“At 11 I became ill.  I fell into depression.  I stopped talking.  And I stopped eating.  Later I was diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome, OCD and selective mutism.  Which basically means I only speak when I think its necessary.  Now is one of those moments.”  ( Instagram @gretathunberg Source:  Ted Talks)

The Black Dog Blog (now 12 years on) contains some 500 posts, so thought I’d do some rewinding on particular topics.  Here’s to …. Being enough and the rejection of all things ‘superfied’  …

Army of Ink  – Enough.   If I was Made of Chocolate.  Think You Want.  Wisdoms of Rose – Wish Upon Yourself.   Drawing A Line.  Army of Ink – Blow The Man Down.  With Integrity. Robin Small.  For Rubbish Self Esteem.  Free Yourself/Birdman Movie.  Bob Dylan on Destiny.

Although it feels like a dig at young people, it’s an important conversation worth hearing – and sharing.  Please pass it on….
