Words on Paper: A Visceral Love Story

Loneliness. Sadness. A whisper of impending defeat. “Less than” disable emotions creep in as my mind slows with a need to unclench. Weakened barriers. Weary soldiers. Relentless dreams. A hunger so furious it feels all consuming. What do I do between the moments of mass creation? How do I quiet the thoughts? Trees that go […]

Pebbles in Water: Self-Awareness and You

Spoiler Alert, I people watch. Partly because I don’t like to engage in idle chatter with near strangers to pass the time and partly because I’m an over serious fiction writer determined to make the most complex characters I can muster. Self-awareness has been a trait I’ve been paying attention to quite a bit lately. […]

I Gave Her the Fall

I think we all are aware that experiencing something, whatever it is, alters us. Time traveling is interpreted many different ways. Certain times of the […]

Obsessed

I’m obsessed. My mind won’t quiet. Thoughts of more pull me out of the present. Dreams that reach magnitude distract me. Questions circle non-stop. How can I make it better? What does this need? Am I really making the best use of my time? Doubt is never far. Anxiety is a circle that feeds itself. […]

The Last Time I Saw Them

My husband and I sat at our undersized dining room table across from an escrow agent in a mismatched room ragged at the corners from being both over a hundred years old and a rental home for thirty. The woman’s low voice skimmed over the stack of contracts one by one though none of her […]

Not Enough

Be beautiful. Be Fit. Be a compassionate mother who feeds her family well. Be smart. Be independent. The list of societal pressures on women seems endless.

I’m Not My Mother

I started writing an article about being too quick to medicate children. I often wonder about the damage done to my developing mind from all the medications given to me as a child (some prescribed for me some for my mother).

A Part in the Clouds

Recently I stepped out of a darkness I didn’t realize I was in, and leaving it behind is a process. I believe I would be selling myself short if I said I was fragile because I’m actually quite strong. But, emotionally I feel so much at once sometimes, it causes me to have the illusion […]
