I decided that the best way to get out of my funk was to read for a bit. I went to an on-line site that has "over 5,000 authors". Well, they might- but they are missing a few of the great ones!
There is no listing for:
Kipling (well, just one by him... but not the one I want)
They should advertise "over 5,000 authors you don't want to read". Then I wouldn't have wasted my time looking for things that don't exist on their site.
My bad mood just went to worse.
