    Writing has been difficult lately. Usually the words flow from my fingers like water over Niagara Falls. The problem isn’t the words though. There are billions of words that rush through my mind.

  • A Moment Inside my Head… I Mean, Day. A Moment Inside my Day.

    Yesterday was amazing! And this is coming from a girl that’s suffering from a recent episode of depression, so you know it had to be good. I lay on the hard bed, my hospital gown comfortably tucked around me. The… Read More ›

  • Another Slice of Cake Please?
