Humming. Now he’s singing. She’s light years away, but she can hear him – the little one, singing his favorite song, “Twinkle twinkle little star … how I wonder where you are …”

In the upcoming weeks, we will be revisiting depression, which I refer to as ‘darkness’. Authors Ey Wade and Andrea R Cunningham will share poignant quotes. Poet Donesha Thompson will share poetry, and there will be an incredible two part guest post from Emiliana Martín .
If you or your loved ones suffer from ‘darkness,’ please come back and join us – please know that you are not alone.
