Click Here to View:  Depression, the Secret We Share  by Andrew Solomon on TED.com
“The opposite of depression is not happiness, but vitality, and it was vitality that seemed to seep away from me in that moment.” In a talk equal parts eloquent and devastating, writer Andrew Solomon takes you to the darkest corners of his mind during the years he battled depression. That led him to an eye-opening journey across the world to interview others with depression — only to discover that, to his surprise, the more he talked, the more people wanted to tell their own stories. (Filmed at TEDxMet.)

A Note from the Poetry Editor

Categories: Poetry

It’s not Poetry Monday yet, but we’re posting this sonnet by our reader, Eugene Mahon, because of its timeliness. We’re all still saddened by this loss.

In Honor of Maxine Kumin

 

IN HONOR OF MAXINE KUMIN

Holding nothing back she wrote each line
Of verse as if it were her last, Frost’s
Advice taken to heart. “Sharpens the mind”
She might have said “to never think of costs
Only values”.  A line of verse is worth
Something if it surprises you with what
You thought you knew but didn’t until the birth
Came screaming through your thighs and caught
You unawares. All beauty must surprise
At first before the getting used to. Soon
Enough it becomes essential, life mere lies
Without it. This she knew for sure, a boon
She offered us in words life-seasoned, wise,
A vision’s reach beyond the grasp of eyes.

Eugene Mahon   March 9, 2014
