To begin.

Daily meditations, yoga stretches, long walks, a good book - I do these things to quiet my thoughts and center. But now, I'm being asked to hold a magnifying glass over my thoughts and memories every morning, and then re-center myself from where ever the chapter/exercise took me? And I'm doing this voluntarily? Correct.

the year of everything.

Well, this is a big week.  A big week on many levels.  I'm experiencing all kinds of feels.  But more on that later. It's been a quite awhile since I've written and posted a blog, and I feel like I should catch you up on the happenings... A year ago today,  I was preparing to... Continue Reading →

The first.

I've sat down to write this more than a handful of times over the last week or so, trying to share some recent and sensitive news with everyone.  Every time, I carve out an hour and I just start to type.  And every time, my free-flow of emotions settle differently, my "message" varying with each...

“I talked myself out of it.”

It's 2AM and I can't sleep. There is nothing particularly wrong.  Sometimes the brain just wants to create...and in my case, that means I'm writing.

I will never, in my lifetime, forget December 2, 2010. I was sleeping in bed alongside my "work-in-progress" boyfriend at the time, in my blue bedroom, in my new house in Hermitage, TN.  I woke up to my phone vibrating on the nightstand.  I picked it up and immediately saw a photo of a baby in an incubator, all...
