Day 1,521

Do you ever wake up to the sense that you were waited on? Whether it is self or another, your eyes flutter open and for a second you feel completely present mixed with arriving for a holiday embraced in joy.One of my favorite artists is Taylor Swift.I relate to her self reflection and desire to … Continue reading Day 1,521

Day 1,461

Dave’s death day has been stalking me.Like a song stuck on repeat.Or chosen repetition.I’m never sure if I create my own black holes or if I do truly just stumble and fall within.I laid my hand on the tile again.It’s cold with droplets of warmth from the running shower.This feels so much like my grief.... … Continue reading Day 1,461

One of my cherished nosies in the world!In the room at my … Continue reading Day 1,426

Day 1,414

To say I have been silent is incorrect.I speak.Often.Loudly.Just not about me anymore.Not about the real me at least.I once had words for everything.As all else seemed to trickle through my fingers on this river of life I still had words.My sole companion.The truest version of me I could find.I dug deep into the darkness … Continue reading Day 1,414
