%Lying here with Jennie, enjoying the Jodie Foster commentary, I shared with Jennie how much fun it was having “Contact” being filmed at the VLA when I was attending New Mexico Tech. I shared it was early in manifesting bipolar symptoms, where in retrospect I was feeling the true emotion of joy and not hypomanic euphoria. And then ability to discern the two became impossible.

Today and for the many since losing Clare, I feel the true emotion of heartbreak, and it’s great to feel this and know it’s my real emotion I own.

I enjoy conversations with Jennie. She finds this kind of candor with me both fascinating and touching. It’s validating having the external feedback reinforcing my ability to connect with others. It gives me great confidence Stand Up To Stigma is where my life is best lived.

That is all.
