WIP – Niagara – Chapter 7.

It should be known that before you read this, if you choose to do so, that this book has already been written. I am just now putting it all together, piece by piece (each piece is from a different year, which absorbs completely different outcomes and is one of the reasons I find it hard…

this or that.

If this really a glitch in some twisted digital display, I don’t blame anyone for wanting to bow-out early. I have. Many times. Maybe we are A.I. castaways from a future we didn’t intend to invent. Gaming was never my thing, anyway. If I were to set out to play the game, why not do…

Reality.

Some of the best examples are simple. In college, some 20 years ago, it was our job to think outside of the box. I was an art and psych major, fully open to soak in everything that lit my soul on fire. I set out to dig deep and have not stopped. My goal was…

A Lesson in Mindfulness Before it was Cool.

Not many pix to show from France or London. In fact, I have none left. But I was there. 100%. And I remember it all. It’s mostly because we were 20/year-olds in 2001. Even using the latest in digital cameras, we didn’t take pictures like we do today. I was enrolled in photography courses at…

A Grizzly Tail.

Say hello to the world’s newest (& cutest) therapy dog, Grizzly, a terrier mix rescue. Born February 1st, I brought him home at 3.5 months old, and he is already showing signs of being a great candidate for therapy training! “I am born knowing two things- loyalty and love. You must teach me everything else….

Too Much Time on Your Hands?

Next time someone says I have too much time on my hands, I’m just gonna say, “yup and thanks for noticing.” It’s how I once built a career by fiddling with a paint program at the age of 11. It’s how I now can finally travel to see friends I’ve made all over the globe…

Cadence, Chapter 8 | Glitch in the Matrix

I was slaying dragons at a full-time job as an Associate Creative Manager for a popular vacation company and as a part-time Barista at Starbucks. Needless to say, I was burnt out and that fact didn’t help the arising symptoms of full-blown mania. This was shortly before I was in diagnosed with Bipolar. What tipped…

Run.

There’s a trap door down the stone path that leads to another rock bottom, or two. My millionth run isn’t meant for you. There’s a lady on the couch in this drunken dream of mine, sipping on the koolaide just to be confined. We wonder where we’ve gone to on this road to the inhumane,…

Behind the Scenes

“She was never crazy. She just didn’t let her heart settle in a cage. She was born wild, and sometimes we need people like her. For it’s the horrors in her heart which cause the flames in ours. And she was always willing to burn for everything she has ever loved.” Robert M. Drake “The…
