A gorgeous essay is up on the New York Times website, written by Betsy MacWhinney who writes one of my most favorite blogs ever here.

The essay, entitled "Bringing A Daughter Back From The Brink With Poems," can (and should be) read here. 

Thank you, Betsy.

Once again I am reminded how much richer my own life is through the community I have found in this ethereal and so very real world of ours.


  1. I have a niece who is like Betsy's daughter. My brother has been so troubled as to how to bring her out of it. I will share this article with him in hopes it will help somehow. Being a teenager is hard. Growing one is even harder. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Breathtakingly beautiful, indeed... thanks so much for sharing. And now I have a new blog to read!

  3. Dear Ms. Moon,

    I hope you have a wonderful time watching Owen today!


  4. It's a helpful and hopeful article that could help so many, if it could only reach them. I don't have a blog to spread the word, but I'm so happy to see you doing that, Ms Moon.

  5. I am sending the link to everyone I know now that I have dried my eyes. When I am up in the wee hours having that debate with myself I know I will turn to this article, these poems.

    Thank you Betsy, so much, and thank you Mary for telling us about it.


  6. Such a beautiful, deeply touching piece. Thank you for sharing.

  7. Thanks for sharing this. I too have a lot of questions for the abyss.

  8. That was beautiful. Thank you for sharing.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
