Thanks Womby.

I take it you read the book? I read it when I was really depressed years ago. It cheered me up. I thought, "Hell, I'm not that depresed."

Bob, back in those days I was listening to old Cure and Joy Division, reading Burroughs and Bukowski amongst other cheery chappies, favourite viewing Eraserhead. I remember reading "The Man Without Qualities" by Rober Musil. I used to quip that he had written my autobiography before I was even born. My dress code was so drab I reckoned navy blue was a bright colour. Misanthropic, manic depressive paranoid shizophrenic, I'd have had to cheer up considerably to reach suicidal. Of course the payoff is that the best music is usually miserable, happy can be so trite.

You ever hear a Paul Butterfield album "Sometimes I Just Feel Like Smiling" ?

Hell, you just have to grow up eventually, at least to some degree. The Wombet still hasn't left me, she loves the boat and being on her as much as I so its kind of hard to hang onto "oh woe is me for I am lost" especially when the supposed tragedies in my own life have been largely of my own making.

Some people, old friend, have good reason to feel down now and then. They are not just self indulgent duffers like me.

Womby:
I loved Eraserhead. Must have at least tried to watch it several times.
I've never been a depressed sort of guy. Read NAKED LUNCH between marriages 36 years ago. I've always been pretty happy go lucky and cavalier about things that others get down about. Spike's death changed that. We should talk on pm's. I have news.
