If you’re feeling down, read this.

It’s one of those pieces that puts the petty concerns of stuff like work issues and the little irritations of life into perspective. An everyday tragedy told with heartbreakingly brave and down-to-earth prose. Take ten minutes out of your day to read it and remind yourself about the crazy, random, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it luck of being alive on this planet and the joyful good fortune of having people around that you love and who love you. As the writer, Marion Coutts, says, “The project is to not go down.”
