    Her last words are still echoing in my ears, as if they danced off her tongue only seconds ago. “Take care of yourself, honey. I love you.” Her voice like the most beautiful cursive Tracing words through the air, Every word painted in silver script. Now she speaks from heaven. Her wor...

    She experienced life as a dance. Sometimes, a slow, gentle waltz. Delicate and serene. Defined by the simple beauty of nuanced performance. At other times, a salsa: fast, fiery, and complex. Motions masterfully intertwined. She danced with her misfortunes; with her victories. She dance...

    I remember my last day with my Mom as being one of the most amazing days of my life. I didn’t know it was going to be the last day. No one ever knows. I shared the last afternoon with my sister and our close family friends, reliving memories, sharing wisdom, and finding solace in knowing th...

    She danced the rainbow bridge to eternity under the light of the sun and over gentle clouds into the caressing arms of forever. Her journey will go on, unbounded, unrestrained by the limitations of tangible form. Her dance with cancer has reached its end and though her beautiful soul will ...

    One day you told me you were done fighting. The next, you told me goodbye. And the day after, you left us. Tonight, you’re my beautiful angel Dancing away forever among the planets. In the morning, you will wake me by painting along the horizon and kissing me with sunshine. When I co...

    Rose colored shards of glass hidden away in a drawer lend me pain, so maybe one day I can forget everything. Rose colored shards of glass let me bleed to help this pass drain away sadness and sorrow until I can't feel the pain any longer. Rose colored shards of glass you hold my happine...

    Imagine yourself on your deathbed right now and ask yourself this: have I experienced life, do I have any regrets? Just because you are young and you think you have a whole life ahead of you doesn't mean you cannot have really lived. When a child dies, they always say that they should have had ...

    August began with the tears of goodbye, hidden in the boiler room of my basement. The dripping sound from the water heater and the cold darkness helped dampen the grief of my Mom moving away. Moving away for who-knows-how-long to the Dominican Republic. I knew she would get taken care of there and s...

    Failure. The ever-present threat. a flesh-eating, soul-crushing, bone-breaking, heart-stopping, mind-altering death trap that seems to kill me, from the inside. Telling me to cease being who I am. Telling me that I am the lesser being. Power tumbling. Success slipping. ...

    The mountains are caressed by the suns warm rays. Blue jays twitter in the orange-washed trees. Brisk air slips into every crevasse and shadows shrink back into dimly lit holes. The air warms slowly in a bath of light. Flowers relax their petals revealing their beauty. Along the su...

    She whips down the narrow mountainside trail, pumping the hand brake, twisting around corners with precision and grace. At the base, she dismounts from the mud-specked mountain bike, her toned muscles rippling, sweat streaming over her popped-out veins, and an exhilarated smile on her face. M...

    I look back, along the hallways that I shall never again walk. I look back, upon the faces that I never again shall see. I look back, I see a second home, a place of nurturing, a place of growth. I look back, through teary eyes, on the place I call home. I look back, and reali...

    Happiness has a code that I cannot break, a trick I cannot find, not even for my own sake. Escape to a new world, escape to love and joy, a place with real happiness and not just a ploy. That is my wish, the only one I want granted. The little seed of happiness in fertile ground plant...
