It is human to look in the closet of broken dreams and wonder if you've done enough or been enough to sustain the hope. But the closet holds so much hope! Never underestimate who you were and who you are now! There's no magic formula that makes us great. It's in the showing up. Am … Continue reading Today…tomorrow
I have all these heroes in the faith..people who shine bright amidst the noise and impact the world with light. Tonight I wonder if I'm a "hero". Can I be one who shows a glimmer of light in darkness? Am I beacon to someone holding on, trying to breathe when the air seems thin? Is … Continue reading Hero
When one and one don't equal two anymore and the equation lays heavy because you know the truth... That is me and you.
You are me when the light dims. You are me when the light shines bright We are one. We are whole! Who knew?!? If tomorrow were another moment in the realm of eternity, would we notice the light? How bright can we shine NOW?!? If we aren't light, who are we? Reach for light!
I was a human once. I lived, I breathed, I knew who I was. It was somewhere between where husband number one left me a puddle on the floor and husband number two decided I wasn't enough.

I'm sure it's primarily caused by the fact that I tested positive for Covid yesterday. I'm fine. It's … Continue reading Feminism, Covid, and Reality
When did the world stop making noise? It screams from the rooftops but I don't think I can hear it anymore The sound of my head has blocked the overwhelming. Survival I am me. I am struggling. I am alive. I will live another day. There is life when the grass dies. There is truth, … Continue reading Noise
The 40's have been good to me...overall. Despite, the crazy weight gain and hormones going crazy and the stress of my personal life (a story for another day). I've gained weight, lost weight. Adjusted to the new "normal" and feel, overall, comfortable, in my new skin. For the most part... Then today, I wore a … Continue reading Thighs, noise, and neurosis
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?
