Sun Tired

The sun has zapped all of my energy. I’m a shell of a human being. Where did I go? To sleep in my thoughts while my body leans against a couch, staring at nothing in particular, wondering what time it is with no way to check. Only the simple questions remain, emotions have been drainedContinue reading “Sun Tired”

Both Things Can Be True

For so many years, I lived in fear of what other people have to say. I was always afraid of what could happen if I spoke my truth. If I shared something, what would people think? What would they say? What would the inevitable response be? Recently, I realized it doesn’t matter what other peopleContinue reading “Both Things Can Be True”

Unexpected Stop

I was driving down a side road, surrounded by pine trees. For some reason, this road reminded me of girl scout camp when I was younger. It must have been all of the pine trees and the way the sun hit my eyes behind my sunglasses. I was a mile down the road, surrounded byContinue reading “Unexpected Stop”

Mikey’s Wild Night

Mikey was so obsessed with going outside that he snuck out into the night when the door was cracked and no one was watching. Poor little old guy got stuck outside, pacing back and forth in the newly fallen snow on the porch. His meows woke up the sleeping dog upstairs but the dog didn’tContinue reading “Mikey’s Wild Night”

hope

Last year at this time, uncertainty lingered heavy. There were too many unknowns, with people getting sick and many dying, no one knew what was going on.
