What Is Your Superpower?

Over the holidays…whoa, wait, what? Did I just type over the holidays? Aren’t we a few months past the holidays, anxiously awaiting Spring and trees with leaves and flowers blooming and sunshine and warmth? With an emphasis on warmth? Yes, yes to all. Don’t judge me. I am so awaiting warm Spring like everyone else … [Read more…]

Balancing Act

I opened my eyes, panicked, trying to focus on the big blue blur of the alarm clock. As I fumbled for my glasses I realized it was 6:22 a.m. and my daily me time had *poof*, vanished in slumber. I can’t remember the last time I slept through an alarm. I must have needed the … [Read more…]

No legs? No problem.

“I’m going too fast!” I shouted into sharp, crisp air that would never deliver the message to the man tethered behind me. My words vanished into the wind leaving only unrecognizable, soft sounds drifting.

Missing Dad

I should be doing a hundred other things right now. Working is one of them, sorry Work. Wrapping presents, making breakfast, riding my bike, sending out a few more Christmas cards, doing laundry, repotting a plant, and on and on, sorry Jodi and sorry Family. The only thing I can do is sit here and … [Read more…]

The Three Truths

On Instagram last week I posted a photo of words that I wrote on a construction wall near a restaurant I frequent in Maryland. The wall is intended for graffiti, at least temporarily, while the shop next door is being renovated. I was in awe of the mostly inspirational messages written there. A lot of … [Read more…]

The Big MyStery

May 30th is World MS Day. I have MS. You likely know of multiple sclerosis and you likely know of at least one other person living with MS. It is a mystery illness that has been poetically named a snowflake disease because it manifests itself so uniquely in everyone diagnosed with it. A thumbprint. Sure, there are … [Read more…]
