Don't take that to mean I don't trust you or anything like that. People just don't want to hear my nonsense and it's not nearly as horrible as a lot of other people's trauma that deserves way more care and attention.



I can't stand this.
I can't.
Why are good people hurt.
Why do people do bad things.
Why are so many of the people I love most victims of pain.

Just.
No.

My grandmother was abused regularly by her husband, and my mother was often thrown against the wall by him in her childhood though she hasn't ever spoken of sexual abuse. My favorite teacher in high school, who married her girlfriend in Europe over one summer, was raped in her teens.


One of Brando's old 'friends' from high school went to the older sister of our buddy Sean and told her he was involved in a gang bang. He wasn't ever found guilty of anything as there was no evidence and he claimed he was just the 'look out'.



There are a great many awful people in the world who do awful things to other people. For what reason? I don't know, and I don't think I'll ever know. But you want to know why I'm in Vermont learning to write children's books, of all things?

Because they helped me get over that shit. And they reminded me that even when the world seems bleak and full of hurt, there is hope and there is love and there is kindness to be found as well.

I may have had a shitty thing happen to me, but because of that, I have been able to be a crisis counselor for RAINN and a speaker for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, and I'm writing a book right now that deals with finding yourself again after having something awful happen to you.
My friend may have a pretty shitty time right now, but she's strong beneath all this bullshit. She can and will get past this, and she'll find someone who is good and kind.
It may seem silly to believe that good eventually wins in the end, but I think believing might help you at least get half the way there.




(Sorry I depressed everybody with that bullshit, guys.)

Cancer took away, in no particular order, my strength, my dignity, my sex drive, and my patience. I never really talked about it in depth, and I may never do so. Mostly I just want to put it behind me and forget it.

I want baby Sam to grow up healthy and confident and know how much his parents love him.
I want you to be confident in all that you do and never have a single ounce of pain ever again.
I want Kildread to be happy and never be hurt and have wonderful loving partners, I want Shelbs to have the loving and kind relationship she deserves, I want Loli to know what a mature and wonderful young lady she is and know we all care about her, I want Sakura to dance and never be afraid again, I want everyone to be everything they've always wanted to be and make sure that the bad people who would prevent this never get in your way.

Just can't everyone be happy? Can't everyone be everything you want to be? What can I do to make things okay for everyone.

Can I just say...you guys are probably some of the few people I feel completely comfortable with?


Emmers, I am crying so hard...

Guys, I consider us a family. It can be a weird, angry, disfunctional family, but still a family. Ohana.

We'll all be just fine, Emmers.
Don't worry about us.
Setbacks suck, but we're all positive, determined, strong people, and we'll make it through.


And we really all must get together one day. Little Dude too.

Well, Little Dude's not at risk of getting the cancer I had, so there's that to be happy about.

And it's the cancer you had.
I know it's been way hard on you and PD and LD, but you're through the thick of it. And now you can put it behind you and move on to good, worthwhile stuff.

Post a dress.
Somebody makes an offer.
You ask to go a little higher.
They go a little lower.
You accept
THEY NEVER RESPOND
