    I didn’t do it. I swear. I wasn’t even there. Ask her. Ask anyone. Except I did do it, didn’t I? Somehow, some way. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. That girl isn’t me. That girl who acted so selfishly, […]

    I walk into the room and look around to see if anyone I know is there. Unexpectedly, I don’t know anyone there. I wander over to one corner of the room and sit down, lost in my own thoughts. A few minutes later, someone walks over and stands next to me. I look up to […]

    Back to the beginning.

    You remember this. The first steps, the building blocks. Take it one move at a time. You remember how difficult this once seemed—once was? It’s easy now, isn’t it? You’ve moved on, learned more, gotten better.

    And now—now it’s second nature. You’re ready.

    Dangling. Swinging.
    The chink of metal hitting metal.

    She sat there singing to herself. “Just imagine…” Where did that song come from, anyway? YouTube, probably. That’s where it all comes from, isn’t it? But it’s a good song. She liked the message, and continued humming. “If you imagine, we can come together and create a new beginning and and end…” Was that true? […]

    I signed online. It was just a normal day. I didn’t have any expectations of the out of the ordinary. Not that day. I signed on Facebook, predictably. Found that I was tagged in a note. Written about someone’s mother. Who had passed away several years back. Somehow, that was touching. I didn’t know I […]

    I sat by the river that day. I wasn’t sure how to feel. Numb, I guess. Cold. I’d never had anyone die before. Not when I was younger, no one close to me. I was scared. Felt alone. A grown woman, feeling alone. But no. I wasn’t alone. I never was. It just felt that […]

    I had a dream once. You’ve probably had it, too. I don’t even remember all the details of the dream, and I’m not sure it really matters. D’you know what the dream was? My teeth fell out. Which, really, is kind of horrifying to be dreaming. And it’s weird, because my dentist just said I […]

    I didn’t do it, you know? I mean, maybe I wanted to. Maybe I was tempted to. Maybe it was something that appealed to me. But that doesn’t mean I did it. You can’t pin this on me. You can’t assume I did it, just because I wanted to. Don’t pretend you know me, or […]
