St. Vito’s, the oldest church on the island. I was in there the other day, meditating, trying to bring myself out of a particularly dark mood. I thought of Johan August Strindberg’s comment: “When they say Christ descended into Hell, they mean that he descended to earth, this penitentiary, this madhouse and morgue of a world.”

I know these morbid moods pass. But in the depths of one it seems permanent.

"But in the depths of one it seems permanent"

It most certainly does.
Sometimes they pass so quickly and sometimes
they stretch on like a least favorite season?

And I really like this picture.
The woman on the balcony especially.

That church is beautiful.

Strange, how the moods do lift suddenly- It can be hard to see out.

I'm not sure how we became LJ acquainted, but I just wanted to let you know that I started reading. I'll try to catch up on the backstory.

Well put. I've been having a touch of the same, so I can somewhat understand how you're feeling.

mmm i think i understand. i wish you a belated birthday wish for a glorious year. this moment aside, there are many more and beautiful moments to come.

and, like strindberg, i have often considered this life the hell and, whether there is a place called heaven or no, the peace after this hell is welcomed.
