It’s been a long time coming.  One relationship after the next.  A break was long over due.  A moment to catch my breath was necessary.  And I’ve been doing that.  Breathing easy now.  Mind at ease.  Heart steady.

I used to rush things.  I...

I called my brother to tell him about something new I’d tried.  Just updating him on my adventures. He laughed and told me he was so happy that I was enjoying my life.  He reminded me (as he always does) that that’s what it’s all about.  “Live your life, little sister....

When I got married at 22, one friend in particular thought I was making a mistake.  She did her best to smile for me, but I knew.  I’d known her my whole life.  She’d known me.  We’d always been deeply in tune with one another.  We used to say we were soul mates.  That...

Here’s what happened:

I began to truly identify and explore my interests much later in my twenties.  I wasn’t one of those high schoolers who knew they were an artist early on, and so hung with the other (labeled) “weirdos” and “different” kids.  I was a regular kid, ma...

I left home.  It was long overdue, but perfectly timed at the same time.  I left and moved to the city.  I considered (and still consider) California.  Near Los Angeles.  It wasn’t the time, though.  Not yet.  Time is of the essence.  And I trust timing.  Even when it...

Leaving out of my gate this evening I looked up through a window of one of several warehouses turned art studios directly across the street.  Inside, there was a man wearing a blue shirt.  He was standing and pacing the open space in a circle.  I wondered what he was p...

California was everything.  Quality time with my best friend.  Breakfast and a workout on the beach.  Spotted whales like not even two-hundred feet from the shore.  No kidding! There were some little kids in the water, and I mean, they were right there!  (Those unplann...

It was late July when I decided to come out from under a rock.  I’d been underneath it keeping still, waiting, and praying for things to get better.  

But.  I had put in my time.  I had been committed to doing my part.  I’d already given enough; no one could e...

I thought long and hard on it, and I spent a lot of time developing the idea.  I prayed and sought counsel on it, because I needed a resolution that I could live with.  It was perplexing because my heart and mind were in a fierce rivalry.  My mind preferred to expose y...
