Candle in the Wind

Photo taken by contributor Jim, a man from the SouthWest of Texas who has struggled with depression for much of his life.

About this photo: I know that these words were written for someone much more well known than me. But I feel that Norma Jean and me shared some of the same demons.

There are days that I feel my flame burning kind of sideways, but it does keep on a burning.

‘And it seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind. Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in. And I would have liked to have known you but I was just a kid. Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did.’ ~Elton John & Berie Taupin”
