Walking

Credit attachedI'm in a new season of life. I don't feel strong; I don't feel emotionally capable of sounding ok or writing about all the positivity I have been. The very idea of positivity sounds patronizing to me right now.... But I'm just hurting.... And with hurt comes grief and anger. What's going on? I'm… Continue reading Walking

Or is… Continue reading Preference or Absence

Trial and error produces results that either support or debunk a theory. In the case of spirituality, though truth relies on personal beliefs for the majority, the same CAN… Continue reading This vs That

Our choices have gotten… Continue reading Lettrs: Hoorah

Disagreement Thereafter

She looked at him. He looked at her. Their eyes spoke of places they’ve vacationed, laughs they’ve had, and challenges they’ve triumphed. With a smile, subtle but genuine, she mumbled, “Your hand I will always take. Your heart I will always trust. Your love I will always call home. No matter what disagreement may come.… Continue reading Disagreement Thereafter
