Listening

In the past few months, I have listened to more about myself than I remember having heard in my entire life. It all started when I admitted to a friend that one of my New Year's Resolutions was to work on my pride and, instead of rushing to the aid of my ego, she said... Continue Reading →

The Letter A

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ Once, before, everybody enjoyed using the letter A. She would pop up in stories for the very youngest to the very oldest. She could run freely through speeches, sing songs or shout in protest. Until the night she was kicked out of the letters. Ever since, she could be found sulking in musty corners,...

The last time I was in a relationship, I was old enough to be thinking about marriage and young enough to know it would never work. Despite... Continue Reading →
