For me, the intention of doing a blog was more of a therapeutic tool in many ways. Life is what we make of it, and sometimes life just has a way of happening to you. Things out of your control either lift you up, or beat you up.
Since I was a teenager I've always sort of felt like I was in some dark place. Depression really. The "abyss" speaks of that place. A part of me will always reside in it.
The "echoes" are the feelings, events, and ideas that emanate from that "abyss" out onto the blog.
Not all of the echoes are depressing, there is plenty of light coming out of that abyss from time to time. Right now, today, the light is winning. Tomorrow, next week, could be a different result. It is a constant battle.
