My 2nd Blogoversary

I started this blog 2 years ago in an effort to feel connected.
To anyone. 
I was sick. I was lonely. I felt stuck.

I am in such a different place today. In this moment. 
I'm working hard to accomplish a goal, no longer feeling stuck I know exactly what I need to do to get where I want to go. 
Not nearly as sick, I can leave on a quick trip somewhere without needing to carry 6 bottles of medication with me everywhere. I can just grab my keys and go.
And the reason I've not been blogging as often?
I'm no longer as lonely. Not feeling like my blog was my attempt grasping for anything I could get. A simple connection to the outside world. 
I am surrounded at all hours by people. And more than that, people who care. 
I walk across campus and get hugs from 25 different people on the average day. 
I laugh. A lot. 
And I love it.

So again, it's my blogoversary. 
And I am so glad to have the last two years documented so I can look back and truly see just how far I've come.

(My best friend here at school (right) and I took this yesterday.)

And so began the small talk to cover the silence…


Surrounded by the grassses

The wind softly rustled the blades

Awakening the halcyonic stillness around her

She knelt to the warm ground

Armed by the remains of the sun’s rays

“I miss you” she whispered.

And so began the small talk to cover the silence…

Three Word Poem [eclipse, cradle, drift]

The eclipsing shadow on his face
Cradling him in my arms
I can do nothing but stare
To be here again
Deep into his eyes
The glassy blue that is reserved only for a child
I remember
What it was like
Back to truth
Clasping to memories
All I have left
My eyes close
It drifts away
