Go forth

Go forth, with dignity and optimism with love and kindness with hope. Go forth, knowing that you are strong but can, and will, become stronger, wiser, happier, better. Go forth with star in your eyes, dreams in your head and ambition in your hands. Remember, as much as New Years are known for their “new…

To Whom it May Concern, Amoung all the things that bother me about this ending, I have to admit that I am most bothered by your willingness to let it end. In most books that I’ve read, every ending comes after a great fight, or catharsis, that knots together loose strings. But this one came after a…

Nap

I can’t sleep or I’ll get drunk,  On the lucid liquid I sip in my dreams.  If I fall too deep I won’t wake up Because I’ll dream of you, alive and well,  My hair is long and my hands are full With dandelions from the garden we planted.  If I sleep I’ll remember everything…
