    You matter to me!

    If you are overwhelmed and feeling lost please just do two things for me. First, take a breath, push the pause button for a quick ten count. Breath in deep. Then call me, text me, phone me, email me, Facebook me, Tweet me and I will be there. If not me then call 1-800-273-8255.

    My door is open for you proverbially and literally. I have coffee (or beer….or bourbon…just sayin’) and insomnia so whatever the time of day, I am here for you. If you just need to take some time to get away from the rest of the world, there will be no judgement just an ear and a shoulder. I have a guest room and if that ever changes, I will have a couch.

    This morning I awoke to discover that I lost a friend suddenly and tragically. I was overcome with such a depth of sadness and I wept. I wept for the lost chances to have a beer with my friend one more time. My thoughts turned even darker when I began to wonder if I should have been more available. We had made strides to start a project together but with both our busy schedules, I let it slip down my priority ladder and I hadn’t thought about reaching out to him in months.

    My mind raced with thoughts like, “Should I have pushed harder to complete this project?” “Should I have reached out more?”

    You see my friend was not very keen on technology. Even email for this man was a bit stressful. I remember him staying with me and getting excited when he figured out how to email from his phone. He emailed me from the guest room.

    I would give anything to have been able to hop on a plane and fly to him in a heartbeat to let him know how much he meant to so many and just listen.

    My heart aches for the world of magic and this great man’s family. We have lost another great man. ?

    So, my friend, I want you to know that if you reach out to me, you have not burdened me, you have honoured me. You are not alone and if I have to stay on the phone for hours with you just to make sure you are going to be alright, I want to do it.

    Today I am so terribly sad. I really do not want to ever feel this way again. So, if you feel like you are getting inundated with emails and phone calls from me it’s because I care so deal with it.

    “Suicide doesn’t end the chances of life getting worse, it eliminates the possibility of it ever getting any better.”

    I am here twenty four seven for anyone who needs to talk. Do not hesitate to reach to me and if not me, then please call 1-800-273-8255.
