From Words Of A Wildflower:

So, if you're like me, and you're heart has been hurt by someone you used to know, by a heart you used to love, I hope you're brave enough to allow your heart to be light instead of bitter. I hope that instead of thinking about how your heart was broken, I hope you remember all the reasons you cared and loved for so long. The way your name sounded in their voice, the way they made you brave, the late nights, the random acts of friendship, the adventures. Please know there is a reason you loved the hearts you loved, and it's okay to still care. You are not weak, you are not stupid, you are human, and sometimes we can't help the hands our hearts fall into.

Do Crew: AIDS Care Services

When Larry advised he'd set up a Pride Do Crew event I was eager to volunteer.

Of course Larry waited until I'd signed up before telling me that we'd be responsible for cleaning out a koi pond. A koi pond. It sounded gross to me and every time he mentioned it my skin just crawled.

As you can see, it was gross.

My alternate job was pulling weeds. Now, the group did have to point out what were weeds and what were fine to leave. Here I am, hard at work.

At the end of the day, Holly Haven residents had a cleaned pond, some new flowers and a vegetable garden.

A Book Review, "Dark Matter"

The book blew my mind! But in a good way!

I mean, we all have those moments when we think about the "what ifs" in life. What if I'd stayed with my ex? What if I'd accepted the other job? What if I'd never gone to college, gotten married, had kids, etc.

This book allows you  the opportunity to step into some of those "what if" scenarios via Jason Dessen.

Now add the terror of being well aware of your "normal" life, the one you are happy with, the one you are desperate to return.
