SHANNON's blog Everyday Stranger, is a new find for me. It's filled with beautiful writing and photos and captivating thoughts.
She's also shortlisted for a Best Writer award in The MADs, where her blog is described as a "glorious patchwork of stories."
Here, she shares with us her experience of depression and what I'd call a cautious optimism about life on the other side.
Thank you Shannon for sharing your story, which I'm also including at Breaking the Silence.
MY twins are two years old now, hurtling towards three.
This morning our son decided to "caterpillar" across the floor with his Thomas the Tank Engine trains, and our daughter politely asked “Can I have a turn too please?” after her brother had a spin from his half-sister.
They sing, they hold my hands, the kiss me, they fill my days with light.
It hasn’t always been this way.
