Down in the Dumps

Where I come from, when one is feeling low they might say they’re down in the dumps. Now the dumps can be a mighty sad place to be. We throw our trash into the DUMPster. It’s hauled away to the DUMPground, where it’s unceremoniously DUMPed into massive holes and covered up along with the trash of others.

I’ve been to the dumps. I’ve hauled detritus from a derelict house, parts from an old truck, the carcasses of unfixable motorcycles. And I have to say I’ve never found the dumps terribly depressing. Instead, I think they might be a place where the slate gets wiped clean.

Today I found myself feeling a little unloved, unnoticed, unappreciated. I’d almost say I was down in the dumps. Except that would be a happier place than what I was experiencing.

This too shall pass.

  1. Oh, no, my friend. Hope you find some beauty in the dump. The mossy tires look like fairieland in your dump. I love you, so you see, there’s nothing to be sad about. Hugs.

  2. Those days are the worst. Take a walk. Breathe in the fresh air. Treat yourself to something that makes you smile. Snuggle with Gracie. Sometimes those moments when we feel like everyone around us is overlooking us, we need to remember to not overlook ourselves. *Hugs* I hope today is better than yesterday!
