I’ve been thinking a lot. About my friend’s new puppy. And the dark shadow that prevents her from feeling safe by herself. She cuddles this baby thing, gives him a name. Would he have found his mother if not for the trauma that prefaced his arrival in her life? She tells me his name over […]
Like a flower bud meeting the light of dawn Rays of sun unfurl my layers, akin to petals With nourishment that begs for a presence That is total, unequivocal. I sit perched on a hill near Kypseli. To the west I see the source scattered Over a wide swathe of sea, shimmering. Children play football […]
How strange, the mind. How it parses life out between chapters in two separate timelines. The living stories and the ones that occur in the grips of sleep. So odd!

A Rant About Being Young and Beautiful
To be young is to have a clean slate. To be young and beautiful is godliness. Yes, young and beautiful is the fantasy. The reality of inhabiting this sphere is far less mystical. People forget that youthfulness also comes with a lack of understanding. That being so fresh and green comes with a devastating reality […]
A Personality Assembled
On and on and on. Building blocks of what makes us human, cemented into routine.
What Am I Doing Again?
Oh, right. Trying for the someteenth time to get my voice out there.

The glamour of being told time and again that […]
