Lassitude, the blues, or …


Going with the flow.

It has long intrigued me that “out of the blue” and “for no reason” one can all of a sudden be deeply blue. I have never figured out what combination of elements causes its onset, nor why this lassitude or blues goes away as quietly as they come – and again for absolutely no visible reason.

I only know that life is a series of ups and downs and that in between one is either on the way up or on the way down: static isn’t a real state, nor is stable, nor yet again “forever”.

One learns to simply go with the flow – the blues end, as do any extreme bouts of happiness (and lucky me, I have even experienced those). The highs, the lows, it’s all ebb and flow.
