I am always bemused by the fact that you find a relief from depression in tales of misery and horror, Sigi. It has quite the opposite effect on me. Does it truly make you feel better? It doesn't keep you depressed to dwell on the awful?

I do recall getting over my fear of death (to a large degree) by remembering my ancestors and picturing their worlds of plagues and looting and pillaging by rampaging armies. My people were serfs, and death was no stranger to them.

I am so grateful to live today. Whatever the ills of the modern world, I have to consider it an improvement over what my ancestors had to live with.

Is your experience something similar? Does it bring you to a recognition of gratitude?
