Get Out of Your Own Way

I wish I could say I have writer’s block. It wouldn’t be a total lie. However, perhaps conversely to much of the internet I don’t feel anonymous behind the keyboard. Rather, I feel exposed and vulnerable. I like to hide from things that are hard and scary. So I avoid writing. The other day in… Continue reading Get Out of Your Own Way

I Stopped Writing

I’ve done myself – and perhaps you – a disservice and I’m sorry. I stopped writing. A quick jaunt through my previous posts and I smiled – I’m proud of the work I did; why did I stop? Fear. Right. The truth is I did lose my mind a little. And as evidenced by literature,… Continue reading I Stopped Writing

Well, I’ve been quite busy with— Stretching it… Truly I’m not all that interesting, I was just— Scared. Yes. And wasn’t transparency the purpose of this blog?… Continue reading Have You Forgotten Me?

He Would be 62 Today

With the exception of this blog, I have not mentioned my dad today. Which is unusual because today is his birthday. I always post a memory on Facebook about it but I avoid FB like the plague these days so I didn’t bother. Which means I also didn’t get the few supportive words I get… Continue reading He Would be 62 Today
