Making Peace with Me

I’m exploring ideas of solitude. Not complete solitude, but I’ve realized I’ve always rather enjoyed my own company. I also like going places with just me, or only one other person, namely, my husband. I’ve realized that I am a person who likes to think. I’m reading about others who’ve […]

The Mountains Are Calling

The sun rises in the east, and sets in the west. Moss grows on the north side of a tree. Water flows downhill, in case you ever lose your compass. The above paragraph/poem is something I wrote down, memorized, from things I was told when I was younger. ( If […]

Earthquake Weather

This implies that I smoke cigarettes. I don’t. I value my lungs. I used to smoke cigarettes, and I was excellent at it. Here’s the thing, I am a thinking person. I am also a feeling one. Shallow waters, I ain’t. I can create beautifully themed web layouts for myself […]
