It's My Birthday! One Dollar, Please!

Dear Friends,
Psst, IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!!! But it'll be our secret.
I'm going to be away and completely detached from reality and the virtual world through July 5th. I'll update ya when I return. For now, for my birthday, will you kindly spare $1? (Donations accepted from anywhere in the world. Donations in excess of $1 will not be rejected.) There's a story behind this seemingly silly request, and it's for a very good cause - suicide prevention...the link is here.
Thank you, wonderful peeps.

I'm Chairwoman of Chico's 5th Annual...

  4. Happy Birthday, Robyn! Good luck with the fundraising and with the Walk!

    Too bad we can't seem to do anything about the online harassment that contributes to the suicides.

  6. Happy Birthday!

    Hey how come sometimes when I come here a full page ad takes over and won't redirect me back to your site for several seconds?

  9. DG, yeah, cyberbullying is monstrously ugly. I think parents and maybe youth are starting to do things about it, though. We need lots more efforts to fight it. You're right. Thanks.

    JoJo, I had no idea that was happening. Dangit. Is it an interesting ad for anything good, at least?

    Thank you, all.
    love ya.

  32. I hope you're enjoying your birthday week, Robyn. You chose a fantastic cause to support.

    On a side note, the song, "I need a dollar" is now stuck in my head. :)

  38. I am nearly speechless. I say nearly because I need to say that I am touched beyond words, and it takes words to say that.

    Love and compassion not only exist in this world, they exist all over the world. Thank you all for having and sharing it.

    It's great to be back, though frustrating to be scrambling to catch up.

    Be well. I'll make the circuit asap.

  39. Robyn was not detached from reality last week. She was on a different planet with 150 other writers that shared words, feelings, and the deep darkness and lightness of our lives. I was caught up in the vortex with her and forever changed by the wind in my hair. Or maybe it was Robyn's red hair streaking upward from an unknown abyss.

  40. Oh John, great to see you here! Thank you. I'm still struggling with how to post/write about the past week. I'm trying to pull up my photos, but the CPU isn't cooperating.

    It was a real dreamy week, wasn't it?
