To be brave

So, I didn’t want to be brave on Tuesday. Even though we were only 1 school night down, by Tuesday – I’d had enough of the week. Recently, I’d dared myself not only to name, but to believe my deepest dreams. I’d been challenging myself to stand up strong and ride my life with abandon …

First loss, final loss.

So, I signed up for babies when I was 27. It was like an internal call to cradle another. One coming from deep down inside my belly. It took me 2 years to convince my lover to sign up alongside me. Another 3 for the universe to hear our united call. But once we got …

And both my parents hated The Smiths. But despite their hatred, my ancestors gave power to the tween voice within me. They helped me purchase …

So, she told me swimming in the river was just like having sex. We had just finished practicing yoga together on the sand in the dark and under the clouds. Accompanied by only the fading moon and the dawn song of gulls. We finished with a moment of silence. Settling ourselves into the morning and …

Autumn Equinox

So, sometimes it dawns on you that your not in Kansas anymore. The dawning can creep up on you slowly. A gnawing feeling inside that you’re kinda different from the people you’re surrounded by. Or that you’re getting in the way as your crew are trying to get things done. Maybe your style has shifted. …

To be real

So, last week Kim Kardashian photoed and posted her rock-taped tits on instagram. She shared this as a way of telling her fans (and innocent bystanders like me) how much work she has to do to prepare her voluptuousness to be – well – voluptuous on the red carpet. I came about this life changing …
