Depression has a way of flipping my perspective. When I’m in its grasp, it’s like no matter how hard I try to appreciate the beauty of the roses, I only feel the bite of  thorns. No, I don’t feel sad. No, I’m absolutely not suicidal. But there are times,…

Nearly thirty years ago, nearly half my lifetime ago, my father died of lymphoma. I was twenty-nine years old and dumb as a post, emotionally, at least. But I thought I was all grown up. I was about to graduate engineering school and go to work in the…
