Fiction? Pt III

Fiction? Fiction? Pt II  After another sleepless night, Anna began to believe that she was already dead; her body and mind just had not caught up yet.  She found herself pacing through her house, trying to clean. She had company coming, and she realized her house had become a disaster over the past month. She... Continue Reading →

Phew

I wrote this on my personal Facebook, and I think it belongs here too: Since I did reiki, I've had a lot of emotions trying to break loose - sometimes it happens with different yoga positions too.

Rag Doll

My soul twin, beautiful sister, and one of the most incredibly talented poets I know, Yaskhan gave me the privilege and joy of collaborating on a poem with her.  Together, we created Rag Doll.  (If you don't already follow her, please do, you'll be glad you did!) Well, I'll be damned With a swift kick... Continue Reading →

Depression is Selfish

No, Seriously, Suicide is Not Selfish After Chester Bennington killed himself, I tried to stay off Facebook.  I knew what I would see, and I did not want to see it.  Like so many, I have been a fan of Linkin Park since I was a teenager.  Linkin Park helped me through one of the...
