Mile Markers

We live lives full to the brim with various events and doings, but only a handful of them are mile markers. Events that mark a significant period of time, events that veer us off course, and – if we were a house – these… Continue Reading “Mile Markers”

My Gap-Toothed Smile

When I was little I had a gap in my two front teeth. It was large enough to fit a nickel and a dime pressed together perfectly. I know this because a friend handed me a nickel and asked if it would fit between… Continue Reading “My Gap-Toothed Smile”

Landmines

If you don’t love yourself and feel wholly worthy as you are, this is the evidence. These are the landmines you’re planting your relationships.

Find her soul and capture her there.
