Self-love is beautiful to find. I discovered it only after heartbreak on heartbreak, but that’s okay. Eventually, I recognized the need for it, and I dedicated time to growing love within and for myself.  I learned that I am the whole. I am not the half. I am not made...

For the past two years plus I’ve been a single mommy (again).  It’s a long and complicated story, but in short I’ve had two unsuccessful relationships since the birth of my daughter.  They were actually marriages, which definitely added weight to the already heavy burd...

I didn’t know my heart had grown cold.   I was so indifferent about using it over the past couple of years that I just kind of didn’t even think about whether it still worked or not.  I didn’t realize its winter had carried on beyond that of the one in my head, because...

I’ve never gone slowly before.  I’m the type of woman who goes with what I’m feeling about ninety-five percent of the time.  I don’t always think things through, as I probably should.  Honestly, I don’t really love to think about things too much.  It’s hard to figure t...

Disregard the title of this post.  It’s an inside thing.  This will be about a river, though.  I was finally moved enough to write over this past weekend when I floated one for two and a half hours.  It’s the first time I’ve written this summer.  I’m happy to be moving...

So.  We could’ve fallen in love, Santiago and I.  Easily.  After our time together in his native New Orleans I was sure a relationship with him could be beautiful.  He gave me a perfect glimpse.  Painted a perfect pictu...

It had been a few quiet months since my encounter with Cortez (refer to “Cali + Vegas”).  So I was due a good time.  I packed up a few things and hopped in my car one weekend.  Solo.  And headed to The Big Easy to see umm… let’s call him Santiago.

I’d bee...

I’ve been on my own since last May.  Ask my best friends, and they’ll say that’s a lie.  I think it’s very true.  I have not been in a relationship in a year, and SO I’ve (technically) been on my own.  Ask my friends again, and they’ll say a year is no time, and that I...

When I meet a person of interest there’s one thing I need to know before I even consider considering (I said that right) spending any amount of time or energy on them.  Very early on I ask,

“Are you available?”

I don’t preface this question with anything.  I don’t add an...

I will tell you the truth, because it’s important.  Yesterday, I cried about the failure of my marriage to SDR.  The moment was triggered by a picture I found on my desktop at work.  It was this gorgeous photo of the three of us.  Our family.  A photo that has actually...
