Patty Duke, Oscar-winning American actress, dies at 69

Patty Duke   Wikipedia

I remember Patty Duke's performance as Helen Keller - imagining what it would be like to be trapped in a body without the primary senses that help shape our lives. Brilliant performance from a remarkable actress. She was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 1982, after which she devoted much of her time to advocating for and educating the public on mental health issues. She died on March 29, 2016 of sepsis from a ruptured intestine.

Reality is hard. It's no walk in the park, this thing called Life.

Wives Matter

Art by Vincent van Gogh

Last week we experienced the inappropriate "Trump-Cruz Wives" Twitter Wars. Tuesday featured another story involving wives - EgyptAir hijacker suspect allegedly hijacked plane over ex-wife. The way one treats their wife and relationships goes to the mental health of those involved. The Real Housewives reality series pits vicious vindictive women against each other in staged venues. It's all about the craziness that permeates the hologram and the lack of respect people have for one another. Many men I read refer to their ex-wives as bipolar bitches. Did they ever think that the dynamic between them catalyzed their behavior? As for marriage and relationships - they work for some not others for any number of reasons at different points in a person's life. Don't try to make sense of it. Many have tried, few have succeeded.
