I go to therapy weekly. It keeps me even keeled. For the most part. This particular session waded into my youth and the constant battles within. The injuries, the pain, the mental damages from all sides from the beginning. Any time I go this deep into those memories, it puts me in a very defensive place, after years of being told I was lying, or … Continue reading Unpacking Baggage is the Worst.
Every name a totem once engraved Giving body to spirit Eternally touching heartblood Warming soul remembers Waning into woad Time and pain pays the toll We etch the names never forgotten to give pain to grief Give name to grief So we may speak it someday with smiles Telling of ledgend mostly of lore So even if minds fail The name remains Continue reading Skin Magic
I am sorry I woke you. I know you have a nice little life. I would like nothing more than to leave you be, but we are past that point. Because I need you to know what the fight is all about. It’s not your fault that you’ve been oblivious up to this point. You’ve never been afraid walking in the dark. You’ve never considered … Continue reading Amends
One time I read ‘Where the Red Ferns Grow’ for the nth time and chopped a small tree down with Dad’s 7 iron. The club was warped to shit. But I chopped down a tree! It was wind assisted.

Most of our memories are changed and stylized by … Continue reading Memories and How To Friend
From now on, if you didn’t know what direction I will be going in, this means more post, less sense. Like this haiku dump… Iridesant eyes Gemstones fleck an iris Crystaline in loves’ light Swirling scents a comfort Invoke old incantations Whispered in pasted lives Sooth the days’ soul with Quiet and calm smooth waters Blue clean glass surface Living for the now Makes it … Continue reading OK so just fair warning….
So it’s been a couple of weeks and I am a smarter woman than I was. Which is good. Try to be a little smarter every day. Be smart. Be nice. Be badass. Be better But I couldn’t get that into words. Or, at least, there was a lot in the way. Everything I want to tell all of you is here, in my hands, … Continue reading Nope. Enough. Time to do better.
HAPPY BUTT WIGGLE I recently read someone comment the words ‘I MISS YOUR FACE!’ ‘I miss your face!’ is close to the perfect thing to say to a friend. ‘I miss your face!’ says: We are super good friends and we spend a lot of time online together and send each other memes and stuff and even photos of ourselves but I really want to … Continue reading Midnight Musing

It was a cold day in March when I came across this little dog trying to cope with its wardrobe malfunction. And then a few days later: ‘Focus’ seems like a pretty abstract concept for a dog. Edit, April 10: On reflection, decided that my memories of my dog Mickey belong in another (maybe longer) post. Continue reading City dogs
