I called Jenny while I was crying but she didn't answer.

So I called Jeremy. He picked up the phone.

I said, "Jeremy, I'm crying."
His immediate response: "I'm here for you. What do you need?"
Me: "I'm sad."
"Hello, sadness."

Which was the most perfect response and he basically sat with me while I felt my sadness. He asked me how sadness felt like? I told him it felt like helplessness and vulnerability. And he said those are different feelings. Do you think that's sadness? Is that part of sadness? So he made me sit with it for a while.

He said the whole country is depressed. Our energy is depressed, our activities are depressed. I asked him how he was, and he said, "Happily depressed."
