Cadence (chapter 12, yellowstone).

“Don’t fall in love with the first cowboy you meet,” warned her Uncle, poking fun as he hugged her goodbye in the Billings Airport in Montana. She hugged him back with a hearty laugh, wrestling with her reading material – Montana, Wyoming, and Bridal magazines that her cousin had picked out for her moments before. She…

Cadence (chapter 10, home).

“From this hour I ordain myself loos’d of limits and imaginary lines, Going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me. I inhale great draughts of space, The…

Running Up That Hill

It isn’t your fault ya know. Where you are now, in the midst of it all. You didn’t ask for it, but it’s here. And if I could tell you what lay beyond the hill and have you believe me, you’d run faster. But it’s not your fault that your ears can’t hear in this…

Curse(her).

Automatic Writing. 10•17 The static’s clinging to those little corners of my mind again. It could be from the hefty, energetic upswing in expression and the Rollercoaster I got on, riding his waves ’til the very end; yet, there is no end in sight as I wait for the zero hour to spring forth and…

Arrival.

“All of you have been coming through what you would see to be challenges, the narrow part of the hourglass, the bit of squeezing. It is a place of gifting, but it does not always feel as a gifting. It is a place where there will be clarity about priorities, about what is important in…

Dismantle.

“Why are you distant, it’s a good day after all?” he was genuinely concerned now. “I don’t know. He chose. He chose these superficial handcuffs instead of my hand … cuffs that bind the mind when the brain bugs overwhelm him. He chose them over me … again. One of these days it’s going to arrest…

As the Table Turns.

I assure you dear, I don’t need you. When and if I do, I will surely let you know, but do not hold your breath. To say I need you is like taking us back to a place where we initially jumped off the cliff and took that leap of faith into yet another brutal lesson, which was…

Conversations with Monkey Sauce.

Shout out to the Original Monkey Sauce and Raptor Rex! A very, Merry Unbirthday to us as we celebrate a new decade of randomally selected, nonsensical conversation! JOIN US @ RANDOM (don’t worry, it’s just a link to an organized list of hilariously understated nonsense) …

Tasteless Hypomanic Sugar Cubes.

Mean lady at the coffee shop, what’s up??? You are the first human most of us see in the morning as we shake our pillows free from the dream and crawl out of our caves in search of some semblance of life. We all have to adult sometimes. Suck it up, Shirley. _______

Unconditionally.

I got my knickers in a twist and put on my passive aggressive panties, when really – it was all out of fear, my love. Now I sit in silence, doubling-up on meds just to ward off the tears that haven’t flowed since I saw you last. And I fear I may never see you…

Not My Job.

It is not in my job description as a loving, kind, and compassionate human being to halt my progress so I can muster up what little empathy I have left for someone who berates me day in and day out. It is their job, however, to wake the fuck up, be a man, and walk…
