Daily Prompt: Attempt #8 (Circus) Been so busy taking care of others, that self-care has kinda gone out the window this past week; look up 'circus' in the dictionary and it's the definition of my life lately. My head hurts. Hope is so hard to give up. Hope that things will get better, be different, … Continue reading Circus

Daily Prompt: Attempt #7 (Blank) I've nothing solid to write in response today... Sorry!
Daily Prompt: Attempt #6 (Countless) Sitting here, wondering how to start. I want to be spontaneous. I want to say, "Hey, friend! Let's go for coffee, breakfast, lunch, dinner; my treat. Let's settle in and catch up on all the latest, watch a movie, take a walk, just hang." And I have. I just haven't got … Continue reading Countless.
Daily Prompt: Attempt #5 (Grain) I am sometimes overwhelmed at how little each of us knows one another, how instantly and deeply complete strangers can connect and share when some of those we would call our closest friends and allies can have such a huge impact on our lives and yet remain ignorant of some … Continue reading Not alone
Daily Prompt: Attempt #4 (Phase) Today's prompt is "Phase", and I have to tell you that I'm in the midst of one.

Daily Prompt: Attempt #3 (Dream) PC: Pixabay.com (Alexis) I woke up today at 11am. Yes! Victory! It was amazing. I had an amazing sleep and actually slept in! No dreams, no worries, no alarms, just pure bliss, complete with crusty eyes and crinkly sheet impressions tattooed over my entire body. I went through my morning … Continue reading Like the dead…

And that I'm too sleepy to do anything about it. I'm a minimalist that has overindulged slightly and it's put me off balance. So, … Continue reading Retreat!
Daily Prompt: Attempt #2 (Saga) I heard it said once that for an artist to be happy is a kind of self-sabotage, because all the great tales and songs and sagas hinge on struggle and sacrifice and turmoil, and if you get to a place in life where you are happy and thriving, well then, … Continue reading Saga
Daily Prompt: Attempt #1 (Sing) I love to sing. I sing by myself and with others all the time - just not by myself in front of other people. Choir was my favourite part of elementary school - and dodgeball. Even though I felt I was one of the few who actually wanted to be … Continue reading ‘Happy Birthday’ is tough, apparently.
Feeling more than a little lost right now. I try so hard to keep up, to keep going, to keep smiling and sometimes it just never seems to be enough. I trust people. Other people's minds jump to drugs and trouble and trauma and strangeness. And I just see a guy that wants to talk, tell … Continue reading No idea
