If I Felt Well, I’d Have Done Countless Different Things; Everything Differently

If I felt well, I’d have done countless different things, everything differently. I’d pack-up my belongings time and again, in a backpack to be thrown over my shoulder, hop on planes, buses and trains to nowhere, but somewhere; yet each stop would be temporary. I’d go to Europe to wander all over; take menial jobs […]
