Another scar….

I've written before that someday I'd like to get a tattoo that reads "Scars are like birthmarks but with better stories". Scars are funny.  Some are on the outside, some are on the inside.  Some scars heal and lighten on their own, and some scars are dark, rippled, puckered and pronounced forever.  We often don't… Continue reading Another scar….

The New High in my life

My new high is when I'm in that sweet spot.  When it feels so good and I chase it again and again. I'm not talking about alcohol or any kind of illegal high, but I crave it just the same.

October

Has it really almost been a month since I published a blog post? I'm sorry, y'all. October has me in its snare again. Every year I get weird. I get sad, depressed, angry and pull inward.

September 11th

Twelve years ago my body changed.  Twelve years ago today I was in surgery for eleven hours as I underwent a double mastectomy and reconstruction in the same day. I often joke that on September 11th, 2006 my twin towers fell.  That joke doesn't feel right today.  Seventeen years ago today something horrible happened in… Continue reading September 11th
