You creep in when the darkness falls, shit, you’re there any time of day. Your job, to point out the gaping space between me and the world. It’s there, it’s palpable. The space. The emptiness. I almost believe you. Your running commentary is dependable…. “They don’t get me. I have to do it all, […]Read more "Dear Loneliness….."
Fuck. I’m resisting even documenting this. It’s how I know, I need to. In a couple of weeks, September 6 will mark 5 years since you left. It continues to feel like yesterday. I feel like, since I’ve turned your death into my biggest life lesson, I should be able to open my eyes without […]Read more "Dear Mom…"

Here’s a funny fact about me……I don’t Love writing blogs when things are going amazing. I want to be quiet, cause, you know, everyone is tired of hearing about my awesome life. They want to read about the crappy stuff….. I did a course over the weekend and was reminded that we all have […]Read more "The vision emerges……"
Wow, it appears it’s been a month since I blogged. When we had the earthquake out here, I wrote a blog post. I quickly decided to never share it with you all. I sent it to Ainsley, who promptly Thanked me for it and told me to post it. I didn’t. Honestly, I didn’t want to share that […]Read more "Vulnerability, Grief and an Earthquake…."
Well, off I go. A week has passed and I’m again, on days of planes. My overnight and half day in Toronto is pretty exciting since I will again be with friends… And…..
