Mental Health: The Universe Knows You and Loves You

A couple of years ago, Archer and I visited friends in New Mexico. On a quick trip from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, we stopped to walk across this bridge that had such an incredible view. However, there were reminders everywhere that tragedy befalls this landmark often. Since May is Mental Health Awareness Month, I thought talking about this picture was important.

There are 121 suicides in America per day. It was hard to think that in this beautiful place, people would choose to end their lives.

I was amazed to see that there were several call boxes for those considering their end to talk to someone immediately.

The main purpose is to make the invisible more visible. The…

I found this is a cute little store in Philly. Truer words never spoken. When I was still working in an office, they had to disable the automatic lighting and I brought in lamps. Although everyone with migraine disease has the legal right to ask for workplace accommodations for their condition, not every company is…
