Run out of comfort with things that are smaller than you are. Run out of things that numb your feelings. Run out and findContinue reading “Run Out”
My New Year’s Resolution: To not relive the same year, over again. I don’t know if it will be “happy,” but by God, it will be new. New standards. New boundaries. New confidence. New patterns.

The fact that I suffer is probably normal. How long I like to suffer is probably not.
Sometimes, I just need to be alone with my pen. For then, I am not alone at all. I am in the company of everyone I ever knew, And I am everywhere I have ever been. And I get to travel back there And speak with them again, laugh again And bring them back toContinue reading “Alone”
