The Joys of Writing: There’s No Place Like Home


Heroes and villains alike can never seem to get back to it fast enough. Be it a lair or a castle. Or a cabin in the mountains away from the world while submerging themselves fully into the true nature of it. Be it to celebrate, mourn, or lick their various wounds, seen and unseen, visible … Continue reading The Joys of Writing: There’s No Place Like Home

Heroes Journey…


The true heroes pull value from within. A true hero spins gold with what she's given. I didn't get here by doing what I'm told.   If I said gold and you saw green, then, true love, I'm convinced you've never seen, the smile, by my hand reflecting from a strangers face, that's how we win … Continue reading Heroes Journey…

Music for Writing or Studying


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zyCjefN4lQ Piano and Cello Symphony  Hey all you studious students, and restless writers! What a beautiful way to start out the week. I woke up this morning to a slick driveway, perfect for sliding across on the way to warm up my boyfriends pick up before he left for the day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KMCaac1E1ZQ Piano Music has … Continue reading Music for Writing or Studying

Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down


I had a thought while running today that really stuck with me. I think it stuck with me because it was the perfect example of why I try not to say things out loud until I've properly thought them through. When words leave our lips too soon, before they are ready, they tend to leave … Continue reading Running Thoughts Are Better Left Written Down

Adjacent Titles: Chapter One


The View Imagine looking down from the mountain side after pulling off the winding road for a moments peace. A moment unhindered by the heat blistering through the slitted vents at either side of your head. The same heat that's given you the strength and clarity to drive almost an hour just before dawn, to … Continue reading Adjacent Titles: Chapter One

Chapter One: This is Your Home Now


Olivia sat hard on the box spring, the checkered comforter barely cushioned her landing as a pain shot up her spin through a loud creaking beneath her sore bum. "Ouch!" She frowned and rolled to the side leaving room to rub the sore spots. It was official, she was going to hate this place as … Continue reading Chapter One: This is Your Home Now

Half-lit Cigarettes


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3SE1WaaNzW0 Bad for each other like half lit cigarettes, half way toxic but we teeter on the edge, not quite committed enough to death, just bad enough to weaken your will, I'll keep you asleep like a sleeping pill. Living life like a wedge, standing between each other and greatness, you are a genius and … Continue reading Half-lit Cigarettes

Day 2: Quiet


There is a verse that always took my breath, one I will carry close to my heart until we part by death. I put it to use for the joy that it brings, I keep it as a reminder, life is in the little things. A new venture and the courage to try it, a … Continue reading Day 2: Quiet

I’ve Loved You Since the Day I Met You


I Get it! I am on my way, while you whisper of a different play, you make me nervous on purpose, while feeding me lies, I'm leaving behind me a thousand failed tries. There are some days that I've felt so lost, sought out mindless self-indulgence regardless of the cost, but I can't stay lean if I … Continue reading I’ve Loved You Since the Day I Met You

I See You


  Sometimes it begins with a picture, sometimes with a single sound, and then before you know it, you are out adventure bound, the structure of life was never meant to be rigid, buying into the cold cut American dream just seems frigid, peddling slices of humanity one piece at a time, selling the lot for … Continue reading I See You
