Dear Cassie

I’m sorry that this elections turned out the way it did, for you, for me, for our friends and family, for our country. I’m sorry we have to watch our nephews grow up with a president that stands for so much of what we stand against. I’m sorry you feel scared and angry and so [&hellip

Rambling

I grew up in a family that wasn’t particularly expressive.  There weren’t that many hugs or deep discussions about our feelings, nor were there moments where we sat and talked about our dreams for the future.  It wasn’t a space where we were encouraged to be creative or whimsical.  My memories of growing up are [&hellip

There is one particular moment that [&hellip

One of Those

I’m having one of those days. One of those days where you just feel like saying “fuck it” to everything because you’re tired of feeling like the only one making an effort. One of those days where you realize you’re feeling sorry for yourself, but you don’t care because so does everyone else and why [&hellip
