Anthony Bourdain was not just a chef, he was an influencer – of food, and of thought. Bourdain took his own life earlier today, Friday June 8th. According to CNN, Bourdain's friend and fellow chef Eric Ripert found Bourdain unresponsive in his hotel room.

Bourdain was in France taping another episode of his CNN show, Parts Unknown. Bourdain had a huge affect not only on lovers of food, but everybody, with his quick wit, his penchant for speaking up on social justice and his constant defense of the restaurant workers in the back. Metalheads and rock musicians were very much touched by his work, and the tributes have been pouring in.

I can’t speak to anyone else’s thoughts or actions but I can speak from my own experience. I have been there, written “the note”, had the plan, the stockpile of meds, how to disperse my property among my family. I was ready to go. Luckily, as a last ditched effort, I reached out. I spoke to my closest friends and loved ones. I sought therapy and at times, psychiatry, alternative medicines, even hospitalization. Whatever it took. What I learned is that through the process, circumstances and feelings shift. As the tide comes in and rolls out, the universe takes many shapes and constantly evolves. We are made of the same stuff. We are constantly changing and evolving and flowing… sometimes scary, sometimes beautiful, sometimes lonely, sometimes supported. Hang in there to allow the process and the shapes to change. I can tell you 100% that they do. Please reach out if you find yourself in the darkness. There is no darkness without light. Try to be willing to let it find you. #mentalhealthawareness @musicares #musicares @abovegroundorg
