“I want to pull myself out of this hole I’m in,” I said to my friend therese photo upTherese Borchard, a smart, funny, brave woman who writes the blog Beyond Blue.

She kindly pointed out that she’d conducted an interview with me a while back. called 18 Ways to Fill The Hole in the Soul, where I’d claimed to know how to pull myself out of the blues.

Apparently I sort of know how to do this. I’m going to follow my own advice, written at a time when I was feeling strong and clear-headed.
