Well - it's official now. Some of my poems and one piano piece are part of a Male Survivor's art show this month. Feels kinda good.

Wow, congratulations, be proud, stand tall.

Not sure of the time difference over here in the UK but it seems that the reception is today, so thinking of you.

I feel more like I do now than I did when I got here.

great, congrats!
The first step to living the life you want, is to leave behind what you don't want.

Awsome Mark! I'm especially pleased for you doing this when I considder where you've been in the past. Sharing your story and your creativity like this is amazing.

I hope you have fun, and I particularly myself admire anyone who can play the Piano! laugh.

Mark - CONGRATULATIONS are certainly in order. I can only imagine that it does "feel kinda good" and it should!

Quite an accomplishment, and a big step in recovery. I have to agree with dark empathy about the piano, I've always admired anyone who can play.
Whether you say, "i can't do this," or say, "I CAN DO THIS" You're Right.
