Thank you


The responses to my last post were so honest and searing. I've always been the one in my family who opened her big mouth and said out loud what everyone else was silently thinking. And yet I've never really talked with most of my family about this event that shattered some, and changed everything. Thank you so much for sharing your experiences, your family's experiences, with suicide. It makes me realize that I need to do more talking, to my own family and try to measure how deep and how wide this thing is. And maybe even write a book about it. (Because, really, I need another creative project to add to the crew I'm already juggling.)

And I just want to add how amazing it is to have you all out there, reading the messages I send out in this cyber bottle, sending back yours. On this difficult subject, as with so many others, it makes me feel less alone.

Yes, isn't the blogosphere a remarkable place to make friends, share truths and just be yourself. I'm constantly and pleasantly surprised.

Wow! I haven't been able to get online for the last couple days, so it was amazing to read your post. Good for you for speaking up. And I love your message in a cyber bottle image.
