Sometimes when life is going well - incredibly amazing even - I can feel a sense of fear that it isn't true. Sometimes when life unexpectedly becomes so enjoyable, I fear that it is unexpected because it cannot be trusted. Life has not been great to me on this planet, and those who were supposed to be there for me and share their love for me ended up falling me when I needed them the most. It's unfortunate for us all that my second thought about the wonder and beauty in this world is to believe that it must be a cruel joke, a lie. My deepest pain is then thinking that it must be a lie and that I deserve to be fooled, that I deserved to be abandoned as a child and I will once again be abandoned as an adult. I'm constantly afraid that just around the corner I will find out how much things are going to change in my life and who is turning their back on me. I worry that I will never figure out how to just enjoy this moment of love and peace.
Halloween is my favorite holiday season. Fall is so beautiful.

Waking up is hard to do sometimes when you can't see the love laid out before you. While expectation is the root of struggle, surprises are the carriers of hope. 🌹
❤️ My love has only one compass, bearing West and to the ocean, to where the water rushes, and crashes, and sweeps in, and goes out. Heavy is the sky with it's gray clouds and gray light. Ever still I'll find my way through these endless starry nights. 🌃
Built our new Tornado foosball table at work today! #tech #digitaltrends #foosball #lovewhereyouwork
That time the sky was full of smoke and the sun burned red for many nights and many mornings. Our eyes burned while our hearts wept, and with each passing day we feel one step further from resolution - one step further to restoration. This is our home, our forest and it's waters, our shade and our sustenance. As we now age, surely we will see vegetation and wildlife return to it's once luscious rainforest, still, never again will it be the place we've once pictured in our minds, in our hearts, and in our devices. We sigh and breathe out the last carbon traces of was once all of this planet's #beautiful #columbiarivergorge. #forever.
Someone burned down my backyard and now I'm living in a dystopian apocalypse of smoke.
Time to start #writing and tapping into my #creativity again in order to reach my goal of being a more #accomplished #artist.
