Happy new year

I started Rolldance blog in 2007. It evolved from link-laden posts exploring creative arts therapies and mental illness, into endeavoring to build a non-profit supporting people with schizophrenia — a brain disease which my older brother Michael struggled with for 13 years, and died as a result from.

The grief must’ve been too fresh. I couldn’t veer from writing about my heartache and loss.

But I suppose we all need to express that which strains to see the light. We all have stories to share or hide.

Thank you for reading my blog. I don’t know what it’s about. I entertain the idea of continuing an interview series with people around the neighborhood (sort of like these posts featuring Cera Byer and Arturo Duarte).

Perhaps what’s also craved is dialogue spoken in the dark.

Wishing everyone a happy new year. May each day sing with our stories and absurd awesomeness of life!
