Giving thanks

This Monday is Canadian Thanksgiving. I read a few internet articles talking about the differences between Canadian and American Thanksgiving, besides the obvious difference in dates, of course. There are more similarities than differences between our observances. According to the Wikipedia article, "The theme of the Thanksgiving holiday also changed each year to reflect an important event to be thankful for," but that has not been the case for almost one hundred years ...

Observing World Schizophrenia Day

Observing World Schizophrenia Day

What exactly is schizophrenia and why a special day of observance? Here is an excerpt from NDTV:

"World Schizophrenia Day 2018 is observed on May 24. Schizophrenia is a mental condition which affects normal functioning of the brain. The condition interferes with a person's ability to feel, act and think. Some schizophrenic patients recover completely and find an improvement in their symptoms. But others continue to suffer from schizophrenia for a prolonged period of time, wherein the distressing symptoms can last for years.

Fiction about Sexual Abuse of Boys/Men

I have had discussions in a couple of writers' communities lately about the topic of the sexual abuse of men and boys, some of the myths that surround it, and giving men/boys "permission" to speak about sexual abuse on an equal footing with women/girls.
