Depressive Monty Don...

On DESERT ISLAND DISCS the gardening guy Mony Don talked about his intense sufferings from depression, and I  felt quite admiring of him. His descriptions of feelings very familiar to me were spot-on, but not at all whiny.
It's a shame more 'pull yourself together'-type people don't listen to Radio 4. 
I know it must be a difficult thing to understand if you've never experienced clinical depression, but so many quite intelligent people are still so dismissive of it as lead-swinging, self-indulgence,etc. 
Monty D also pleasantly surprised me by selecting Son House's recording of JOHN THE REVELATOR, a great favourite of mine, as one of his desert island numbers. Right on!
I'm actually drawing a bit today, thank God, and, heaven help me, quite looking forward to tonight's BIG BROTHER eviction. The most boring ones are Susie, Michael. Imogen and Jennie, I reckon, although the latter might still perk up. So one of them should go.
Nice day, actually. This is proper summer weather, if we have to have summer at all...
