May is mental health month. Most of my life has been negatively impacted by my mental health issues. So, what posts I do write this month (off deadline as stress is too fine a trigger) focus on mental health. I’m in a crisis stage, so whimsy, hope, or dreams won’t appear often right now.
Reaching across the table to take my hands in his, Michael said, “It’s all dark with her now; shadows; tears; staring into nothingness.” I looked into his pleading eyes, “No Michael, you choose what you thought would always be light.” True friendship exists on the shaded and the brightened sides of a dune; neither one blinds or binds.

I’m always in awe those poets/writers who finish the various month-long daily challenges. They emerge with a sense of pride and accomplishment. They have projects to fine tune. Met new friends and colleagues. Become part of and involved in new communities. And a talent strengthened by daily creativity and the encouragement of other participants. So, congratulations to the A to Z, the PAD, and to those involved in the on-going May daily challenges, all the best. You are all so inspiring.
