Wow, blairette, you have restored me to community-posting after a chasmic lapse.
I have been glooming about being so useless to friends who are depressed or distraught (not at all looking at anyone in particular), because, you know, I've been there, I should know what to say. But I don't. Sometimes I don't even know what *not* to say.
So, do you guys think seeing/hearing "tragedy" in the semi-traditional sense provisions any kind of a "catharsis" (whatever your personal reading of that is) of emotions of pity and fear?
I'm not a goth, so this isn't a goth rant, right??
Incidentally, listening to Marlene Dietrich singing about how sie kann lieben nur, und sonst gar nichts hasn't exactly been uplifting....I wonder if there's a community at liebeskummer already
*goes to look*
