Fly

Another addition for Olde Poetry Monday, this one circa 2009. Please enjoy.   I don’t get why people tell me, “never change.” If I stayed the same, my biggest dream would still be to sprout wings and fly away. It’s cute when you’re five, but I don’t think they have a major for that inContinue reading “Fly”

Me Too

I know that many people look at the world today and see it as a volatile place. I’m more or less the definition of a standard-issue, Starbucks-loving, nonreligious, straight white girl, so obviously, my life hasn’t been riddled with the kinds of difficulties faced by those who are discriminated against because of their sexual orientation,Continue reading “Me Too”

History

Every year, on the weekend closest to the anniversary of D-Day, the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum in Reading, PA holds an event called World War II weekend. Folks can come to see real WWII planes take to the air and stroll through recreated military encampments, watch FDR and Churchill drive by in classic cars, peruse genuineContinue reading “History”

Unusual Skills

You can know someone for decades, and still be surprised when they throw out seemingly random facts about themselves. Obscure little tidbits that don’t quite make it into “About Me” sections and convos because there is little opportunity to slide them in organically without sounding like you’re bragging.

Never Forget

Everyone has things that they will never forget. And I mean never. They become so ingrained they can be conjured from the depths of your brain at any moment. For me, it’s mostly music/songs that I listened to so frequently I will never forget the lyrics, no matter how much time passes. For example, IContinue reading “Never Forget”

Birthdays

Birthdays… everyone’s got one, but how a person feels about their birthday can vary. My birthday was yesterday. As someone who is not 100% comfortable with the idea of getting older – who accepts it as an inevitability, but doesn’t look forward to it – turning 27 isn’t much cause for celebration. On Saturday, IContinue reading “Birthdays”
