Magic in the Land of Depression?

Sometimes depression is too much with you.  When you see your spouse struggling in the darkness, when you see yet another notice of a suicide, when you hear another story of someone trying to make sense of the depression in their loved one, you just want to scream, “No more!”

And then I remember a quote.from Roald Dahl, the children’s book author.  It reminds me that you can never lose sight of the magic of hope.

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.  Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.  

Perhaps great secrets to living are hidden in the unlikely place of depression in the people who cross our paths.

Here’s to another day of searching for those secrets and being open to the magic.
