Weekly Photo Challenge: Change

When I saw the bridge in Michelle’s post announcing the theme for this week’s photo challenge, I immediately knew exactly where it was taken because I once moved from New Jersey to Philadelphia. I’ve had quite a few changes of location: New Jersey, New York, New Jersey, back to New York again, Quebec, Canada, New Jersey, Philadelphia, New Jersey yet again, New York, Maryland. That’s only naming states and provinces and doesn’t count moves among cities within a state. Furthermore, those changes in location have often been accompanied by other changes, changes in career, in marital status. So, I tried to think of my most recent life change and that would probably be being diagnosed with depression. I tried to think of an image that would represent that.Small, blue pills - zoloft.

So I took a photography of the pills that are supposed to help with that. Then I started wondering if I had any other mind altering substances around my house.

A catnip leaf and stem.

I found some catnip that we grow on the window sill. It doesn’t affect humans, but it certainly alters cats’ minds.

A glass of rum.

In the back of the cabinet, I found a bottle of rum.

Anti-depressants, catnip, rum, these are things that change moods.

  1. I am sorry you are depressed. Sometimes I am too but i find blogging has helped me a great deal. Kathryn

      Thanks for the kind comment. I was at my worst about a year ago. I’ve gotten much better since. Blogging does help.

      Thanks for the concern. One problem with having someone on the internet hurt your feelings is that there’s no one to turn to. Most of my “real life” friends don’t use the internet that much.

        I completely understand and have few friends. Kathryn
