The fireflies were out last night Floating, flittering through air Glowing, Flashing beads of bright yellow Blinking, Like distant ocean liners, Like beacons on the horizon, Lighthouses on bluffs, Nighttime cities from high above   Sparkling, blurring like bokeh Twinkling like scattered notes of a piano's song, Notes weaving out of the staff and into...

Panorama Point

Panorama Point, Golden Gate Canyon State Park CO It was a cold, rainy April day so I didn't get the perfect picture conditions, but that's okay.

A Trip to East Texas

I am SO excited to write this blog post! East Texas, or more accurately, Northeast Texas, is very special to me and my family because it's where my parents grew up and met each other.

Managing Stress

So...I didn't plan this post out before I wrote it and as a result, it's not structured in any way. Basically, I'm just rambling, so I'm sorry if it sounds like I'm all over the place. ANYWAYS, enjoy!   I used to constantly think to myself, "I just have to do these things, finish this... Continue Reading →
