An abstract painting: bright orange and yellow, broadstrokes.

Reading Time: 5 minutes Fourteen weeks migraine free, then bam! Over the weekend I was struck with a migraine: a day and a half of pain and puke. “This is painful” I tell myself. I allow myself to feel it and accept that yes, it’s unpleasant; adding a reminder: that it too shall pass. That’s unlike last year, from […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes “To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.” (Lewis B.

Define Me.

June 17, 2021

Reading Time: 3 minutes We are living in a society of extremist definitions and polarities. Whether the conversations are about politics, diets, religion, or anything in between, there seems to be a growing mentality that “we” are against “them”. This is blatantly obvious on social media.

Reading Time: 7 minutes I am a woman and an embodiment of the Divine Feminine energy.

Reading Time: 6 minutes There is no soft way to put it into words when you have been sexually abused as a child, how that defined your sexuality and messed up your perception of friendship and intimacy.

A photo of a woman in a cave looking toward the light coming from the opening.

Reading Time: 4 minutes I have been meaning write about my perception of the darkness for quite a while, and have written a few poems about it. Now it’s time to try prose!
