She was in good spirits now that she’d learn to forgive.
How had that happened anyway?
It couldn’t have been just the yoga…

She was a host for his virus.
He injected her with depression & darkness and madness.

Call the fucking paramedics.
I’m having a heart attack.
Because we actually agree on something.
Pigs DO fly backwards in May.

When no one’s around
I’m tempted
to break the rules
I’ve agreed to.
I have in the past
And I’m evolving
to honor my commitments
And trust myself again.

his caramel skin remained supple even as he shed his harness and bolted over the fence
bucking in the dappled sunlight
winnying cries of freedom

Her old goals weren’t cutting it any more, her values were shifting and her dreams were muddy and tarnished by reality…

she suffered from “hope springs eternal” syndrome
until she didn’t
until she finally realized that hope is not a strategy

how to weave together so many disparate personalities into one cohesive fabric of humanity?

the peach colored pear ornaments glistened with fake snowflakes attached
they represented unattainable expensive things
and she craved them with the same passion hugh jackman had for singing and dancing

She tried to sneak in, but the ringtone gave her away
Why hadn’t she remembered to turn off her cellphone?!
Now it was all for naught…

she’d never expected to be in banking
she’d thought it would be like the Mary Popppins movies
crusty old men in grey suits
turns out, it was more than a cliche

she had more than the occasional doubt that she’d made the right choice
but she’d only seen the one option at the time
so what else could she have done?

eyes colored like espresso
cinnamon skin
he’d never seen anyone so beautiful

they were builders of brains
surgically removing the extraneous tissue and residual

how had the fun-loving, fun-living girl reached this?
this state of curl-up-in-a-ball while wailing into her wine depression…

I’ve spent most of my life being broke.
As a child, I never felt poor.
As a young adult, I traveled around the world on a dime – seeing the glorious colors of each continent.
Then I grew up and became a 1%er on paper. But charged it all.
I lost my job and the weight of those decisions weighed on me and my family like a glacier.
I earned what I could – which was about the same as I earned in college.
And the hill of debts grew into mountain range of strewn paper.
Robbing Peter to pay Paul.
Now I’m earning a decent salary again.
Each payday, I wake up and pay my bills – trying to tunnel through the mountain with a teaspoon.
30 minutes and most of the wages are gone – towards the interest.
Reminding myself to have the patience of Andy DuFresne.
And to NEVER charge anything to a credit card.
You’ll spend your life paying for things you don’t remember.

her cup overflowed with the bitter dregs of disappointment
she didn’t get the role..the recognition she craved
she’d have to flex her acting muscles
and face the jeering crowd

The red and white Japanese lantern served as the nightlight for her dreams.
As she swam to sleep, she’d see the faint light illuminate her imagination…

the iridescent skyscraper filled skyline shimmed in the evening like fireflys electifying the dusk on a hot summer night

he heard the doorbell and panicked
was she here already?!
he hadn’t finished shaving…
or cleaning

the bell..
such a shockingly violent way to start the day
clangle, jangle, buzz
get yo’ ass up outta that bed
and get to work

it doesn’t feel live i’ve won the morning…

Yoga illuminated her thought.
It was a respite from all the “go go go” constant “gotta check off my to do list” busy-ness of life.
She could be in stillness & reconnect with her thoughts and feelings.
THIS is who I am – she thought….

She offered him the best of herself…and he rebuffed her.
He didn’t explain why – kept it light, kept if “friend” ly
She died a thousand deaths

He gestured wildly to her, yet didn’t say a word. His lips were pursed – partly surprised – and partly disgusted by what he saw: A severed hand emerging from leaf-covered mounds of dirt. Traces of blood splattered across the digits.

It was her first day as a police officer, and she froze. The training manual was much more clinical than the emotions that roiled her senses.

she sang with a purity that could only be described as angelic.
crystalline notes soar into the heavens,
causing God to raise her lips in a smile of appreciation

What a shit show.

The marionette nominee was being paraded to distract the American people from the other issues that were stripping rights away from American Citizens as deliberately has a stripper performs a lapdance. Slow, intentional and with a deliberate focus.

Her life was a circus

Red nosed clowns at work; top-hatted yoga teacher guiding her in the mornings on her mat

She felt like she was scrambling from one trapeze to the other (corporate warrior…peaceful warrior)- with no net

Aha…the plot thickens!
he cried when he found the bright yellow paintbrush leaving smudges against a charcoal grey wall

how to market this strange and profoundly brilliant new idea?…
