My brother made contact on Wednesday. He has since made his way down to an alternative healing centre on the coast. The police and a social worker have gone down to see him and each seem to be happy enough with his situation there to not want to interfere.
I have a love/hate thing with putting personal thoughts/information like this on the internet and I think I need to stop broadcasting about this situation here for the moment.
I’ve no doubt the situation is going to continue in some new shape, as these kinds of situations tend to do, but I am hoping we are through the worst of it.
Thank you once again for all your support, messages, and kind thoughts. There were more than a few times when I felt burnt out and thought I’d run out of emotion entirely, when a message of support or gesture by someone I regarded as simply another person on the internet brought me to tears. You people and our strange little community of connections never cease to amaze me.
