Today is June 8th. I am alive and well.

I’m entering a couple of excerpts from my book. If you want more excerpts please let me know, or less, let me know that too. Yes or no, it’s all good.

Excerpt–
It’s the nature of night to be dark, but then the moon gets thrown in to pull at our bellies, to pull us right out of our pants before we become lost like a black ant in the bottom of a black bowl.

As for mental illness, I struggled. The plague had yet to catch me completely. I thought of it as a Stephen King novel. I knew it was there, I knew something was happening, but in the first 150 pages of a 500 page book, it had yet to reveal itself. I still had time before my heart was cut out and my mind completely poisoned.

End Excerpt.

Today, I will go to the movies; something I couldn’t do when my mind was wrapped in sickness. It feels lovely. And I will of course be accompanied by the love of my life, Guy. We have been together for eleven years. Amazing. Thank all of you for being out there.

Today is June 8th. I am alive and well.

    I loved your excerpt. It is really prose poetry and takes me to a powerful place upon reading it. I loved your metaphors, such as the Stephen King novel. That’s funny about the movie today: I had a picture in my mind (while washing dishes at the kitchen sink!) that you and Guy would go to a movie. I hope you enjoy it! Love and Blessings!
