Welcome & Thank You For Stopping By!

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do." Steve Jobs

Strangers On A Slide

I cannot tell you the exact date this story happened. My sister and I were young. Our family had no digital cameras or cell phones, they didn’t exist. If they had been invented, rich people were buying them along with their thousand dollar VCRs. Yes, once upon time a VCR cost over a grand and Betamax sat on store shelves.…

I Have To Go See About An I Can

Can’t be a writer. Not today. The emotions are slathered on too thick. Can’t shake the doubt. Can’t compete. Can’t be on their level. Can’t. Can’t. Can’t. Not today. I’m a hypocrite, the largest form of one. I am a floating Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade balloon extravagantly large hypocrite. Look at me, I can do everything. I am the best writer. I…

Crumbs

There are crumbs on my couch. Speckled flecks from a leftover dinner. There are crumbs on my floors. I stepped on a Cheerio. The force of my foot caused a whole piece to turn into dusty crumbs. When I walked by those tan particles, the wind from my movement caused those Cheerio crumbs to scatter. A life lived in crumbs. …

My Unique Utopia

I see a place where hate cannot reside. Society is accepting. People don’t struggle to fit in because they each have a place to call home. They have a safe door to shut, and their fridges are full. They don’t know hunger. They don’t walk out in fear during the morning hours. Their windows can be left open and there…

Sunday Morning Rising

The child went to bed an hour later, almost an hour and a half later than his normal bedtime if I were to be exact. Wild Saturday night shenanigans happened. The husband and I taught him to kick a soccer ball; in the house. Yes, he kicked a ball in the house. To be fair and honest, he hardly kicked…

Marie Antoinette and Me on Sammiches Today!

There are always people from the past we hold a certain infatuation and idolization for. Mine is Marie Antoinette. It started from a lonely night in an attic apartment. I watched a Sofia Coppola movie, and then I watched it again. This night happened 9 years ago for me. Since then I’ve ordered every book I could find and immersed…

Another Round

There are the times where writers can’t write. Or they won’t write. They just don’t want to do it. I’m no different. You can’t make me write; never could make myself do it. Except for those 300,000 essays college professors made me write. I wrote them. They were probably poorly written. I don’t remember half of the crap I wrote…

Cutting Down Pine Trees

“In the pines, in the pines Where the sun don’t ever shine I would shiver the whole night through” Nirvana “Where Did You Sleep Last Night” I’m weary from shivering. My heart aches from having to consistently walk away. I am capable of running and having my feet rip open the cracks in the concrete. Don’t follow me. Don’t track me…
