Facing Demons

Tomorrow I get on a long flight back to my home state to visit a couple members of my family for a few days. If you had asked me even just a year ago if I would ever do this, I would have said you were insane. I guess time brings change, and now we … More Facing Demons

A Fragmented Post

I started this post two days before Christmas – in the middle of writing, a part of my life changed and I had to go –  I am just getting back to it now. Rather than start all over, I think it’s important to share these changing moments in life. They are real, they are … More A Fragmented Post
