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


A Weekend Getaway Featured On Cosmopolitan!

It’s hard to face the facts. One of my facts is how my marriage has suffered since having our child. I missed conversation. I missed our time. But one trip changed helped reignite some old flames.

Rosaries Hang Over A Machete

She comes to you with a kaleidoscope filled with multi-colored worries. Blood red drenched massacre overrides love. Orange, yellow sun covered evening as people shed clear tears. Blue sadness pours over the summer of 2016. Green mountains hide her away. Lush coverage she traveled back into, unaware of what happened. She knew something had happened. Her best friend handed his…

A Misfit Is Born

Cleaning out the attic, I stumbled across a picture. I don’t have many pictures from my past. Most of them were lost in between moves and crashing electronics. Pictures stored on hard drives within old computers. Some of them were stuffed into a shoebox, and forgotten. Then we found a dust covered shoebox. Our hands were already black with decades…

Yes, I’m A Real Mother Featured On Scary Mommy Today!

Sticks and stones, they’ve been thrown my way. Words do hurt me. I thought when I decided to become clean, the hardest part to my addiction would be over. In some ways, it’s never over. The judgement towards the kind of person I used to be seems to collide with the person I am today. The judgement doesn’t allow me…


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…



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…
