I wish I could pull you out from the fluorescent light
Away from the hum of industrial voltage that surrounds you.
I wish I could remove you from the pushpins on grey walls
And from the silly words you bicker over
And from your need to say only right things
And from days you must wear your shirt that way.
Let's order chocolate milk
And drink every last drop from a straw.

I'm so happy to see that you have returned. You were missed.

Twin Turns

Naomi and I are twins. A year ago, I had a good friend spurn me. This year, it's Naomi's turn to be spurned. I'm angry, since I see Naomi's pain daily. I remember what it was like. But I look at the person Naomi will become because of this pain. I have become a new person, and so will she.

It's amazing what strengthens us and stimulates the process of growth. Some of the same things we see as impossible to overcome, are oftentimes looked upon later as our greatest gifts.

You haven't written a post in a while; I hope all is well.

But Seriously

When I became an adult, I suddenly learned that I'm not supposed to take anything too seriously.
I'd rather be a kid.

didn't anyone ever tell you that you don't have to be an adult?
