THE LOVE THAT MONEY CAN’T BUY

I  read a lot of articles written for entrepreneurs. They are all written neatly, structured and optimized. There is no emotion in them. There is nothing to take them off course of the USEFUL that they are. It’s never personal. There is a formula to success, rules that the best follow. The results appear to […]

“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.” -Anne Morrow Lindbergh

“Every book is a quotation; and every house is a quotation out of all forests, and mines, and stone quarries; and every man is a quotation from all his ancestors.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

I am next to him in bed. He is reading his book. I am reading mine. His book looks boring. I decide this as I am peering over his shoulder instead of at the pages I wish he were reading with me. My book is better. I tell him that as I vie for his […]

UNBREAK MY HEART: RELATIONSHIP STATUS #complicated

I gave him my heart. Yes. It was an easy sacrifice, a necessary evil if you will. Of course, I trusted that he would cherish the gift of it. I think the point you miss is understanding value. How could he possibly know my value? In the beginning we are but skin, hair, and teeth. […]

HAPPILY EVER AFTER: THERE ARE MANY PATHS TO THE SAME END

Things are going really, really, REALLY, good for me right now. I’m emphasizing because I remember some months back being a different story. Three months back I was crying my eyes out with a broken heart. We broke up again. This time for good. Drama much? I do not know why I let myself suffer […]

WHY TAKE MY MAGIC AWAY?

“You took down our kisstletoe,” my heart sank to see he had reached up to remove one of the last few traces of me left in his bedroom, that used to be our room together. He glanced at the mistletoe like it was nothing. “Yeah, it’s not Christmas anymore.” I grew quiet, dim like a […]

HE LOVES HER MORE THAN YOU LOVE ME

Dear Mrs. Anderson, It will be my great pleasure to see you today at five. I will admit that I still have not edited those few last pictures I missed. There were about 20 images, the last of your wedding, on another memory card. I will finish them up before I see you and they […]

SHE KISSED THE BOYS AND MADE THEM CRY

“Be nice!” he pointed at me begrudgingly. “Don’t be mean to the guys who are messaging you. They are reaching out in kindness. Be nice to them.” I folded my arms and stuck my tongue out at him. “I do not want to be nice. I can’t handle the level of stupid that most guys […]
