Moving Back to Forward…

Many thoughts have been jangling around in my mind recently, triggered no doubt by moving, an exercise that is proving challenging, tiring, discouraging, and a proper pain in the arse. The angst is due largely to the fact that I can’t see this as a forward kind of move even though I know moving is …

Secrets Be Gone

If she had said goodbye once, she had said it a hundred times. She had done it so many times that she fancied herself an expert at leaving, bidding adieu. It had been hard work. There had been wobbles. But she stuck at it, practicing faithfully. Important to note, too, was that she was neither …

To connect or not to connect…

Dear friends, Today is a hurting kind of day, a day when my life weighs heavy and seems a cataclysmic mistake. Of course, not all of, but big chunks, certainly. I suppose these feelings are inextricably part of the breaking I wrote about in my last post so perhaps a better beginning would have been …

Breaking is not bad…

Dearest Friends, I want to talk to you tonight about breaking. Breaking apart, breaking up, and breaking down. Breaking the silence, breaking the glass ceiling, or breaking through are all necessities in this game we’re living. How we manage all this breaking is up to us. There’s no escaping it, by the way, there’s only …
