It will be sunny one day

PropsOn this rainy Los Angeles day, I thought I’d post a link to this wonderful letter from actor Stephen Fry, to a depressed fan.

Here’s an excerpt:

I’ve found that it’s of some help to think of one’s moods and feelings about the world as being similar to weather:

Here are some obvious things about the weather:

It’s real.
You can’t change it by wishing it away.
If it’s dark and rainy it really is dark and rainy and you can’t alter it.
It might be dark and rainy for two weeks in a row.


It will be sunny one day.
It isn’t under one’s control as to when the sun comes out, but come out it will.
One day.

The letter is from my new favorite blog, Letters of Note which collects letters, from, er, notables.
