  1. repeating what i said on facebook is that i love your sense of humor, depth and youness. and i’m grateful you like my squishy hugs which i love to give to those with open and receptive hearts. i also want to let you know that i know about depression. my brother suicided because of it. so did my nephew. and i’ve suffered from it my entire life. in my 20’s and 30’s i was hospitilized a few times, even doing one stint in napa state hospital in california. so count me among your group of understanding supporters, and may we all be freed from suffering, and be given courage in the event we are not granted that freedom.
