When I close my eyes there is a brief second that I can almost feel you.  So I close my eyes often, hoping that if I do it enough there will be a whole minute in the day when I don’t feel this thing that I do now. People walking by might thing I am sleepy and need a moment…


Thoughts About The Afterlife

    I’m not sure if it is because I am a creative person or perhaps growing up religious opens my mind up to the possibilities, but I believe in the Afterlife. I am a spiritual person.  I always have been.  I believe in spirits, Angels, lives before this one, and Karma.  I have a fondness for the teachings of …

5 Annoying Things on Facebook

  I love Facebook. I spend a great amount of my time scrolling down through the lives of my friends, family, classmates from 25 years ago that I have not had a real life conversation with in just as long, random celebrities, unusual people who like to post pictures of cats, and many many more.

Truthfully, I really don’t like poetry.

I know.. I know.. I am a girl, I am supposed to like butterflies, rainbows, and poems.  I am supposed to have looked for a guy who likes long walks on the beach, making me dinner, and whispering sweet quotes into my ear as I drift off to sleep.  And I might get kicked out of the girl club for saying this,…


The Arrival of the Red Cardinal

We have lived in our house for 9 years. Those years we have seen the growth and transition of our house as it has evolved into our home. Trees have grown tall while other have been removed.

16… I believed him when he said he loved me. Believed that word meant something powerful and important. The way he cupped my face, held me there so I wouldn’t back away, kissed me as if he needed that kiss to save him. My heart beat so hard in my chest, made my blood rush with pulses of electricity in…

No matter who we are, our life choices, or the number of people we are surrounded by, all of us want to know that we are not alone. We want people in our lives that know us for who we really are and love us in spite of knowing. We call those people family. It used to be that you…

What! You too? -C.S. Lewis

  “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought that no one but myself . . .”” —                   C.S. Lewis                  (The Four Loves)

Is there any coming back from this?

You try to walk away, and yet the screams and mocking follow you up the stairs. You find yourself so alone when you sit there on your bed. This isn’t what you wanted.. not for him, and not for you. Now, everyone can see it. They hear it when you talk, hear it pouring down the stairs when you two fight. But it’s all there is. Fighting is the only passion you two have anymore for each other.
