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. No, I'm talking about that sweet window...just an hour or two when the ibuprofen stacked… Continue reading The New High in my life
