Pre-Chemo-Brain


I start chemotherapy on Thursday and I'm feeling rather restless in the meantime. My partner Deejay and I went on a Costco/Fred Meyer run (disinfecting wipes, Purell, soap, more soap, blah blah sanitary blah my immune system is gonna be garbage) this weekend and spent a while cleaning up the apartment. And by that I... Continue Reading →

Webs


Three spiders have made their homes outside my apartment windows. Sometimes, I watch them spin their webs in the dark, orange streetlights barely illuminating the fibers. Usually they're sheltered from the rainy Oregon weather but every so often, when it rains sideways, huge holes appear in the meticulously symmetrical designs. I'm always so amazed at the...

I Live in Mist


What is it about weather that inspires us to write? More specifically, why are we always moved by rain? I suppose rain symbolizes new beginnings as it cleans the streets and helps the crops and flowers grow. I think there's something more, some other reason that we like to write poems and songs and entire... Continue Reading →

But where do you direct the anger you feel toward anxiety? Who do you bite? All the anxiety, everything that makes you... Continue Reading →

Write.


I haven't written in so long...I'm sorry! ...No, that's not an apology to you, it's one to myself. How dare I let myself stop writing after I got a tattoo that says "write." How. Dare. I. You heard right, kids! Caps got tatted... The inside of my left wrist now says "write" in typewriter font.... Continue Reading →

The Ride


Tonight, I discovered that nothing beats a bike ride. As many of you know, I love love love road biking. But lately, I haven't really been riding. Like, at all. And there are lots of reasons for that. Okay, mainly just one. I just finished my freshman year of college. I started out at my dream school,... Continue Reading →
