life has become very hard for me and for people i know here. the slightest predisposition to depression becomes exaggerated and folks who would otherwise be industrious and creative start losing their drive.

i've been better off than most -- not because my finances haven't been destroyed (they have) -- but because i've had my interest in photography to entertain me on days that otherwise feel bleak.

... but it's not easy for me to keep even that up, and although i crave shooting daily, sometimes -- actually, most times, it seems -- i can't bring myself to go outside to shoot even flowers.

when i share links to pages that describe aspects of the financial crisis, people who comment express their sadness at what's happening there.

except for me, it's here.
