How they fell in love

You traded your ship for me?

Saltwater

“Suppose that particular night never happened, the way a wave crashing ashore empties itself and trickles back in separate communities, mingling yet aloof, a diminishing cortege.”

O at the Edges

 

Saltwater

What if you close your eyes
and your throat relinquishes

the morning’s bright
fingers, freed from bruises.

Suppose that particular night
never happened, the way

a wave crashing ashore
empties itself and trickles

back in separate communities,
mingling yet aloof, a

diminishing cortege. What
is the question? Take this

spoon. Fill it with saltwater.
Upend it into the pail. Observe.

“Saltwater” was first published inNine Muses Poetry in May 2018.

GRACE, NOT PERFECTION !

Even if you can’t see it, its possible. You have more in you than what you realize. The power from within is from God and not from us. (2 Corinthians 4:7)

The Godly Chic Diaries

He transformed my mind and steadied my walk, so I may fearlessly climb mountains. (Psalm 18:33)

I hold myself to a standard of grace, not perfection. This year has been one of the toughest and most challenging regarding my faith and trust in God. It’s humbling because at times you think you are stronger than you are. Then the Lord shows you “Ahhhh we still have work to do…”

How many times have you accepted defeat before even trying?!? We are so quick to limit ourselves, deciding who we are and who we aren’t and that’s it. We accept the world’s made-up rules for which we are supposed to be, and believe we cannot break theses rules. Some stay stuck. Stuck in the expectations of others. Stuck going through motions. Stuck knowing there has to be something more. We stay in our little identity boxes, not allowing ourselves to ‘stretch…

The Colors of Autumn in the Midwest

Where in the Midwest or elsewhere would you recommend going to capture the colors of Autumn?

Please share your ideas in the comments below 🙂

 

The Adventures of elATLboy

It’s a time of transition in the Midwestern United States and other cooler climates. The transition between summer and winter, warm weather and cold, frappuccinos and hot apple cider, baseball and football and leaving and going to work in the sun to in the dark. It’s Autumn.

Another thing that is changing is deciduous trees are going from green and lively to bare. One of the things that makes me and many others happy is what happens in-between. Let’s call it the colors of Autumn.

Recently I’ve gone around parts of Michigan and Ohio to capture these Autumn colors. Now that’s what a hard frost looks like!

Along with frost on the ground (and car windows ahhhh) comes a cool Autumn mist hovering over the water. Well unfortunately after the leaves changing color, the time will come for…

Normal

“Fake it til you make it. There’s some good life advice. I’ll try and fake being normal. There, now that’s some sound advice… Isn’t it?”

Stuff nobody says

Sometimes, I think I’d like to know what it’s like to be “normal.” I’m weird. I’m not even a cool kind of weird. Just weird. My brain doesn’t process or work the way it’s supposed to, I don’t think. I ask too many questions. I test boundaries and rules. I get into trouble. Then, I think about all those quotes from crazy people that say things like, “Just be yourself; to thine own self be true” and so on and so forth. One of my favorites was from Practical Magic (because I get all my best life advice from movies, books, quotations from people far more crazy than I am), that said, “Don’t strive for normal, child. It rather denotes a lack of courage.”

And then I think, “Yeah, I have courage.” And then, that courage gets me into more trouble. Why do I take life advice from people that…

Waking Up with Depression and Anxiety, a play in one act. 

“ME: *turning off my alarm* Feeling pretty good about myself today!

DEPRESSION: Really? Did you forget about all the sad and/embarrassing things that have happened in your life? “

Rhymes with Atari

[CURTAIN RISES]

ME: *turning off my alarm* Feeling pretty good about myself today!

DEPRESSION: Really? Did you forget about all the sad and/embarrassing things that have happened in your life?

ME: No, I didn’t forget, I just-

DEPRESSION: Remember that time in ninth grade when someone wrote something mean about you in your friend’s yearbook?

ME: Well I’d rather not, but yes I do remember that. Thanks.

DEPRESSION: I could do this all day! In fact, I think I will. Remember back in high school when that friend of yours died? Remember that time at work when you made a mistake and everyone laughed at you?

ME: I remember. Please stop bringing these things up. There’s nothing I can do about them now except feel sad.

DEPRESSION: Maybe you should sit down and draw a cartoon or write something. That would make you feel better.

ME: That’s a good idea.

Things I’m Afraid My Cats Will Someday Say To Me
