Some say we fall a little short in this department. Technically, I guess you are in good proportion to the rest of my five foot one and a half body. There’s not more of you than there is of torso so overall it works. Up until this year we have gotten along pretty well. Continue reading Dear Legs
I’ve always found it fascinating that you need light to exist, but seek to hide. What makes you so mysterious? Why are we afraid of what lurks inside of you? Continue reading Dear Shadows
Dear First Love,
And they called it puppy love…
I remember my mom using that expression when you and I broke up. I hated her for saying it. It was cruel. I knew what she meant. That it wasn’t real. That it didn’t count. But that wasn’t true. Continue reading Dear First Love
Love & Peace,
Dear Younger Me,
I have a lot I want to tell you. And so much that I don’t. I think you deserve to find out most of it for yourself. That’s what will serve you better in the long run. Experience. As tempting as it is to tell you things that I think would save you pain and heartache, I know those are the times you will learn the most, and grow wiser. You’ll have to trust me on this. Continue reading Dear Younger Me
There was a time when you and I did not often meet. I was so busy being a wife, a mother to my 3 sons, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a volunteer, a working person, a home manager, and, well, you remember. It was exhausting. Continue reading Dear Rest
Oh dear books what you mean to me!
Filling my head full of wonder with your words.
I can’t get enough of you. Continue reading Dear Books
What a pair we make! You give me a sense of magic, a secret knowing, an understanding beyond reason, a story without words. For so long I have known you. At first I was scared. I couldn’t comprehend how our relationship worked. Continue reading Dear Intuition
So many people have a hard time moving on. I’ve heard the word ‘stuck’ a lot recently. When I think of that word it brings an image of quicksand sucking me down rendering me unable to move. The reality is that quicksand does not suck you down, in fact, it’s only a few feet deep. But the more you struggle in it, the faster you will sink. If you just relax, your body will float in it (because your body is less dense than the quicksand), then you can paddle to safety. So when you get tired of feeling stuck, stop struggling, try floating in your quicksand and calmly paddle to safety. Or ask someone for a hand and pull yourself out. And move on…
Peace & Love 🙂
