A bluesy day. However, the air is improving somewhat. This was the first day since last Thursday that the library was able to stay open all day. That's especially good since we weren't able to open at all on Friday and Saturday.

But I came home in a funky mood and I haven't been able to shake it. I found out on Sunday that someone from college had overdosed and died on Friday. He was there for me during a real rough patch in my life. I'm almost afraid to think of where I might have ended up without his smile and friendship. I adored him, though I'm sad to say that I'd lost track of him over the years. Turns out, he'd been diagnosed as bipolar - which actually explains a lot - about a decade ago and had been struggling to get it fixed in all this time. He'd spent a lot of the last year in the hospital because of it. The entire thing makes me so sad, because I have no idea if he ever realized just how important he was to me. I hope he did. The world is a lesser place for his not being in it.
