Been dealing with a lot of depression lately. I don’t know what else to say other than it’s just terrible. It really takes over your life. Sort of makes you numb to everything. Perpetually unexcited or motivated. Tried to capture that somewhat here.
The speck in that band there is the famous shot of the Earth as “pale blue dot—what it looked like from the Voyager 1 probe (the one w/ that famous gold record) on February 14, 1990, from 3.7 billion miles away. I was on the Earth when this photo was taken. While I don’t remember any details of that particular day offhand, it seems a reasonable guess that my problems seemed important. Sometimes even now when they seem overwhelming I try and imagine what they might look like from here.
