Kokoro Is Blue


Where to start?  At the beginning, I suppose.  My name is Kokoro, and this blog is about me and my journey in living with depression.  We’ll try to stick with just the facts, and as little hubris as possible.  Of course my name isn’t really Kokoro.  It’s a concept and idea in Japanese that I find suitable.  It doesn’t translate well to english; a good approximation I suppose is “heart” or “spirit”.  It is basically the essence of personhood – what makes each of us human.  Thus, my decision in using it as my nom de plume, such as it is.

It’s not easy to write this.  Most things that are worthwhile to do aren’t, I’ve come to find.  At any rate, welcome to my journey.
