Parker’s Journey

At the beginning of the year, I blogged about wanting to send care packages to those that were recovering from head injuries. As a person that is still recovering, I understand the challenges that are faced and how important it is to have a support system. While I still share that sentiment, it has since expanded.

These past  few weeks have have been absolutely chaotic, filled to the brim with tears and then there was yesterday. Continue reading

And all that Jazz: An Ode to friendship

In an attempt to reconnect with my past
or jog some sort of memory
I’ve taken to reading correspondences
from those once near and dear to me-
colorful interactions

Dear World…

*BREAKING NEWS*
Please excuse me whilst I interrupt the regularly scheduled program:

Dear World,

Is anyone listening? Are you tuning into the overwhelming amount of destruction? There is an epidemic sweeping our nation- the disregard for  human life. Nearly every place that one looks, life is effortlessly being taken. Governments, terrorists groups, law enforcement and every day people, have become judge and jury, delivering sentences of execution. Countless beautiful beings, are no longer in existence. They have been reduced to a painful, lingering memory. Their legacies cut short, their families-forgotten. Continue reading

Reflections

Hello….is There Anyone Out There?

Since I’ve sustained a head injury, I question everything. Each day, I am like a five year old child asking why is something a certain way, followed by another why once I receive the answer.  Today, I wanted to know how hens laid eggs and if a rooster was an absolute necessity. Continue reading

Unbreakable

My younger sister  is on Spring break and my mum had work. After I prepared her breakfast (buttermilk biscuits from scratch), I needed to take a nap. When I awoke, we somehow had a heart to heart. My younger sister is 15 years old-and a freshman in H.S. She came into this world, literally fighting for her life. Born several months premature and weighing just over a lb, her entry into this world was filled with complications. Even today, she must go to the hospital at the first sign of a cold. Continue reading

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threshold

As I stood looking at this building, nearly demolished and the beauty surrounding it, I had a moment of acceptance. I must let go of the old and painful to rebuild and embrace whats to come. (loss of daughter, moving to a new home, embrace brain injury/recovery, establishing a new business and shortcomings)

The Birth of a Lifelong Underdog

I suppose I’ve always been an Underdog. Even before I was born:

My mum was quite sick. Upon going to the hospital, she learned that I had not descended but was developing inside her Fallopian tubes. To save my mother’s life,  she was urged to terminate the pregnancy. She returned for the scheduled Continue reading
