    Neither fantasy nor scifi are really much my cup of tea when it comes to fiction, but it's always good to be reading. It's a great thing to get into the habit of doing. I guess I'm not the only one who had a productive summer in reading.

    He's got a sequel to it, Children of Ruin, that is also pretty good. I'm about halfway through it thus far.

    It's always awesome to hear about new books. I'm definitely gonna have to give some of these a read! Especially Children of Time. It's impossible not to look into a book that involves giant, intelligent arachnids.

    No matter if you have depression or not it seems best that you have someone to talk to. A therapist would be best, but if not just a friend who can just stop, listen, and ask the right questions.
    I hope you feel better soon, and find your way out of this rut.

    I remember reading on your blog a few years ago about the troubles you had when you still had your archaeology major, and I'm sorry to hear you're still having problems. I can relate to them a lot.

    I'm not sure if you'd characterize some or any of what you've experienced as depression, but if you have, you'd really benefit from seeking help. I wish I had back when I was in school, I missed a lot of opportunities I would have otherwise seized.

    Maybe it's more of a general malaise? Whatever it is, you deserve better. Still, it can be interesting how life doesn't always unfold the way we'd imagine it. If it's less than what we imagined, it can be easy to give into despair.

    I know what you mean about the changing face of communities on the internet. I've always valued our community, even if I'm a fairly private and quiet person, but I still feel the sting too. Maybe there are different reasons, but many of us are uneasy about the shift of momentum to social media.

    It might also be worth saying that I think a lot of us 'discovered' therianthropy when we were fairly young. As we get older, some people get busy with their lives, or develop other interests. Still, I always wonder about the people I might have known, and I do regret not being more active and getting to know people better than I have.

    I've owed you an apology for a long time, but inertia works against us sometimes.

    Sorry to hear this. More things will come up, I'm sure! It will help to get out of your room more.

    But either way, it'll be alright.

    And yeah, I feel the sorrow over online communities fading out. It sucks. Trying to reverse it feels like trying to bail out the Titanic though.
