This Child

So, I know I do this a lot, but I just stumbled upon an old poetry assignment from high school... based upon the first Walt Whitman poem I ever read. I thought it was lost, but it was on an old flash-drive I recently dug up. Considering the huge effect that Walt Whitman's poems have... Continue Reading →

Just a Moment…

This week, landscapers came to do some yard work at our house. So, being the occasionally nice human being that I am, I figured I would park my car in the street so they could pull into the driveway, which would hopefully make it easier for them to get their work done. The issue is,... Continue Reading →

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 in... Continue Reading →

Sentimental

Sentimentality - it's both a blessing, and a curse, when you attach memories to objects. It becomes so difficult to let them go. Or, in some cases, far too easy. I had something mentally and emotionally taxing happen to me in the January of my last year of college. When it happened, I was wearing... Continue Reading →

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. Well, I'm definitely not rife with such... Continue Reading →

Recharge

The past couple of weeks have been an odd combination of relaxing and wild - hence the total lack of blog posts last week. But it has also been a much-needed breather. At the end of last month, my best friend and I drove down to Williamsburg, Virginia to visit another friend who moved there... Continue Reading →

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, I... Continue Reading →

Sorry for…

...The lack of a real post today. I've currently got potential projects in the air that I'm trying to juggle, and it will take some adjustment to my schedule if all comes into fruition. But, to make up for it, here's a sneaky peek - if all goes well, this bad boy will be getting... Continue Reading →
