Living a Meaningful Life

What it truly means to live an authentic and meaningful life has become obscured. Advertisers know this. Their very existence depends on it. They play on our primitive fears of not being “good enough.” They prey on our foolishly egotistical longings for more money, more materials, more of anything and everything beyond what we currentlyContinue reading “Living a Meaningful Life”

Scotland Scribbles

The little train takes us far away for the day. Just a ways down the track one can find the water. A sweet escape from the runnings of regular things. I can taste the ocean, while winds roughen rosy cheeks and slip through shoulders shuddering in the cold. But still it is beautiful. Tiny racksContinue reading “Scotland Scribbles”

Peppermint Palms

The sky melts into the sun, swirling into itself as peppermint touches the tongue. Tropical trees bend to touch sun before liquid colors blend into the chill. It’s been my home for seven years. Not born, but one I chose for myself because I felt something. Here. Beneath the tree’s shadows, striping over green likeContinue reading “Peppermint Palms”

Returning to your routine

Within the last few weeks, I’ve grown busy in other aspects of my life. I’ve gotten a new job or two. But in doing so, I’ve found that I’ve consistently neglected my regular routine. There are certain things that I like to do each day, as well as commitments I’ve made to myself that haveContinue reading “Returning to your routine”

Hey now. You’re a plan star. Get your plan on, go plan.

Ever intend on being productive and then find yourself at the end of the day asking just what happened? Good. Keep reading. Some say that scheduling our lives is an extremely limiting way to go about one’s day. But if we were to look closely, we’d see that just the opposite is true. If weContinue reading “Hey now. You’re a plan star. Get your plan on, go plan.”

Budapest babbles

Warmth hits like the summer night we haven’t felt in a while. Little white hats bob up and down, teeny hammers tinker outside the glass of the bus window we travel through. They are building. And we are brought into a little world where runaways have come to set up shop. Revitalizing ruins, music playsContinue reading “Budapest babbles”

Letting go

I feel there is this duality that we face as humans. On one end, we crave validation. Oftentimes, we strive for success in other fields because of the foolish belief that when we get there, we will finally have the approval of those who have been withholding their love, fully and wholly, for so long.Continue reading “Letting go”

Thoughts on black trans women during Black Lives Matter movement

Black lives matter. This includes transgender black women who are arguably the most marginalized in our society. Their deaths have not been given the media attention they deserve. We cannot give voice to some discrimination while the rest is left in the dark. Let’s work to change this. WARNING: Suitable for mature readers only. TheContinue reading “Thoughts on black trans women during Black Lives Matter movement”

Milan musings

Rainbows burst out of the glass, refracting illuminations of color on the pillar like tinker bell. A fairy’s disco. Reflections linger in the empty aisle, a ghost caught in the spotlight as particles of light hover in kaleidoscopic dust. It’s so beautiful. We see it in shutter speed. A story bending though, the ray ofContinue reading “Milan musings”

Munich musings

Spinning slowly to see magnificent spires from so far down, as ghosts slip through the spaces between my hands like the breeze. Empty now, I can picture cartwheels in my head and I wouldn’t touch a thing. But people were here once, uncomfortably so, shoving each other to claim some space for themselves if onlyContinue reading “Munich musings”
