Body in ocean thought to be Jeremy Blakes

This is a sad story I've been following.

Police in New Jersey are enlisting the publics help in identifying a body presumed to be that of Jeremy Blake, a rising art star who was seen wandering into the ocean off New York's Rockaway Beach on July 17, after leaving behind his clothing, wallet and a suicide note. His girlfriend of 12 years, blogger-filmmaker-writer Theresa Duncan, took her own life in the couple's East Village apartment earlier this month.

I didn't know them but I enjoyed reading Theresa's blog and always admired her inyourface fire and sass. The back story is that she was in the film business and her boyfriend of 12 years, Jeremy Blake, was affiliated with the Art world in New York. She committed suicide a few weeks ago and days later he was seen walking into the ocean.

Now it looks like the search for him may be over.

Yes, very sad. I wonder why she did it, though, I do not wonder why he did.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
