How to Fight the Darkness

I’m just coming out of a bit of a dark spurt (it happens). Among the things that help: running for my buddy, Thor, who cheers me on and keeps me going through the group I Run for Michael; writing; reading (just finished Much Ado About Nothing in the bath – with BUBBLES!); and good old fashioned creative fun – especially when it has to do with one of my favorite fandoms.

I laughed today for the first time in over a week, and couldn’t help but to smile from ear to ear while watching this Hillywood Supernatural Parody. These girls are incredibly talented and I’m so grateful for what they’ve put together – though they’ll never know what it did for me. Watch it. You will not be disappointed.

I can’t stop watching this. (<– Click Here to see the parody that will have you beaming from ear to ear.)
