Sunshine

Sunshine come back to me Shine on my shoulder, brighten my skin, burn my eyes Sunshine come back to me. Scorch the Earth, reflect upon the water, burn away the morning dew. Sunshine come back to me. Chase away the moody blues, vanquish the dreary winter, Burn away the gray.

Non-Descript

An ember, alight distant, unclear not yet sure of itself. The spark wobbles, weaves kindling the hope: of madness (and the madness grows) of passion (and the passion ignites) Nervous and insecure it swells consuming the gray splintering, fracturing the Non-descript figure she had become

Spin Me Right Round, Baby

It's been over a month and I still have no idea what to write about.  I've gone over it and over it and nothing exciting or interesting pops to mind.  I guess my brain is just... dry.   Well, except for me obsessing over our upcoming trips out of country.  And bills.  And trying to save...

Cruisin’

Whelp, I did it.  I went on a cruise.  My first cruise.  My first cruise and a nude cruise, to boot.  I never thought I'd catch myself on a boat in the middle of the ocean, but that's exactly where I found myself over the past two weeks.  Aside from a few tears here and... Continue Reading →

When Gray Becomes Black

Today was a bad day.   None of my days have been easy lately, but today was especially hard. This time of year is always difficult for me.  The weather starts to change.  The skies turn gray.  It rains.  It gets cold.  My mood, inevitably, darkens with the cycle of the seasons.  I become gloomy, slow,...

Life Goes On

The holidays are upon us and this year is, hopefully, closing out a year of loss and pain and anger and sadness. Over the past year we have lost a beloved pet (she was with us for 15 years), my dad, my brother, a grandmother and my daughter's innocence and security. Having lived through the...

Upside Down

My house is currently upside down.  It's a disaster.  Clean clothes need to be folded.  Dishes need to be washed.  Beds need to be made.  Toilets need to be scrubbed. The current state of my abode is just a metaphor for the entirety of my life at this moment in time. And this post is... Continue Reading →
