Cocoon

The past season has been a difficult season that has kept me from writing, but my heart yearns to write again, to put into words all that has been brewing in my heart and mind this past year.  It is a slow process, slower than it has ever been before.  I am working at overcoming fear and learning … More Cocoon

Love Written

Shallow pleasure comes and goes with its precipitous highs and abysmal lows. When I’m high it’s as though I’m soaring, but when I’m low, … More I Choose Love
