Favorite Videos: “So Long Marianne,” Leonard Cohen

First mood music track of the new year! I recently used this clip to describe two dear friends (Canadian and Australian, respectively) that sent me condolences and continued to touch base with me over the last few months as the disappointments — both national and personal — piled up.

Too often, depression is a beast that sits on top of you and leaves you flat on the linoleum, immobile and unable to verbalize exactly what’s happening in your brain. You look vertical but you’re not. You have the appearance of being functional while, inside, you’re trying not to unravel. Having friends who will just sit with you while that’s going on and wait for it to subside is invaluable.
