I decided to go for a solitary hike on Saturday. I’ve been a hiker for most of my adult life, but I’ve never quite felt safe going alone. I’ve always admired women who could do this, and enjoy it, but when I was alone, I felt hyper-vigilant and that wasn’t very relaxing.

I was recently given a gift that reminded me of my maternal grandfather, and so I've been thinking a lot about him. He is one of the few people who has come to me in a dream, and upon awakening I felt deep a sense of longing for his presence. He was (to me) a… Continue reading Take a new picture…a kinder one.

I kept trying to ignore the sound, but his… Continue reading Supporting a new belief
