Who am I?
Sometimes I think I know, sometimes I forget.
Sometimes I need to look in the mirror the remember,
sometimes in the eyes of someone I love.
The simple answer - I am me.
I think, learn, wonder - know.
I write, play, and dream,
For this moment I am alive,
for the space of a moment.
Who knows what could happen?
Well, I fell asleep during my Daily Meditation and woke at the end because it rolled over into some music my brain registered as not being part of the meditation. It was a 2-minute nap at most, but I actually feel pretty good. Still, I wanted to listen to the topic of the day, so…Continue Reading...
“I like flaws and feel more comfortable around people who have them. I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.” Augusten Burroughs When I do these Daily Calm meditations, I sit in my desk chair and lean back - between back and knee injuries this is easiest for me...Continue Reading...
I know how tarot works. I first and foremost believe in science, specifically psychology - I understand how self-fulfilling prophecies work. I know that reading tarot makes people deal with the subconscious that is right below the surface. I know all this, and I still do tarot. The thing is, quit...Continue Reading...

Thoughts are how our brains compartmentalize various issues and start to make sense of our world around us....Continue Reading...
I have not written here in quite a while yet again. I am getting back into the habit of writing for myself and as a way to be able to manage my mental health, which really fell apart a few years ago. I have been working my way back, and am now working my way…Continue Reading...
And because I remain bad at this, I haven't written since January... I have time to write, but like so many others my brain gets sucked into something else - and very rarely is that something else ever good. I have a lot of books to read, and I love reading and am excited to…Continue Reading...
I am not good at this anymore. I haven't been for a long time. I stopped writing, and it became harder to start again and again. I did this before Open Diary went away; barely wrote, wouldn't log in, would start and stop and not save or save drafts I never went back to. I…Continue Reading...
Second day of spring break and I stayed up so late that I am exhausted like a kid. And then, I failed as an adult - I discovered cinnamon rolls in my fridge... At no point in time should cinnamon rolls be an entire meal, let alone two. But that has made me hate the sun…Continue Reading...
When OD went away, it took some time for me to find a place to write, and even then I never really used any I signed up for. I eventually used Prose Box a few times, even a website called EWSentinel's Easy Diary for a time. I never really like either of them, but since Open…Continue Reading...
