Warning: This is going to be one of those meaningful blog posts designed to change the fabric of Colorado Springs' identity. It's going to make our citizens take a reflexive look at themselves and ask, "Could I be doing anything more productive with my time than reading this?" And it's going to do it by showing the sad, the broken, the lost and the frowny-faced.
There's no good reason for this list, other than that I've been noticing a few more downtrodden messages in my stream than normal. So, here are your peers. Listen to them.

Naked meditation in the sun today! Really enjoying all this outdoor nudity. Taking advantage of being neighborless; no nakie in Boston :(

1. Lastly, this one, as is usually the case, proves that brevity is the soul of hope-crushing despair.
