    Open: My One Word 2022

    Where do I even begin to explain all that has happened since I last wrote here? In truth, I really don’t know. My body fell apart. BRCA2 reared its ugly head. I was cracked open and I’ve done my level best just to keep walking since. Step by step. Day by day. Healing. Getting stronger. […]

    Every year I spend the week between Christmas & New Years doing some self-reflection and journaling. Looking back at where I’ve come in the last 12 months. What worked and what didn’t.

This past few weeks I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about what was accomplished in 2012, and I was feeling a little frustrated. My life still isn’t in any semblance of order. There are unfinished things and loose […]
