Forgetting you.

I realized something important today: I don’t want to be angry anymore.  When I love, I wrap my entire body, soul and heart around that relationship and the promise of that love.  I expect too much, believe too hard and always wind up being disappointed in something that just could never be.  Love for me … Continue reading

Somewhere in the middle.

“Marco?”  Silence. “Marco??” Dead air. “Marco!”  Stillness.  Nope, no “Polo” to my “Marco.” It’s a never-ending game I play to locate the truth.  Where is the truth and more importantly, why is my truth always in hiding? I don’t know where I am right now.  As everyone walks their own path, I’m lost somewhere, straggling … Continue reading

A round peg.

Today is my 25th birthday.  While I have to admit, I’ve been depressed thinking about hitting that dreaded quarter-century mark, today I am simply happy.  My 24th year was marked by unexpected changes. Tons of doors closed during the year, but even more opened, allowing me to run down a new, beautiful path.  My heart is filled with … Continue reading

Flying by the seat of my hot pants.

Some say the beautiful stages of life occur in a circle.  The cracked tiles of heartbreak and the renewed polished mile markers of growth and improvement all mold together to form a comprehensive, circular pattern of life’s fabric. On Friday, I will be 25, and while I feel blessed to have reached this mile marker … Continue reading

The simplicity of numbers can transform with ease into a symbolic pattern of love, memory or nostalgia.  Dates in their simplest form are just numbers, but when paired with the intricate workings of the heart, those numbers take on a beautiful pattern of meaning. I had a date in my mind.  A specific date for … Continue reading

Dancing alone.

I have to admit, I’ve been on a small hiatus as of late.  Mother Nature’s constant mood swings have left me feeling blasé and my newfound obsession with pinterest.com has fulfilled my constant need for creative purging.  So, needless to say, writing has taken the back seat… until today that is. Leave it to Facebook … Continue reading

Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?

The possibilities of Wonderland.

“So many roads. So many detours. So many choices. So many mistakes.” — Sex and the City I started this blog on Christmas day 2010.  A little over one year ago, I was struggling.  I was searching like a mad woman for answers that could never be uncovered by simply picking up a rock or … Continue reading

Making it count.

My friends never cease to surprise me.  Somehow, in some amazing way, they are always there when I’m in need of a really good, nurturing, soothe-your-soul girl talk.  Last night was no exception.  Into the early hours of the morning, I spent time spilling my heart to a friend who I’ve been missing since she … Continue reading

Crazy little thing…

Our story was special.  I didn’t trust it. Our love was surprising.  I didn’t understand it. You swept me away.  I didn’t trust you. A chapter ended.  I couldn’t understand it. A new chapter began.  How do I trust it? Love is a crazy entity and lately I’ve been realizing the depth of its insanity.  … Continue reading
