In Praise of Melancholy

“My kingdom for someone to ride with.”

“Way out in Seatlle, young Kurt Cobaine . . . “

“Your joy is killin’ me.”

“Things are even worse here than they sounded.”

“It was a dark December.”

Those are all lyrics from the five songs I listened to the most in 2019, according to Spotify. Not at all happy. But they make me happy. What’s that about?

Melancholy is a gift.
