Tomorrow is a beautiful day. And tomorrow is about joy and wonder and life and love. So tonight we'll talk about something to the left of all those things. Not quite in opposition of, but nearly adjacent. A window's view. My daughter was born on a Thursday....

Recovery feels like a rollercoaster. You are dipped and turned at will; the wind piercing your cheeks and burning your eyes. The air comes too fast and it's almost impossible to breathe. You are blind to what is in front of you and at mercy to the ride. I h...

The 3rd Floor
My windows looked out onto a small parking lot. The building across from me was nondescript; maybe an apartment building. At night, I would see a patchwork of windows lit up and wonder if anyone was inside, peering back at me. I could close my blinds whenev...

Choice
Let me tell you a little story about choice. I got married at the age of 32. This was a conscious decision. Not to search out a rightful partner and marry them, but to make a commitment at an age where I was ready to respect everything it encompassed. We've...

I haven't been able to write lately. Or at the very least, write the way I like to when I want to and how I have to in order for the right things to get out onto paper. I have a process. My process. And it is the only process that works for me. I can't sit ...

Balance
