• One time as a child, I fell off of a scooter. For some reason, I was immediately eager to get back on it. I suppose that’s a trait I should have maintained through my young-adult years.

    Overt, is covert. There it is, ladies and gentlemen.

  • Lydia Kate commented on the post, security 5 years, 6 months ago

    Security is something viewed as good and necessary for human survival. I see it as a cage, a false sense of happiness. Security CAN bring happiness, but not that much of it. Sometimes it envelops people and they forget how to live with uncertainty and unknowing, which is exciting. I am not currently living my life in hopes of gaining ultimate…[Read more]

  • Lydia Kate commented on the post, values 5 years, 7 months ago

    Everyone has different values, and that’s okay. I just wish people could accept the differences and move on with their lives. No two people are the same, not even the best of friends, and they need to realize that they never will be the same. We all place value and importance on different things, and we all have diverse minds. Too many…[Read more]

  • We named my baby brother after my grandfather. He was the only grandfather I ever knew, and the best there could have been.

    He clasped my hand as he tried to find the right words. For once, I had no idea what was going on in his brain. Was this not worth it to him? Were his dreams bigger and better than me? Did he want me beside him as he tried to achieve them? His fingers clenched mine tighter, and I became more afraid. But then, in an unexpected twist of fate, he…[Read more]

  • Lydia Kate commented on the post, unplanned 5 years, 8 months ago

    The whole ordeal was unplanned. I didn’t expect it, neither did he, but there we were, driving to Nashville, our first trip alone, together. No one knew we were gone. We didn’t care. Unplanned was how we wanted it. We grabbed our stuff and followed the white lines all the way to our freedom.
