The Avocado Plant and The End

This morning I plucked my avocado plant by the stem and threw it into the trash. BAM! Gone! It was so easy to dispose of, but why had I decided to grow an avocado plant in the first place? In truth, I have always wanted to grow a plant from seed to full-blown produce. But…

Three Questions to Ask Yourself as the Year Draws to a Close

Understanding the Value of Self Reflection Photo Credits: Adhitya Andanu 2020 is winding down like an old music box, so long sad-girl-summer. It’s winter now, and all the trees are preparing for the long haul while we humans continue to fumble our way through life haphazardly. It has been a sad year filled with controversy…

Hello, Again

Hi there, it has been such a long time since I posted. I hope that you are well and that the writing gods of woe have smiled upon your visage. There is so much I would love to say and so little space to say it. I wanted to fill you in on my poetry,…

A Note On Consideration

The world is shaking at this moment, but rather than talking about the apparent ramifications that have befallen us. I rather talk about something that we can control—food waste. There are so many people going into stores to do nothing more than panic buy, causing a wave of hysteria and wasting the food they hoarded…

Rocks On Riverbeds And Tumbling Shores

When I was younger, we used to go down to the riverside and skip rocks. My siblings, and sometimes, a myriad of cousins would join us all yelling and run at full speed along the dirt road. We would often forget our shoes, small children practicing small acts of defiance against their parents.  We were…

Sunday is International Women’s Day? Heck Yeah!

It is International Women’s Day all around the world today, and I am happy! I love celebrating people and their achievements; it makes me happy when they overcome their obstacles. So what should we do? How do you celebrate the women in your life? Obviously, I don’t mean the people who have mistreated you or…

March On: March Goals and Hopes

A new month has begun with its hopes and dreams; I find myself looking on as an observer, rather than one who participates in such action. In simpler terms, I have watched the people around me grow and evolve, while I poke the world with my stick and complain. Yes, it is cold, and there…

Sunday Funday

You may have noticed my absence for the past month and a half, and you may have cared and wondered what happened. Depression happened as it usually does this time of year. And it has not been kind to me. As a new month begins, I want to take the time to talk about the…

January Goals

It’s a new year, and the resolutions are amazing to read. This year will be my third year of making no resolutions, and just yelling to the winds of old “DO YOUR WORST AND WATCH ME SOAR!!!!” Lol, it sounds like I am challenging the writing gods, and I am.  I should pick my fights…

December In Review

December came and went in a blur of emotions, empty gift bags, and the uncontrollable feeling that I am slowing moving towards the abyss of thinking- vast and unknown. Looking back at it all, I find myself happy that it’s over. I did not decorate for Christmas this year; no one got presents, I got…
