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
now fractured Continue reading

Inconsolable….Unconditional Love

The past few days I’ve been quite solemn. Each day, I logged into WordPress-hoping that writing would ease the pain. And each day, I was incapable of putting my emotions into words. After an hour of quite literally breaking down and sobbing today, I am finally able to write. Continue reading

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.

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.

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)

Moments of Nostalgia

I absolutely bask in stories filled with Nostalgia. They usually express simplistic memories, that provide comfort, years down the line. I too, have experienced and even created nostalgic moments, more so when I lived in Korea: Continue reading
