Avoiding & Deflecting is a national epidemic. It’s important to stop & consider how much that applies to you. Finding more courage to risk more truth telling with those that matter the most is crucial.
This is a picture of Patrick, my best friend who died at 40. He faced death head on and lived life to the fullest. I’m delighted to have found a way to include my favorite picture of him on the website and blog. He was an expert at cultivating enthusiasms and having fun. The story about him is really about his sister and how she missed out on knowing him more deeply because she avoided knowing more about his AIDS.
