    It was a beautiful film. I love Michael’s honesty, energy, creativity, and resilience. I often suffer from feelings of deep loneliness. This project hits the core of it. I wish often people would teach out, because it’s so hard to reach out when your depressed. I’m glad Michael can use that to bring creativity and life into his life. Importent lesson. I thank you and Michael.
