Love of Composition – #griefheart number 107

Love of composition
Love of composition

Charles wrote his raps in a composition book, the kind he used to use since kindergarten. This heart is made out of the cover. He used some spiral notebooks, too. About 15+ are missing. Could be as many as 25 or 30. He was a prolific writer.

My heart is with them and I wish I could get them back, especially the one he loaned out in rehab and never got back. He had had that one with him since the Family School days in Hancock NY. I have to hope his words are out there helping someone else now. I don’t have much hope they’ll ever find me again.

My motivational mental health keynotes, training and workshop topics include suicide prevention, addiction, mental illness, anxiety, coping strategies/resilience, and grief.
