But I just can't get this dreamin' off me It feels good to sit down here. I've been dabbling on this post all week and I think that's my plan, work on them bits at a time unless I have that spark in my fingers. But this one I definitely wanted to take my time.… Continue reading Traveling Man: We’re going hiking pt. 1
It's been almost 5 months since I sat down and wrote a blog post. I don't know where that time went. Like, I do, but I don't. I know that there are many of you who feel the same way. It's not just that the pandemic has played a role in your perception of time,… Continue reading Traveling Man: A new book
This month is National Poetry Writing Month – or #NaPoWriMo. It’s called 30 for 30 – 30 poems for 30 days. I wrote every day last April and was blown away at what came out on the screen, but also how relieving it was. I wrote in high school. I was on the school paper.… Continue reading Writing Prompt
8 letters. 2 words. More than 1 meaning, depending on who you ask.

Lastly, with a new year in a few days, it's possible that you may feel like you have… Continue reading Wellness Refocused Education: How to create a plan to achieve a goal

Not forcing myself to relive everything that happened, but find those points that caused the… Continue reading Being uncomfortable is necessary for growth
The past few weeks I’ve been doing a bit more reflecting on my writing this year. More specifically, poetry – what it does for me right now, how and where it started last fall and how I want it to continue to evolve. It’s kind of weird for me to see its evolution this past… Continue reading What I’ve learned from writing poetry so far this year
This is a collaboration and ad post. I recently met Alicia of Boxed In, Co who makes the She Matters Subscription Box through the Boston Business Women's networking group. Over the next few weeks, we're doing a few collaborations together and she was gracious enough to push herself to write up a quick post for… Continue reading Guest post: What can self-care look like?
