I think I just moved back to TN

It’s amazing how quickly your whole life can change, isn’t it? One minute you have a perfect idea of how everything is going to play out... the next, something as gentle as a breeze comes along and changes the direction of everything.

Overnight road trip: Tx to Tn (pics & vid)

For me, I’m realizing that I feel most alive while traveling—when I’m out on the open road with the world at my feet and time in my pocket. There seems to be nothing more thrilling to me than a journey. I love having a destination in my mind, but what I love even more is… Continue reading Overnight road trip: Tx to Tn (pics & vid)

Poem: Shy Girl

Shy girl Oh shy girl When you stare into The shattered mirror I don’t believe You see what I see The way you grin At the ground The way you laugh Without a sound The heart you seek Is upon your sleeve I see the way You weep as it bleeds You think you may… Continue reading Poem: Shy Girl

A Letter to Myself

Dear You, No one in my life has ever caused me more problems than you. They say nobody changes. With you, I’ve found that’s true, but it’s not.

Poem: The End

Hello. I am back. Back from the dead, you could say... No not really. I'm just being dramatic. Like usual. So, for the last week and a half, I've kinda been away. But not really...
