Speaking of Sam's Facebook..

I had an interesting and unexpected call from Elizabeth Davis yesterday. She had been looking at Sam's Facebook and specifically looking at his photo album "My Swan Song". She asked me if it would be possible to use those pictures in some kind of gallery showing that she would do the work of putting together. She has a lot of connections to make it happen (in Deep Ellum most likely), and would be willing to do so - and would like to make the show a benefit for one of the various suicide prevention groups (any specific suggestions there might be helpful). Anyway, she called me because she didn't want to step on any toes - I talked to Rabbit before posting this, and he and I both think this would be a really cool idea.

I gave Rabbit her number, and of course she (or somebody) will need to talk to Mari and Chris about the idea. I just wanted to post so people can be aware of this plan, express support or voice concern about it, or volunteer to help out or involve yourself somehow. If this gets off the ground I'll of course be attending, as I hope most of us that can feasibly do so will. So.. thoughts?

I think it sounds like a great idea, personally. Seems... like a respectful context to place those photos in. I'm curious what the rest of you think.

Sounds awesome. We should probs do research on the foundation though. I had a friend do something like this for autism or something and it was a fake foundation so all that money was stolen.

Not kidding.
