SUICIDE: CALM

Suicide: CALM – In memory of MALIK Bendjelloul & MyCool Bovell

The news reported that Director of Searching For Sugar Man, Malik Bendjelloul’s death this week was due to suicide. Earlier this week a young relative of mine was laid to rest –  he too had committed suicide.  I’m drawn again to share the webpage for CALM.

In memory of Michael Bovell, the Mycool Bovell Foundation has been set up to make a difference in the lives of teenagers and young adults in crisis.

I’m on day 1 of the Take10 series

A wonderful introduction to meditation. I was waiting for it to start, and it was already coming to an end. Thinking about: my body, breathing, sound, …and the colour yellow came to mind, a yellow rain mac.

I’m using the Headspace On The Go app.
