Dear Past…Go

I don’t much obsess over you anymore. Thank the Lord, or whomever. I guess I’ve just got brighter things in my life now. I have a plan now. Well, not a plan. That’s laughable, I suppose. But I have dreams and goals. And where are you? Stuck back in 2002? Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com... Continue Reading →

Dear Stray Dog…Follow Me

You’re free to follow me home. I won’t scream, kick, or chase you away. In fact, I’ll feed you and love you forever. But you must know, stray dog, if you follow me home, I’m a stray too. Following me will bring you to an island of lost wanderers. We are misfits thrown from the... Continue Reading →

Dear Rescue Pet…Thank You

Years ago I walked into the shelter expecting to find a furry companion. That room full of animals was overwhelming and heartbreaking. I found myself wanting to grab every furry soul in the room.

It’s one of those nights when you’ve left me to my thoughts without an intelligent filter. I’m weak, tired, and restless. Sleep won’t come to me and all I can do is wonder... I want to run outside and scream and rip the bark off of the trees. I will hide my face from the... Continue Reading →

All your life you were lied to. You were ripped from your mother and later told to forget her. You were... Continue Reading →

Dear Sun…Stay

When you are gone for days at a time my spirits fall. I find no motivation for life itself other than eating and sleeping. It’s in these long stretches of sunless sky that I remember how much I love to see and feel your power. You give me life, Sun. You remind me of what... Continue Reading →

Dear Jane (Eyre)…Thank You

Dear Hero…You’re a Villain

There's absolutely no one in the world with as much power over me as you. I'm not an easily influenced person, so what makes you so special? Why does my heart yearn for your acceptance and crave your undying attention? Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Hero, it's maddening. Psychological exploration can't explain the obsession anymore....

Dear Summer…Stay

Why do you leave me every year? We are forever connected and even in winter I feel your spirit warming my soul. So stay with me. Just one year - don’t leave.
