You had the beginning of something in your hands

‘You haven’t slept in days, the ‘what ifs’ keeping you up. What if somebody listened; what if somebody helped. What if blood were an amorphous shape you could hold.’

Another woman like me – a new poem hits the web

Awkward admission number one: I might not have recognized Aziz Ansari’s face one week ago.

Awkward admission number two: I can’t forget it now.

If you’ve been living anywhere but under a rock, you have seen the news coming out about Aziz Ansari’s night of less-than-romance.

There are so many ways to respond. THIS POEM is just one.

Thank you to Val Tuck at Tuck Magazine for adding a #metoo reflection to their collection of incredible poetry, fiction, politics, and news.

I Found Hope

Hope and faith are always viable options.

Through challenging times, through tiring days, through painful experiences and stories of tragedy, we must never lose sight of the beauty that surrounds us.

When reading a book, not even thinking about this blog, hope found me. I was curled up under a yellow blanket, hot tea by my side. And I followed hope to her next simple message: “Believe in man.” Believe in mankind to do good. Believe in mankind to be good. Believe that the world and even the current page of your novel is filled with kindness and inspiration. And believe that you have every right to move past the noise – even cross it out in black ink! – and delve straight into that place of inspiring hope.

Because, at its core, the world is … beautiful, and simple, and, quite frankly, good.

How do I know that?

Well, for starters, because you are a part of this world!
