  • Life Dreams

    As I sat with my family this 4th of July I suddenly realized my dream. I’ve been focusing on it a lot lately, trying to be better. I didn’t think it was my dream though. It is my life. You are probably asking yourself, “What is she ta...

  • Plummet

    Like so many times before, I slowly rose from the warmth of my bed. My feet slid out from under the covers, and onto the carpet. The constant hum of the air conditioner filled the room, accompanied by the soft pad of my feet as I shuffled toward the be...

  • Face Down on the Diving Board

    Face down on the diving board, I stared into the chlorinated depths without really seeing. Though I knew it spoiled the melancholy repose I had to shift so my belt buckle wasn’t pinching me. Three piece suits are not made for lounging. To be fair...
