Out of the Walls

In February 2008, my brother died of ALS. During his four-year-long struggle with the disease, he anonymously published a no-holds-barred blog on Blogger, to which I contributed as “Ratty”. Under that protective pseudonym, I published a much smaller companion blog called Rat in the Walls, which allowed me to voice things about his illness that I couldn’t voice otherwise.  Today, I pulled down the wall and changed my Blogger profile to use my real name instead of the pseudonym.

I’m owning the ugly as well as the love.

What do you think?
