Time passes, memories fade.

My brother,     I never imagined more than a decade going by before sharing more with you here about my life since you went away. The thing that has affected me the most are my thoughts about your 20 years not only being all the time you had on earth, but also the entirety of your whole existence.     There is a comfort and peace provided like nothing else with notions that our beings continue on in unseen realms. The thing that speaks to me the loudest about that is my belief that no one…See More

One thing I've learned...

(This is a snapshot at alt on a flt 1 year ago. It was like I caught a glimpse of heaven, because out of all the shots I took that afternoon, none other turned out like this)time is a paradox.     A couple other things I've learned, Robert Frost lived in obscurity until his 40s, and Emily Dickinson lived an entire lifetime in obscurity--she didn't make it to 60.       Oh…See More

(I was a brother) Solitarily Confined

Posted on July 29, 2010 at 6:00am 0 Comments

I am resigned to the fact that there won't be many new developments about the point at which I'm living life now. Learning the new way to live is where I make my biggest strides. It's a dreadful thought that right as I am beginning my life journey and trying to make it in the world, and discovering what there is to live for along the way, one of the biggest reasons for all of that is lost. When I am suppose to have 'everything to live for', 'your whole life ahead of you', the person who was…

(I was a brother) Emptiness fills

Marcus, the youngest sibling of three decided to take his life in the early morning hours, 9 months and 1 day ago. Being apart from him he did it in my old room, the only one in the house. Memories within those walls are both haunting and comforting since that's the only place we've ever lived. One memory is of us sitting on my computer, and being artists I would show him techniques I learned using the basic paint program to create graphic visuals. I once showed him a finished portrait of…

Thank you for sharing your memories.
My mother took her own life when I was 10 yrs old. And now I have lost a son. So yes I agree that if we all were shown the future it would be difficult to choose life.
The fact that Marcus was an artist does not surprise me..the sensitive often find life too difficult to bear. Often we do not realize how much our loved ones are hurting and they also hide the truth from us. I know you will honor Marcus' memory beautifully with your art work, and I am sure his inspiration will make you a better person too. That is my only solace, that the experience of the tragedy has helped me become kinder.
