Last night I did something new.
I ditched my comfort zone and
Shared a piece of writing publicly.
Spoken sharing is different from online.
The web gives you some distance; (more…)
Below is a photo of me
At 16 – summer before grade 11
Right before I cut it off
Growing that hair took a while
And I loved having it – mostly
Then…it felt like a burden
Cutting all that hair – It felt
Good to be freed from it
Charged with the task of waiting
For news, for whispers of fortune
Not a patient person at all
C’mon, destiny! Either get with me (more…)
The younger me didn’t trust herself.
Ignoring my inner voice who knew,
Just knew the right way forward.
Placing my destiny in other hands.
Malleable, pliable me; shaped and molded,
I doubted the wise owl within. (more…)
Hold on tight, my little one.
Life is one crazy, bumpy ride.
It’s what you make it though.
Grumbling the dips, “woebegoning” the lows (more…)
What I like about being busy
is how boredom gets obliterated.
Who has time for yawns when
life is leaping with unbridled opportunity? (more…)
You may think I have surrendered.
Far from it. Instead, I rejoice.
Doubt you may, as you bluster.
But I give way in anticipation,
To sweeter days that lie ahead.
I meant to write this post yesterday but got barreled down by laryngitis and a bad head cold. The funny thing is I was sick last week too. Oh, and a couple of weeks before that.
And then in January…well, I won’t go into details about how sick my entire family was. Let’s just say I wouldn’t have wished our illness on anyone.
Simply put, my family has been on one big ride of sick this winter. I know we’re not alone in this either. Tons of friends and family unwillingly hopped on this train too.
Yes, this winter has been one big blegh, cough and sneeze. (more…)
looking upon trees, branches shivered bare
from Wind gusting its boastful breeze
makes me impatient for verdant spring (more…)
A trip to the library – fun!
Adventures and discoveries wait for us
Tumbling from pages opened, considered…then
perhaps selected, set aside for checkout
Yes, people who visit them know:
Libraries are a collection of treasures
Made all the richer when shared
