The Potter's Hand, a blog

Edmonton Senior/Calgary Senior newspapers are featuring my blog, "The Potter's Hand" on their website.

If I get a following and enough comments, it's possible the blog will morph into a paid column in time.

The blog is about mental illness in all its aspects, and its impact on family, friends, the world, and the individual.

John Nash died this week. 

He left a legacy of "A Beautiful Mind" and 86 years of living, for most of his life with the diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. He said that all is not suffering, and that is true. For many, mental illness is both an escape and a refuge. I can attest to that at various times in my life.

I've come out of the shadows.

Please visit "The Potter's Hand" and comment.

Thank you.

Highway to Hawaii

An article was published in the Calgary Senior about our trip to Hawaii in December 2014 for Christmas. As it's May now, the editor asked that I downplay the Christmas part.

Here's the article.

It was truly a Paradise for a prairie girl from Canada in the middle of a cold, dark winter.
