It's rare that I'm truly impressed with the quality of writing in Seattle's alternative weekly newspaper, The Stranger, but the cover feature this past week really hit home. Megan Seling wrote a powerful piece about baking cookies to deal with winter depression, titled, "The Long Winter". It's a very enlightening look at depression from the point of view of someone who has to deal with it, and the Seattle/Everett setting makes it all the more real. And the writing style kind of reminds me of my friend [livejournal.com profile] kadyg: wry and sardonic and very wise. (That's a compliment, Kady!)

But what's most interesting is... lately, I've been thinking about baking cookies.

Seriously. (For proof, see this comment I made in my friend [livejournal.com profile] kennapea's journal on Nov. 26th)
