One day, I will tell my story of what I managed to overcome in my life, and it will become someone else’s survival guide. Thomas Slatin
“Almost,” the quiet sentinel of uncharted realms, where wishes become like fireflies dancing in the twilight of our yearning, casting a glow upon the silhouettes of our unattained desires. It is a word that lingers, etched upon our hearts like the fading ink of a love letter never sent, a token of the times we dared to dream but were held back by the gravity of reality.

No Time And No Words Did I Waste
My dear friend of 10+ years talked to me on Skype for an hour and 45 minutes. Gerry ███████████ an openly gay and borderline effeminate college best friend of mine who despite his busy schedule, always finds time to keep in touch.

Springtime in Vermont is a magical time of rebirth and renewal, when the world awakens from its slumber and bursts forth in a symphony of color and sound.

The Misfit’s Triumph
I have experienced life as both a misfit and someone who has received praise, traversing paths which at first seem to be at odds. In those moments when fortune’s favor shone upon me, and praise was bestowed, I savored the elixir of achievement and the comforting embrace of validation. Meanwhile, as a pariah, I discovered the fortitude to stand firm in my convictions, an unyielding adaptability, and the courage to remain steadfastly true to my inner essence. These seemingly discordant episodes have, like the harmonious interplay of light and shadow, refined my ability to empathize with souls navigating the labyrinth of varied circumstances. They have illuminated the path toward personal…
When I was a little girl, I told my mom that one day, I would have a wall of stickers in my house. She would often reply to such statements by saying, “when you have your own house, you can do whatever you want.” Well, today is the day. Amelia and I are starting our own sticker wall in the hallway that leads to the basement of our house.
The Enduring Power Of Love
The sky was a canvas of pastel hues, as the sun descended in a final blaze of glory. The moon, a luminescent orb, rose slowly into the night, casting a mystical glow upon the earth.

For though the sun’s fiery passion was spent, its legacy burned on in the soft radiance of the moon, a testament to the enduring power of love.
