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…


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…


Beautiful

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…


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

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…


I don’t really have a choice, right?

m-003

I was watching one of those comedic dramas the other day about an alcoholic man who’s life had finally hit bottom. At one point in the film he looks up an old crush and visits her at home. She’s a single working mom and has a tale or two about how things had been over…


Shifting

n-003

Time is slipping by so fast. Wasn’t it just spring time? Wasn’t I just walking the streets near my home admiring all of the new blooms, gorgeous petals and wonderful aromas of nature waking up for the year? Now the trees are nearly bare and the ground is covered with beautiful, decaying leaves that crunch under my…


The Art of Conversation

m-002

I spend a lot of my time during the day silently thinking about… well, everything. Especially when I am at work. For as busy as the little bakery/slash/café gets, I have gone almost entire days weaving around co-workers and customers without speaking to anyone. It’s not intentional. It’s just what happens when you are a quiet…
