100 cat drawings

for the last 3 months i have been suicidally depressed. this state has come and gone all of adult life, however, the last bout is the worst i have mired though in 10 years.

this friday, after the latest in what has been a typhoon of music business related humiliations, insipid health problems and religious and existential quandaries i was at the end my figurative rope.

leaving the 5th physician i had seen in as many days i was in a mania. in response, i decided to (see below) make 100 cartoon cat drawings, sell them for a lot of money and then buy a cool looking gun and shoot myself in the heart so i did not gross people i love out by my face being exploded.

i sat in the dark, lit a black destruction candle and a black san simon candle and started drawing.  when angela walked in the door, i said, “going crazy, drawing 100 cats.” she started laughing hysterically. it was the perfect response.

it took two days in three sessions, the first friday from 4pm to 4am, then saturday noon to 10pm, and then 1 am to 5 am. to keep from being lonely in my last hours alive on this earth, i watched movies the whole time.
