A few weeks ago I had a dream that I lived in Gotham. This was strange, because I've always been more of a Marvel X-Men fan than a DC Batman girl.

Last week a cold front moved in, bringing in crisp air and ample rain. The skies are silver and gray. The mountains, half hidden by mists, are dusted with snow.

I thought I wanted more, but I'm in over my head. The water's getting deeper, and I'm too tired to tread. I'm slowly slipping under- anyone … Continue reading Overwhelmed Sea
I'm not ready to talk about some things. There are some parts of my life that I still can't bring myself to talk about- at least, not in a serious way. It's one thing to make a joke hinting at that hidden darkness, but it's another thing to open the curtains and expose it to … Continue reading Do You Want to Talk About It?
"Don't be a 'writer', be writing". I love and hate Faulkner's famous advice. I hate it because I know he's right and I haven't been writing much lately. Between craziness at work, home life, and my business- I am have almost no energy to be creative. At least, that is the excuse I've been making … Continue reading Be Writing, Not just a Writer
I've been with my current employer for 2.5 years. I have held 4 positions- all upwards moving in that time. My Quality Assessments have always been in the high 90's, and since January my scores have been a consistent 100%.
