Blink, and you’ll miss it.

Friends, marriage, family, fun,

Joy, but others too.

Plus failure and misery,

But blink and you’ll miss it.

My world. My universe. My everything.

Ultimate Fear

What scares me? Ha…

If we’re talking normal, everyday things, then social situations, eyedrops, etc. If we’re digging deeper, then my future. But if we’re saying my ultimate fear…

It’s forgetting.

Forgetting myself. My memories. My life. My everything.

And forgetting my stories. My characters.

The personalities, histories, dramas, worlds, and people I created.

I fear.

And that is why I write.

Ocean Girl

The ocean breeze made her hair dance, and the sun was only a spotlight for her beautiful graceful but careful movements as she climbed the stack of rocks. Her soft lips mouthed a song that only her melodic voice could sing for if anyone else but her sang it, the song would be changed completely.

She went on barefoot, exploring the world with small steps but with eyes as wide as the sky. She collected seashells and held them like glass when she washed it several times in the seawater. She planted her feet into the wet sand, enjoying its cool touch against the heat of the morning sun.

And every afternoon like every other afternoon for years, she placed the seashells in the shape of a heart, wrote his name, and watched as the ocean took her heart and him like every other afternoon with one single tear.

Happy New Year!

Wow, I haven’t posted in a while (no surprise there), but I just had to say, “Happy New Year!” 🎆🎉🎉🎉🎊🎉🎉🎉🎆

As for resolutions… well, I’ve never been good at keeping those except maybe last year’s to be healthier. I do hope that I post more. Maybe keep a daily journal and be a little more creative now that I’m being swallowed up by logic, words, education, and the usual I’m-not-actually-an-adult-but-I’m-not-under-18-anymore life.

I hope everyone has a great new year! Good luck with keeping your resolutions! 😄
