This was a good piece to read Adam.

An art teacher at college said

“give your self-doubt a name and give it a chair in your studio - you may as well, it will always be with you”

After losing my father, mother and a sister in quick succession I have tried to do the same with grief.

I comfort myself with the thought grief is the wage of deep love.

Amen, Adam - well said. (By which I actually mean 'well written'). Grief is something that almost everyone carries, in one way or another. This was struck home to me recently, when I worked with a recently widowed woman who was the same age as my (late) mother. She was missing her husband, I was missing my mother... EVERYONE is missing someone.

Purely on that basis - if on no other - all of us should just default to being kind to each other, shouldn't we?

Hope you are feeling better Adam. The grief will pass over time.

I remember you from Smithfield High School. Was pleasantly surprised to see someone from my grade make it in show biz.
