The other day I spaced out and ended up near work a bit early the other day, so I wandered around and took pictures. In direct contravention of my usual position on these things, they were mostly horizontal.
People say that depressives respond better to times of great trouble, given that they always feel bad. While I want to reassure you that this is absolutely false, I have been looking at all of this collapse in a fairly abstracted way.

Some good yard-cats I have seen.
Boxes I have known.

I need a place for images that do not invoke man’s inhumanity to man or suggest that your father has been reading Dante.
