Sewn (reblog)

I dabble in photography and this blog i share (see link below) always satisfies when read, with varying ways photos impact. Click link to see work displayed. This particular post is especially drawn to me as a quilter, lover of fabric and the process of piecing together lives. “For over a decade, Sewn has taken shape from…

Teeth. Dig In.

Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing. Dali Plans change. We say one thing and do another. Does that make us hypocrites? Liars? We strive and fail. Damned fools? Or simply tired? Today, there are no planned adventures until after 2pm (US Eastern Time), where upon we will venture out to St.…

Swim Against the Waves

For my lovely daughter. Always. And Forever. Wow! Yesterday was quite eventful. Not in a good way either. There is a back story to this story that unfolded shortly after breakfast. I was busy writing Christmas greetings to family and friends, realizing how few cards we had received this year. The amount of personal greetings…

Wretched days and shameful nights forgiveness alludes the family whose wounds speak to a weary clouded sky. Child accused for all the wrong with dad and mom and home not acknowledging the aching lips she keeps shut tight. Oh save us, the child cries scared to move at night the beasts in the window screaming…

Mirrored Reflection

I have been listening to conversations. What would others think of the words you speak? Imagine the reflection you mirror. Two  friends spoke, or rather gossiped together over coffee, “She only works part-time now that she quit her other job.” The other replied, “Really?! Why would she do that? She had such a great job.” “For her kids.”…
