Day 10: Sisterhood of Bloggers Award

I feel alive when I write.  It is the purest water for my soul.  As I write these 31 days, I'm learning that the craft of writing requires consistency as much as inspiration.  Artistic creation of any kind is not for the faint of heart. This act of bringing a new...

Day 4: A Letter For The Seekers of the Still

Day 4: A Letter For The Seekers of the Still

You know who you are. You are the brokenhearted. You are the survivors. You are the lonely and confused.  You are the wise.  You are the caregivers.  You are the loved ones.  You know there is more than the visible.  You have won, and you have lost.  You have been a...

Make Me Broken

Make Me Broken
