my youth

it was a vivid picture in my mind of wandering laying on my bed waiting for life to start. new beginnings wrapped up in coming of age stepping off buses climbing rocky mountains. to see the other side of life a world seen broadly with parachutes and good shoes to land safely on my feet. [...]

much love 2017

I've changed a bit this year. I am so happy that the posts I created show so much of the nature and peace I've felt throughout 2017. There was much growth and meaning to be had and as each year passes, I want that to continue. I am certain 2018 will be an interesting year. [...]
