altho its not me in the photo for most of my adult life this was my story ..
i havent been in that dark place for over 10 years but it calls to me sometimes .. i choose not to respond ..

i have a feeling this image will totally bomb out coz its so in your face and confrontational but i'm putting it in anyway coz its real and i dont mind who knows about my past as my present and future are so different .. )

This just works. Personal, gripping and just confrontational enough to speak to us all. Each of us need to break with our destructive side.

Roz, you should never fear losing the gift of words, as your images speak such volumes. An amazing image, worthy of the front page.

Mate...times are tough...drought....loss...hang in there. I lost my son to this. You CAN break it.
Incredible expression. Truly hoping things get better for this fellow. I feel as tough I can't leave this without sending healing love. I'm in tears. I know your pain.

Reach out to people who will help. They are there.
