Okay. I’ve been hurting real bad lately. So I decided I’d do one of those ‘reflections’ posts, just to express some of the thoughts I have in between the moans and groans. But then the painkillers kicked in…
Over the rainbow, I am crazy,
Bars in the window.
There must have been a door there in the wall

Having suffered from both depression and addiction issues for many years myself, I’ve been having a very hard time trying to think objectively about the death of this wonderful man.

Last night I watched the 2nd episode from the 3rd season of another show that really excites and engages me – TNT’s Perception. I wrote about it a year ago as well (in a post that also went almost completely unnoticed) and its longevity has surprised me even more that of Continuum. And yet here I am, writing about it again. Hell, maybe you do have to be crazy to get it, but there’s apparently crazy enough to go around!
