dear all. i'm ill. i've not been responding to or sending out work for quite some time. i never finished archiving that beautiful zalop show that many of you participated in. that was almost a year ago now. 

i've been wanting to hurt myself for a long time now. friday i will start weekly therapy that i have needed for 20+ years. i have to get back on an ssri to stop the madness going on in my head. unfortunately that wont happen for a few more weeks. 

i just wanted to give you all an update and let you know that i will eventually be back. i miss you all. peace and love to you.

Dear all. thanks for the overwhelming support here on my wall and in private msgs. i havent responded to any of you. i've been doing everything i can. docs, meds, meetings, sponser. (i'm a dry drunk, without a meeting in 5 years, a drink in six) but i started self medicating, with other substances, after i quit the program. temp left the house for some internal peace. TMI? IDC. it helps to share. anyway, thanks for the support. see y'all when i see y'all.

Michael, don't worry. You will get better, and you're already working toward that. Thank you for your openness, and I wish you peace and new paths. No worries about mail art events! Just enjoy the mail art that comes your way ...

Get better Michael. As soon as you can.

I was just thinking of you yesterday, when I finally discovered what "corn pone" is: a tasty dish that involves an upper layer of cornbread over a lower stew-type layer. Glad to hear you are paying attention to what's in the stew, and hopefully will come out stronger on the other side of therapy. Take care!

We will all be thinking of you, my friend.  It is good to hear from you. Take your time.

Take care of yourself, Michael. You can always come back any time you're ready and the network is already here and your friends and that's the beauty of it.
