Remembering Dennis Ferdon

Today is the 13th anniversary of my brother's death. 

Dennis A. Ferdon Obituary

I resorted to Google this year for ideas on how to honor him. The Suicide Prevention Hotline website offered the best counsel:

"The best way to honor our fallen loved ones is simply by living. Live life joyfully and abundantly, the way that they would have wished. Spread love and hope and encouragement, and the message that no person is alone. Thousands of voices are silenced to suicide each year.. but not forever. We can be the voices of those lost."

We miss you brother!!!!

Robert Bly Dead at Age 94

I woke to news yesterday that Robert Bly had passed away at age 94 on Sunday, November 21. It brought back memories of my best friend, an English major and fellow warrior, turning me on to Bly 45+ years ago. As usual, he responded perfectly by sending me this.
