I've gotten hooked on inspiration deck cards, thanks to my friend, Jessica Brogan of Austin Texas. I just sent off a new set last week. This time, like the last, there are participants from all over the world. Can't wait to see what my new deck looks like.
Now I am working on a new set with more of a personal connection. This new set will be a donation for a silent auction. My friend's son committed suicide last year. I can't imagine. Ty and his family struggled for years with his mental illness. This experience has given me new insight and a sense of urgency to help bring mental illness and the call for help for people who struggle everyday. Last year Ty's parents organized a memorial gathering. This year an event is being organized to honor Ty's memory and to help NAMI make a difference in peoples lives. Peace in the Park will be a gathering of friends with food, fellowship and a silent auction. Many of our artist friends have donated work. Proceeds will benefit NAMI Minnesota in memory of Tyler Thoresen. If you'd like to join us...please email me for details.
