An Invitation

A few people have mentioned to me that they would like to hear more of the story surrounding my father’s suicide. I’m not sure which direction to head; in fact, the last time I wrote about it, I ended rather abruptly.

While I spend a bit more time formulating my thoughts and developing a trajectory, I wanted to begin creation of a page where I invite anyone to ask a question, make a request or offer a suggestion. In time, perhaps a FAQ will organically develop. I realize there aren’t many comments currently posted to this blog, but I have received a fair amount of encouraging and heartwarming feedback privately, and I am thankful for the stories that have been shared with me as a result.

I wish to always be able to put myself out there, to be able to perhaps provide some level of connection for even just one person out there — and the thought of this alone is enough to keep me motivated.

So, dear readers, please feel free to comment below, or if you wish, email me at twentymilehike@gmail.com and will be more than happy to respond. I am happy to keep names and contact information confidential in future writings.

I will end today’s short post with this quote that I adore:

Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle

– Paulo Coelho, Brida
