I haven't been writing much lately. The silence first started as a trip to New Mexico, into the landscape, and a way from the computer. It was then followed by a bit of a depression. I get depressed or anxiety every so often. The other day I was thinking about this. I think the body -- all bodies -- have a need to close down at certain times. I think this is why people get physically ill or depressed. The body has to go into winter.
