Crested Butte Mountains in all their autumn glory

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.

Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.

The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

Maternal Depression-It’s not so black and white

Did you suffer from Postpartum Depression? Tell your story and help others. Join survivor of Postpartum Depression, Cynthia N Olkie, in sharing your story of PPD.

Cynthia is putting together a book that will feature the stories and photos of other PPD survivors in an effort to increase PPD awareness and services. A portion of the proceeds will go directly to Postpartum Support International (www.postpartum.net).

Cynthia is looking for stories, maximum 650 words in length and written in the first person. It can be a narrative story or a poem. If selected and live within the Los Angeles area, Cynthia will do a complimentary photo session. Your story along with an artful image(s) from your photo session will be featured. In exchange for your submission, you will be given an 8×10 image of your choice and a copy of the image that is featured in the book. Not to mention, the satisfaction that you are helping other mothers and families that are struggling with postpartum depression.

Please submit your story and questions to: fleurphoto@aol.com. Cynthia has created a blog to chronicle her experience with getting this book off the ground and is open to all feedback.
