First Melancholy Cure


Tomorrow I am having lunch and taking a train ride in the mountains with some friends from work. No doubt we will also find time for a stroll in the woods. I expect to satisfy four of the six curative categories from The Anatomy of Melancholy:

Diet: good food at a mountain inn
Air and environment: cool mountain air and scenic beauty
Exercise of mind and body: an invigorating stroll with pleasant companions
Rectification of passions and perturbations of mind: cheerful conversation

Onward!
