SHE’S WORRY

Worry is a creative soul Knocking sense around Like alphabet blocks Building wooden castles Stuffing them with dreams Just to watch them burn Carrying extra demons In case the devil alone Isn’t enough to destroy The human she’s become

SEA JUMPING

I don’t write much anymore.  I haven’t needed to. I started my blog years ago as a way of releasing the voices in my head that had grown so loud I couldn’t trust reality anymore.  These voices played havoc on my relationships and nearly cost me my life.  At the time I had a friendship…

LIQUID PRISMS

Liquid prisms Caught the light Falling desperately Sounding like Shattering glass Shards of hope Splintering on Checkered floors Black and white Copyrights Stepping on Red carpets Unfolding Flawed Unraveling Lazily across Pressure points Where mean girls Wait to draw blood And where dreams Drown in the prisms Of so many tears

#BeReal – MAC DICKSON MCCANNELL

Please welcome Mac Dickson McCannell to #BeReal. Be real… Two simple words that mean so much. When I was asked to explain what “Be Real” means to me, I was at first confused and yet, excited. It has taken me weeks to figure out what angle I wanted to approach. I think why I was…

#BeReal – LINDSAY FISCHER

Please welcome Lindsay Fischer to #BeReal. On Reinvention, Releasing Reality and Whole-Hearted Living I’ve never felt more alive than the day I decided to take the screen off and be myself, releasing stuck pieces of reality from the filter used as my defense and watching the withheld, eager remnants descend in the very first pour.…

#BeReal – JEFF WELCH

My #BeReal guest today is Jeff Welch. One of the things I love about #BeReal is that I don’t censor anyone.  I love the unique voices.  Of course we are looking for the acceptance of positive and real behavior so I am selective about who I invite to write here.  That is to say I…

#BeReal – ALLISON HILL

My #BeReal guest today is Allison Hill. It has taken me the better part of forty two years to understand what it means to actually be real.  It’s not about what you actually show on the outside.  Don’t get me wrong, that’s a part of it.  What you show to the world is what they…

#BeReal – DIANA GORDON

My #BeReal guest today is Diana Gordon. I’ve been asked “are they real” more times than I can count—and not just about a sparkly piece of jewelry or pieces of vintage Fiestaware, but about the curls in my hair and the breasts that have always been large-for-my-size. The same question… As though somehow my accessories…

NOT A FANTASY

I don’t care what you think Actually, I really kind of do I could be crazy, could be sane My ideas might seem wrong Or maybe more clever than smart But I’m naked in front of you This is the real me, not a fantasy I don’t have a beautiful body And my face is…

BECOMING ROBOTS

Do you ever feel like you have a million things to say to a hundred different people but you don’t because you are afraid they won’t hear you? They won’t care? They won’t understand? We are becoming words on a screen.  Body language is being left out. I can say I need help but you…
