The Blue Dragon

2011-03-12-001

I write often. I used to write a bit of poetry and fiction however over the years the motivation left me. I’m not sure why; it wasn’t due to a lack of imagination. There is nothing stopping my stories, ideas and unusual thoughts from spilling across a page except for my own hesitation to actually…


A Love Worth Remembering

n-009

On my walk to work the other morning I stopped in the corner market along the way, Durn Good Grocery. There’s a gentleman who works there in the mornings who usually has a smile and friendly conversation waiting. I’m not normally one for chit-chat but he’s always been kind when I stop in for my…


Unspoken

2011-03-02-002

I dislike lies but understand the need to keep secrets. How many secrets have I kept for others over the years? How many have I carried around with me? The truth of the matter is that there are days when I feel as if my entire personality is just that: a secret. People rarely take…


A Slow Waking

mi-002

At home freshly showered with my lower half buried under blankets on the bed even though it’s still warm and blue skies outside. It’s one of those less common evenings when there isn’t much on the to-do list and so I’m lazily lounging around trying to decide between a little light gaming or a good…


Prom

m-004

It’s Friday afternoon. This time last week I was rushing home to get ready for a night out. The annual goth prom at my old watering hole came around again and I wanted to attend. I rarely go to clubs anymore; perhaps once or twice a year. Drinking buddies stopped texting and messaging once I…


Beautiful

n-007

I’m up early again. There is no reason to wake at 5:30am but I can never get back to sleep and so it ends up being the start time for the day sometimes. It’s still a little early for the make-up routine. I wonder why I bother with it to be honest. I suppose most…


Image Coming Soon…

Sitting here wondering what to… do. Normally our weeks are carefully scheduled routines with little variance for fun activities outside the home because we always need to save our money. However, for five whole minutes anyway, money is not a major concern. So now what? The day so far has been reserved for housecleaning and…


A splash of color

n-008

I’ve been in a good mood all week and today was great. The daily routine went on with hardly any bumps. Work sailed by and I caught more than the usual amount of breaks. I saw people I knew all throughout the week; some old co-workers, others old friends. A friend stopped in work today…


My Kingdom for a Clean, Quiet Refuge

m-007

Boyfriend accidentally woke me up at 6:30am this morning. On a Saturday. He didn’t really do anything wrong and if it wasn’t him it would have been a kid or a pet. Someone always manages to cause just enough waves on Saturday morning to wake the insomniac, who sleeps light in the early morning hours…


Laughing Through the Pain

m-001

Last week we went to see Marc Maron do a stand-up show at the Moore theater. It was a lot of fun. He’s a great comedian to go see as he still really seems to love doing what he does. For two hours he ranted like a hilarious lunatic, told his tales and then showed…
