Life is never long enough. The words never come when you need them to. Time never cuts anyone a break. Grief isn’t saved for after someone’s gone. Sometimes all we need is company. There’s less words now than there were before. Less story telling. Not so many “remember when’s.” More “mhmms.” More silent hand holding. … Continue reading Old love, real love.
I recently read a post from a friend of mine on Goodness Collective revolving around the theme home. Well, not that recently if I’m being honest. But it has taken me since then to gather my thoughts. As a teenager all I could think about was getting out of my hometown. Moving far away. For… Continue reading Home
Hey y’all! If you’re anything like me, life consists of a daily glass of vino. Most days two. And there’s nothing worse than coming home from work to find you finished the last of the bottle the night before. It’s probably the same day that it’s 30 degrees outside and the few miles to the… Continue reading Club W

The novella stems from the collective experience… Continue reading Summer Writing Project
I’ve been dormant for far too long, I know. But I haven’t been doing nothing. I have surrendered to academia, at least for a few more months. Come May I will finally have that degree and with it plenty of time to do the things I love – write, travel, photograph, eat. This past week… Continue reading Spring Break 2015
This was taken on the night I arrived on the island, New Years Eve. I love the combination of the elements – fire and water. Again this photograph includes a great deal of reflection.
