The Therapy of Showers

It still is amazing to me how much my mood can be improved by something as simple as a shower. Even though yesterday I felt empty and disconnected and almost deaf, when I wrote a song and took a shower at 2am, I felt as though a weight had been lifted off me. The problems I had been obsessing over suddenly became manageable, and I felt more willing to do work I had been putting off.

It makes sense to me now how the dark ages must have truly occurred. It was not Christianity, or feudalism, but rather the sudden drop in daily showers after the Romans fell (taking their indoor plumbing and heating with them) that caused such sorrow, violence and ignorance. If only the concept of cleanliness was more emphasized, perhaps the world would have become enlightened much sooner…
