Dear Younger Me: Passion

Dear younger me, Passion is infinitely important, my child. And you are so passionate. I can still see you. There is not an animal you don't think is cute, an essay you don't love to write, or a flower you can't find joy in. For all the battles you've fought, you have an extravagant passion...

Fighting Goodbye

The three stood in a silent circle, gazing down at the sleepy little dog, lingering in the kitchen like night mist before the idyllic rise of the morning blaze.

Dear younger me, Oh my sweet summer child. So many things to tell you. So much you don't know. Yes, you are mature for your age, but you have so much more maturing to do. Your wisdom will be hardwon. Terribly hardwon. There will be pain. I can see it, written all over your heart,... Continue Reading →

The Company of Rain

She appreciated the company of the rain, the only company she currently had. It was cold and unrelenting, but it was present. The sound of the drops ruptured in waves, at times deafening, at others melodic, drumming against the roofs, streaming off the awnings to crash into the shifting cement below. It seemed to breathe...

Quick Note

Hi y'all! We're done with high school! So, I have a quick moment of shameless self-promotion. I'm going to keep my blog going as part of my, hopefully, future writing career. Heaven knows I need the discipline and the experience. I would really appreciate it if all y'all would keep following it and read it... Continue Reading →
