a letter to myself.

I found this post, one I wrote 4 years ago. So I thought I would write a response, to the version of me then. Who didn’t really know just how many mountains she would jump off, or rivers she would sink deep into. Who hadn’t really truly seen what it meant to live a life […]

i want to start again

I wrote this in April, but couldn’t…wouldn’t publish it…maybe it was to raw or to vulnerable at the time but now I want to. So here is a piece of my processing from April. When winter had just ended and I was tired. When I felt like a lot had gone wrong and I couldn’t […]

tan lines and dirty soles

it’s summer, the sandal tan lines on my feet prove it, as do the polaroids taken in hammocks and balconies, in lakes and at late night tire swing conversations. and the time of farewells for this blonde beauty as she travels back to the place called paradise and the place that sent her here in […]

4 days

4 days away. almost no planning. walking and talking. escaping. pizza, coffee, gelato, crazy waiters and a friend who patiently waits as you set up camera angles on napkins and menus, just so you get that one good photo of the two of you. thanks for the memories. r/

more to say

Just stand up and take a breath and let the words come out your mouth.  You have more to say that you are letting on,  you have more to say that your heart racing and fingers sweating would have you believe.    There is always been more to say, conversations that I finish in my […]

you said breath and life stood up

You have never ever given up You have never turned your back on us You said light, and light there was You created all that was, You said breath and life stood up, You are God and great above it all.   You are more than we’ll ever know You give life and life to […]

soft snow flakes

  it snowed on christmas day. winter is here. the wood store is going low. the layers are adding up…5 long-sleeves today and counting.  i am simultaneously loving the cosy evenings and dreaming of the sun-soaked spring days that are coming. r/  

in the rear view mirror

You look different from this angle, through the rear view mirror as the ’06 turns to ’07 and the memories are all that I have to see. 2016, you look different; different lines are showing now, different moments and revelations are showing their faces as I look back through the glass. You weren’t easy to […]

i hear the drums echoing tonight…

“it’s going to take a lot to drag me away from you” You have taught me more than I can express; you brought us all together under fairy lights with good coffee, food and the perfect dance party. Maybe the best reason to get on a plane, to celebrate the two of you. R/

Let’s jump into lakes

Has anyone ever asked you to jump into a lake when you don’t think it’s safe, or told you to close your eyes before they feed you some unknown thing, or asked you to ‘trust me, I know its going to be fine’? Has anyone every just taken you so far out of your comfort […]
