Over ten years ago, I received an email from Rebecca (right), she had gone to see the movie The Soloist, with a friend. The film is about my brother Nathaniel and his newfound very unlikely friendship with a Los Angeles Times journalist. She was so moved by the simple fact that someone ventured out to do such a film, that depicted a friendship of support for a man who has a mental health condition, one she is familiar with because she shares the same diagnosis, schizophrenia. She was so moved that she went back to see the movie again two more times, by herself. We began to communicate, by phone, email, and social media. Over the years I can easily say that Rebecca, her mother Claire and I, are three people who have also developed an unlikely friendship, which is based on truth, reality, support for each other, love, and oh the appreciation of a good cup of coffee. In this Hear The Music episode you will hear Rebecca’s “music” as it relates to events in her life that were dark moments, but she made it through and is standing TALL, she turned the darkness into a light to help others. She has turned those tough times into a way to shine. She certainly has been an inspiring light for me.
