Take a Break, please!

I came home from work last night and wrote a to do list of items that still had to get done after dinner. My chest started feeling tight and I got beyond tired out of the blue. I made dinner and we sat down to eat when I started to feel a little bit off. […]

Okay, I will cut you (and maybe me) some slack…

I’m pretty hard on myself and sometimes that translates to me also being hard on other people I come into contact with. I am not the loosey, goosey California girl that takes things as they come and when things get tough says, “Ommmmm.” I am a list-making, on-time running, planner-using nutcase that likes everything to […]

Take the Unknown and Make it Known

The scariest thing in the world is stuff we don’t know. It’s why so many folks are afraid of gay people, they just don’t have any personal experience with someone gay to know they’re not any different than straight people. The unknown is always the scariest. But the cool thing about the unknown is once […]

To The Sun and The Moon and Back

“We love you to the sun and the moon and back” said Dad as he turned on my night light and kissed me on the head. It was really more symbolic than anything. Both of my parents knew it would be a matter of minutes before they heard the soft patter of my feet on […]
