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.

Song Lyrics: "Two Steps"

Two Steps

Two steps out the door
You know you’ve been here before
In another lifetime
With a different kind of rhyme,
A different kind of face,
But in a way it’s all the same place.

It’s already been seen,
But it still feels so new to me.
It’s already been done,
But it keeps coming back
Like the rising sun.

Two steps out the door,
This is a place of peace and not war.
The valley waits for my footsteps
Forgiving all my past debts.
I’m free at last to run,
To follow the moon and the sun.

It’s already been seen,
But it still feels so new to me.
It’s already been done,
But it keeps coming back
Like the rising sun.
