I heard a man exclaim how he lost an hour of his day, the pain in his voice, as the sun set later and the night stood quiet, echoed through the air. Babies and pets don’t care the clocks have jumped forward, the ones looking after them walk around feeling dread. The morning starts anContinue reading “Lost An Hour”

The books I read mirror my experience back to me, reflected in a way I wish I could say but the words never came. Every page I turn, I highlight what resonates, almost every page has a sentence that will stick with me long after I finish. The beauty of storytelling is seeing the humanContinue reading “Not Alone”
I remember walking around the playground in elementary school talking with my friend, who is still my friend today, about half-birthdays. She imagined celebrating a birthday in May while I dreamed of celebrating in February. I pictured blowing out candles in winter and having a party for the fun of it. A half year ofContinue reading “Half-Birthday”
Joy In The Air
Birds chirp on a Sunday snow is finally melting the wave of cold weather haunting us all year leaving us shivering in sweaters and muddy boots has finally let up. The songs they sing fills the air with joy and the morning with hope.

Seems like too many years since the pandemic started and at least ten extra years on to the last decade of my life. It’s been a very cold and gloomy start to the year.Continue reading “First Month Almost Finished”

Only when we become awareContinue reading “Self-Talk”
Ice stays on the road for weeks. More snow falls, melting on the main roads quickly, remaining on the side ones building on the bumps that have remained since last year.
Don’t Give Up
Yesterday, I published an essay on Medium about the creative process of making my short film, Torn-Between. It’s been 5 years since I published it on YouTube. What a crazy 5 years it’s been. It’s surreal to look back on now. In a way, I am amazed I was able to make it. Honestly, thereContinue reading “Don’t Give Up”
