Coming Home to Joy

Coming Home to Joy

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…

Airport at Night

The traveling souls around me act in unusual normality. It’s three in the morning in this quiet airport bar. Outside, the cold wind of London, makes shiver bodies, and let’s sweet hopes disappear. It makes them simply fly away. And in…

Rachel Hamm Gertz

Rachel Hamm Gertz is a self-taught writer working on her first novel. She has written semi-professionally for multiple venues and started the process of writing a "fictional biography" (which turned into the beforementioned novel) when the suggestion that she keep a diary was made by her therapist. She writes from an unfiltered voice, often filled with chaos, always from the heart. It is not always pretty, but it will be said. Unapologetically. In great detail. Maybe not like every woman, but their darkest sides. Nothing is off limits. Sometimes the truth hurts. Embrace it and the strength you gain is immeasurable.
