I’m Alright

These last few weeks have been weird. That’s the best way I can put it, they’ve been weird. We’re living in weird times. And who knows when that will change. As things begin to open up and people are crowding into places because they want to have brunch, I can’t help but wonder if thisContinue reading “I’m Alright”

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. I’ve been relishing in good content as much as I possibly can. 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”

But, I want to share information and stories with you I think are important, along with some positivity. The blog postContinue reading “Part Two”

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”

Settle into the Moment

I’m surrounded by people. I do not speak. I half-listen as my mind bounces around from one thought to another.  I catch words here and there. I clap and don’t realize I’m clapping.

The green one, not the one with no life.You won’t look at it until someone tells you.But then you look atContinue reading “Look at the Green Grass”

Person two takes what person one said to heart and accuses person one of meaning something they didn’t because the communication wasn’t clear. ThisContinue reading “The Case of Misunderstanding”

Hard Truths

Underneath the surface of your skin lies truths about yourself that you refuse to acknowledge exist. Character flaws, irrational fears, bad habits, annoyances, troubles letting go, many more I can think of that make up who you are. We all want to be the reliable narrators of our own stories but we’re the worst narrators, especiallyContinue reading “Hard Truths”

The Construct of Silence

I used to be uncomfortable with silence among others. Sitting and not saying a single word was my personal hell. To be honest, it still can be. Why aren’t they saying anything?Is it that hard to start a conversation? Say, hi…..no, that’s too much. I once went on a hike with my family, and myContinue reading “The Construct of Silence”
