This week was the absolute week from hell. Among my friends, I am usually the one people go to for advice. And I don’t mind, because I like helping people (and my friends) out. And, generally, my advice is decent. Generally. This week was a week of huge projects, mental breakdowns, and collapsing relationships. And hell, that might just be me. Huh, hadn’t thought of that. ...
Life in motion
I often wonder why we hold on when it only hurts more, than it would if we just let go. The words I would like to say, I just can’t. I wish I was more brave, but I have never been good at speaking out when there are such feelings on the line. I wish I could just say what it is I want to say, and not worry about the reply. But I do, so I probably won’t. And it makes me sad.
October 20 is National Bullying Awareness Day
Things weren’t always easy. In fact, early on, they were anything but easy. Spending time with the more or less same group of people for roughly ten years can be rewarding, but it can also be painful. Particularly if you happened to be on the outlier of that group.

I have been worried about my immediate future these days, or at least my future in the next few months, where I am trying to make big changes. I have...

Save it for tomorrow Just let me get some sleep in Let me remand I wasn’t born a failure Tonight I feel we’re sinking And I’m thinking once again So I say goodnight To dreams that won’t be realized I can’t sleep with desperation By my side The memories start to fade Now I live for better days Last night was wrong, it’s morning So tired of these...
I enjoy poetry, on occasion. I can’t say I have any real talent for it, but every now and then I enjoy writing Haiku. — Shimmer, she told me Autumn leaves dancing, they fall A cold breeze whispers ~ Time brings clarity The warmth of spring on my skin Doors once closed, open ~ Sing, fear not the night New paths appear before us The gate is open

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexatious to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you...
