Some of you may not really know me. I’ve been through a lot. I’ve grown a lot. I’m still growing. I’ve fought unseen battles in the dark through tear-soaked eyes and whispered (or screamed) prayers, and I’ve fought battles in the light through public ridicule and commentary. But I’m still swinging. Today is the day … Continue reading Bruises
Call me into the deep where you are waiting I've missed the feel of you My head can hear you and my sensibilities know you but my emotions have fallen out the window. Who have I become that my emotion is absent? I was passion now I'm passive and that isn't enough. I don't want … Continue reading Sing for the Light
Today was a blip in eternity A small stardust glimpse of reality lived Or maybe not lived to the fullest Or enough of a moment to leave a mark Who knows Today is a moment coming What will it bring? Who will I be in the midst of the noise? Who am I in the … Continue reading When tomorrow comes
I consider myself a strong woman. I do what needs to be done. If I don't know how, I figure it out. If I can't figure it out, I figure that out. I'm in a mood tonight.

I love a good challenge. I love to learn and absorb new things around me. I started using a new computer program today that I've never used and had to force myself to stop messing with it, because I have other things to do and I can learn more later. I often think I can … Continue reading A Note from Bionic Me
There are many inconceivable stories around us every day that we haven't heard. We have no idea what the person next to us has lived. We can't conceive the stories that aren't ours...that aren't open to the vast space of the known. We hold glimpses not substance. We hold illusions and self-constructed paradigms, based on … Continue reading What now?
