A Recovery Blog
This blog is about my continuing recovery from severe mental illness. I celebrate this recovery by continuing to write, by sharing my music and artwork and by exploring Buddhist ideas and concepts. I claim that the yin/yang symbol is representative of all of us because I have found that even in the midst of acute psychosis there is still sense, method and even a kind of balance. We are more resilient than we think. We can cross beyond the edge of the sane world and return to tell the tale. A deeper kind of balance takes hold when we get honest, when we reach out for help, when we tell our stories.

Nancy called me tonight and I actually picked up the phone. These photographs are for her because she likes industrial sites. I shot them with my digital camera (that is now defunct) in Galway, Ireland in the spring of 2004. They're not the normal pictures of Ireland, but I still like them.
