanket on 'roast' (pardon the over-emphasis).
