An hour later I walked in and found my Dad sitting at his table furiously writing.
"Hi," I said.
"I've had an epiphany!" he replied.
My heart sank - he was textbook #manic. His hands and voice were shaking and he was overjoyed to tell me about the religious awakening he had had overnight.
The saddest thing about a #manicepisode is that the person having it feels fantastic. With a spark in his eyes, my dad told me how he felt the best that he had felt in five years.
"Take my picture," he said. "I want to remember today."
