Mad Hatter Ep. 7 & a 2: Sadness

Can you believe I'm back already? Neither can I. It must be an illusion of the day.

Yes, it's a mad hatter episode, a rather strange one seeing as it's all about sadness. Yes, that's right, sadness. I'm feeling sad and decided it was the perfect time to talk about that subject. WARNING: this show therefore has the potential to induce sadness in the listener. Please don't listen if you don't want to be thinking about such things.

This is a completely unedited episode. One take, beginning to end, nothing changed or cut. Ay karumba!

I mention Sarah, the Witch of Forest Grove and the Society for Creative Anachronism. And sadness. There's a whole lot of talk about sadness. I also attempt to sing at the end a very old song called Three Ravens, here's the wikipedia link to its history (though the lyrics I know are slightly different).

Loving hugs to any and all who need one.

    Thank you for this, Saturn! I’m still behind on listening to your previous episodes, but I listened to this one today and thought it was wonderful. It’s so nice to hear someone approach sadness with something other than “how do I get rid of this?” And no, I didn’t think it was too weird for a podcast, or a horrible downer, or anything like that. :) Again, thank you for putting so much of yourself into the episode and offering such wonderful observations.

    Blessings, Oraia

    I didn’t think this was a depressing episode at all. In a fairly contented state right now, it didn’t bring me down in the least. It seemed to me that it might actually go the other way and bring me up had I been sad, just knowing that, feeling that sad people aren’t alone. This episode in that sense is bolstering supportive. Sad song though, risked tears, it did, but then i like sad songs for that very reason.

    Thanks for the feedback, JEA, I really appreciate it. Especially since it was impossible for me to tell at the time, being so sunk in sadness, to even guess at how others would take it.

    Most of the time I remember that honest sharing of deep emotion is important and healthy and, depending on how done, that applies to both sides of the conversation, but I wasn’t sure it would work in this case. So again thank you (and Oraia!) for the confirmation.
