Tag Archives: fear


It’s 3 am. I can’t sleep, and I’m in the midst of getting over a cold. It started with a sore throat which some might say is a result of not expressing myself; there must be something I want to say, but don’t know how to say it. I’ll interpret it as a lack of keeping this blog updated for the past six months.

And where have I been? All over and under and in between.

What do I have to say? Thoughts are fleeting. I don’t have a story or an entry that can be neatly tied up with a bow, or something with a clear beginning, middle, and end.

Isn’t that what we’re taught and what I teach about story lines?

Those are all the reasons that it’s taken me so long to publish something. And yet so much has happened! But where to begin? I suppose, at where, I left off before.

Please be so kind as to keep reading.

For Mom

you stayed

Silence on my part

And you stayed


You are where you need to be

pain and all


I came full circle


there’s this and this and this and



I have my own timing,

my own way.



I am here right now.


Fear is

Steps in mud

calendars stagnant


fear is

just being where I am.


And you stayed

And you walked

and you stay

and  you

walk with me.
