Today I hugged myself. Because I needed to. As the sun rose, I sat on the edge of my bed in meditation, fully exposed - no makeup, no lashes, no clothes, and I crisscrossed my arms across my body until my fingertips touched the opposite shoulder blade. And I hugged myself. Tightly. Until it was… Continue reading Today I Hugged Myself
Hey Gurl. What you doing? Isn't that the universal greeting amongst girlfriends? "Hey gurl, what ya doing?" LOL!

But over the past several weeks my soul has craved a release through writing and so I'm not really writing… Continue reading Untitled (Yes, that’s the title)

I was flattered that she'd asked and although I've come a long way,… Continue reading Move…..Get out the way
