Flying Free

The birds fly from her hands at dusk. They were never meant to be hers forever; but they chose to be her friend for a life while as they recouped from their injuries. She was sad as she held the sack of feathers that they left behind, yet a certain feeling of excitement rose within […]

Begin

Begin with yourself. Look at yourself, how you are, what you dream of, what you want. Start there, and start small. Begin with what you love. Read your romance novels, your horror novels, your contemporary fiction, your classics. Listen to your classical music, your pop, hip hop, rock. Play your sports, run your races, climb […]

All I Know.

I don’t think people actually know what it is to live in this life. Some people wander the world, trying out different places like a woman who tries on different dresses and still feels like something isn’t quite right. Some people read all the books in the world, on to the next one as soon […]

When you meet a stranger…

When you meet a stranger, they sometimes feel aloof- How do you crack a shell of something that doesn’t want to break? When you meet a stranger, they sometimes open a smile so big you are swallowed in their warmth. They let you in like a family member long lost, now found. When you meet […]

Today is Ash Wednesday. I told my love about it yesterday and he said does that mean it’s Ashley Wednesday? I told him it meant it’s Ashley and Adam Wednesday. Ha ha. Joking aside, I always wanted to participate in Lent. I’m not Catholic, but the idea of giving something up for 40 days is […]

It is…or it is not.

Sometimes I sit in front of my iPad for various moments, wondering what I should write about next. I want my words to be careful and considerate. Something worth writing about. Something that others would read on their devices of choice and then stop and ponder how the world in a new way in which […]

Writing Beyond.

I want to disappear into writing. I want to find that love again, to get lost in the words until I look up and realize I’d been gone for hours. I miss coming up with ideas, of things to share. It used to be so effortless. And now I have to push myself to write, […]

A Blustery Halloween.

Halloween was a cold, blustery affair last night. The trees were nearly bent double and little snow flurries whipped by. Apparently some kids went out trick or treating but only three came to our house last night. It was fun though, dressing up in my monkey outfit while my fiancé dressed as a banana. It […]
