Peaks + Valleys

In these times, we’re experiencing the peaks and valleys of life in a condensed period. Emotions are higher with people being more vulnerable and more fearful of what could happen. While others are bored out of their minds and want anything to do, including breaking the orders that are in place. We are inside forContinue reading “Peaks + Valleys”

Uncertain Spring

The first quote in The New York Time’s Plague Season, Through the Eyes of Writers is by Virginia Woolf. “It was an uncertain spring.” Uncertain is a good way to put it. We don’t know how long this will last or what will happen when life is allowed to slowly wake up again. There’s aContinue reading “Uncertain Spring”

PSA

Some Good News

John Krasinski launched a YouTube show the other day called Some Good News. I watched the first episode and simultaneously laughed and cried.

Whether it’s cute animal videos on TikTok (links below) or watching late-night talk show hosts work from home, anything thatContinue reading “Some Good News”

A Healthy Balance

I’m not used to having my anxiety come from external forces for an extended amount of time, especially at this magnitude.

Mantra for the Madness

The sounds of a cold echo between buildings. He ignores the coughing and sneezing, Turning up the volume on his headphones, Blasting a rock song into his brain. Everyone’s worried for no reason. That’s his mantra for the madness. He walks into a bar as rain begins to fall. There are people gathered together inContinue reading “Mantra for the Madness”

Turn Off

The tv is too loud, screaming news overwhelmingly bleak. So I leave it off and turn to books and podcasts. I turn off my phone for hours at a time. I turn off social media and embrace the quiet. I lie down with a pillow over my eyes, listening to a story. I sit byContinue reading “Turn Off”

Beginning of a New Decade – A Macro Perspective

I watch this country grapple with staggering events by joking and sharing memes as another country’s trying to gain control of powerful flames. Because that’s how difficult stuff is dealt with, creating light to process the heavy weight. I don’t have answers, I barely have questions. I hope everything will be okay. I’m just notContinue reading “Beginning of a New Decade – A Macro Perspective”
