The original title of this in 2000 was Thoughts, Theories, and Lollipops. My name is Sonja and I am lost in Wonderland.

Music…

November 8, 2019
I write about music so often and I think it gets lost in the shuffle. How an arrangement of words, melodies, harmonies, and instruments can impact your heart in such a small way. That small way turns into a big way and you find yourself on the cusp. Music has so many different meanings for…

  • Fall to Winter
    October 23, 2019
    The leaves have started to change to that deep color before they fall away paving way for a new life. We mourn them differently. Leaves falling is seen as a celebration, a shedding of the old to make way for the new. Couples walking down park pathways taking in deep breaths of hot chocolate hopin...

  • When?
    September 29, 2019
    I'm so tired of arguing and crying. I'm tired of feeling like everyone around me is looking for a reason to just leave. I'm tired of my accomplishments being belittled or not even recognized for what they are. When I am proud of actually being close to finishing a scarf I started over a year…

  • Questions
    September 1, 2019
    The pen barely touched the paper when the world changed. Just like Alice chasing a rabbit and falling into the unknown. I dropped my pen and have been in free fall. I'm not sure what is waiting or why it is making me anxious. I can feel it stirring though the knots in my stomach…

  • Tired but pushing forward
    August 25, 2019
    I'm tired of fighting. I'm tired of eyes that feel heavy with tears. I'm just tired. I need a rest in the forest. It just seems like these days the rest isn't long enough. I'm about to enter the long stretch. Working two jobs just to pay the rent. Somedays I worry if leaving behind…

  • Moonlight
    August 23, 2019
    We are just memories lost in someone else's high beams. The world is drifting, changing and yet I'm unmoved. Let's find a dream and attach ourselves to it. Let's find love in the shadows of youth. Learning to not read intention in the moment is often difficult but worth it in the end. Because rea...

  • We’re all Someones Song lyrics
    August 14, 2019
    Someone stops and thinks about you when they hear a certain song. Let that sink in for a minute. It might be good, it might be bad. Does it really matter? You at least pop up in someone's memory, you left an impression. Happy Wednesday.   -Sonja   PS: Didn't realize I could keep it…

  • Still that same 17 year old
    August 8, 2019
    In a week I'll be in Michigan. I'll be with friends and I can not wait. A much needed break from the humdrum life I live. I'm excited to celebrate all the things and sing our hearts out. Excited to get all the hugs and share all the stories. Now if only I could focus…

  • Frozen
    August 7, 2019
    The air rushes through the leaves as I stand at the top of the hill and autumn arrives early this year. Is it the chill in the air or my heart? It's hard to tell these days. I try to distract myself from thoughts of you but you always have a way of creeping in.…

  • Bend in the Wind
    July 28, 2019
    Trees have been here for thousands of years. Surviving everything we throw at them. Bending with the wind to stay tall. I wish I had their adaptability. There are lessons to be learned from observing them. I read The Overstory last month, and I’ve become hyper aware of these machines that keep us...
