Hi Nick

Interesting that you mention St John of the Cross. I only know about him because TS Eliot wrote about him and Eliot would have been seriously depressed by our standards. OTOH Eliot drank a fair bit, smoked, and ended his life on barbiturates.

You ever read East Coker, from the "Four Quartets"?
The second part of East Coker is the most wonderful thing, all about spiritual despair and stuff.

Eliot was asked by Auden why he was always playing patience, and he replied 'I suppose it's because it's the closest thing to being alive'. (The intended word is the opposite of 'alive')
