"Melancholy deserves to be differentiated from depression. It is not merely another word for sadness. I am fully aware that Freud described melancholy as a state of dejection and that elsewhere it has been described as mourning that has failed to be resolved. My personal definition of melancholy is that it is a contemplative period–a period that may includeelementsof sadness withoutbeingsadness. It is a necessary decompression of the spirit, an introversion. It may be darker, but it is a thoughtful time. It is not an abyss. Neither is it pessimistic. It is the moment before the phoenix rises again. A rest, a respite."

As you are now, in this moment, you will never be again...
