News from John Hector (BK)
September 5, 2013 in Notes
As John Hector (BK) reports, he continues, as ever, to recover from his chronic mental illness, and he’s committed to erasing the stigma of mental illness by sharing openly about his experience of its devastating effects. He has lately discovered low-dose naltrexone as an effective medication for fibromyalgia and depression. He has recently been doing volunteer work with Huffman House, a local food bank near Atlanta that serves the seriously needy. He’s also had several of his poems published in small poetry journals. After many years of agnosticism, he has come to describe himself as a “free-lance Christian”, which gives him lots of room on his faith journey. He recently joined the Unity Church, where he enthusiastically studies New Thought writings, particularly the works of H. Emilie Cady. He communicates regularly with Carl Backman (BK), a professor of sociology at Auburn, who lives with his lovely wife Ann, a veterinarian, and his two very talented children, Chipper and Liza. Carl also spends part of his time as a musician and performer, and many productive hours with Ann in his garden. John looks forward to the Dramat’s new season, and especially the play Generations, which presents a family that “always exists in all moments at once.” And he’ll finish with a “cheers” to his classmates, and his best thoughts and blessings.
