Just the Facts, Subjectively

I created a post earlier today, inspired by my friend’s child going missing (she’s found and safe now). It brought me back to my own history and living on the streets.

I called the post Flashbacks, Family Secrets, and Forgiveness. It’s a list of confessions, impressions of, my family history. After posting, I shifted it from public to private.

I spent hours writing that post – why did I switch it to private? I need to tell the stories as stories, period. Good stories. Close and personal and detached. Maybe fiction, maybe fact.

By writing that post, I came up with ideas for what I want to do next in how I will tell the stories!

Perhaps I will share the post again, maybe as I begin to tell the stories as I want to tell them. For now, I am inspired to write in a way I haven’t done in a long while!

I’m finding my way back to writing! I’m thrilled.

Have a lovely weekend.

Love one another. Let people you love know you love them.

Make some art.

Send a handwritten note to a stranger.

Talk to your plants.

Peace and love,

I'm a rock-n-roller poet who left the Big Apple for the Big Sky Desert where I've been letting it be and grooving with universal love, singing to the gods, dancing with the muses and bicycling with dreamtime messengers. I like altering my reality through imagination, movement, breath, and makin' stuff.

  1. Yeah, I caught that, H Troy. It was too up close for me to just like and I thought I’d bide my time and mull it over, try to find something to say…so, I’m glad that it’s private now because that means that I can say… I liked it. Peas xo
