And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking

I'm taking another hiatus from the blog. I don't seem to be able to keep up well with classes I'm teaching and classes I'm taking. This is the first full-time teaching semester I'm also working on coursework for a master's in philosophy...and all of my writing time is devoted to finishing papers in those classes. No time for the blog this semester. Sorry. I'm just so sure you'll miss it. Title reference here.

Still too busy to get stuff done. I want to talk about it.

Article: Talk Therapy Pivotal for Depressed Youth

A talking cure for depression called cognitive behavior therapy appears to cancel the risk of suicidal thinking or behavior associated with taking antidepressant medication, according to the most comprehensive and long-running study to date of depression treatment among adolescents.

Well, sure. But talk therapy is so much more darn difficult than medication! And insurance doesn't like to cover it. Darn.
