Not In The Mood

I was going to write about getting acupuncture for the first time and looking like Pinhead from the movie Hellreaiser – and for those of you scoring at home that is probably the first and the only reference I ever make to that movie.
I was going to write about my book and give you an update on my progress.
I was going to write about my weekend plans which includes a road trip with two of my buddies from high school.
I was going to write about some other stuff too but instead I don't feel like writing about much of anything because I got some bad news yesterday as I found out that a friend of mine killed himself.
I am mad and sad.
I am angry and upset.
I am confused.
I just hope that tomorrow will be a more gentle place to land than today.
Take care.





I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

So sorry to hear about your friend, Matt. We will never understand why these things happen to those we love. All we can do is pray that they are now at peace. Sending a supportive hug ((Matt))

My brother in law hung himself some years back so I know how you feel.

I'm so sorry to hear that; so many feeling accompany news like that. All that other stuff can wait until you're ready.

So sorry about your friend. Hang in there, buddy. Seems like at times like this a road trip with your old friends will be just what the doctor ordered. That and Hellraiser on Blue Ray.
