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 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
