This is the last official post of my recent blogging challenge. All day I haven't had a clue what to write about. All day I've been wrestling with issues that I'm just not comfortable blogging about. But right now, with very sore eyes from a day of sobbing (thanks, ovulation hormones), I am reminded of … Continue reading Love Unfolds Naturally
Back in high school I was a serious fan of the Christian punk rock band Relient K. Me and my friends at youth group were always singing their songs and singing their praises. I even convinced my very gullible friend that I had actually dated Matt Thiessen, the lead singer and song-writer. I was joking … Continue reading Mood’s Out Swinging
I don't want to go to bed 'cause my mind will keep me awake as my heart continues to break.
Why is it so hard to be vulnerable with others? Oh, I don't know, because vulnerability is vulnerability?! Because people can hurt you when you let your guard down? Because when you've spoken up, people don't listen? Or instead, they judge you up and down and now you have to bear the weight of their … Continue reading Vulnerable
I've been dealing with anxiety on and off this past week. When the undercurrent is there, it doesn't take much to set me off and turn me into spastic basket case.

Pain is the place where everything is fragmented. Oh, how I wish to be the glue! I'm not sure how to fix myself, I'll just try to fix you.
This post continues the themes of Strike the Root and We're more alike than different. Last night I came across more commentary about the youth taking a stand to demand gun reform. And I felt so conflicted. I find myself really wanting to support their efforts because how can you deny them? How can you get in the … Continue reading Projections of the Past
This post continues the themes I wrote about several days ago in my post Strike the Root (click link to read). My dear friend Jeremy recently stated that, "We're more alike than different." This is an idea I've mulled over for awhile, and it's becoming more true to me as I explore what motivates all the different … Continue reading We’re more alike than different
It reached almost 60 degrees here in central Maine today, and it felt like heaven. The warm air and melting snow was a huge spring tease. Spring isn't quite here yet, despite what it felt like today. It will get cold again and we'll probably have more snow. But today was a welcome break from … Continue reading Spring Tease
