Life is like a plant.

You can water it,

take care of it,

give it new soil and lots of sun,

but it will continue to grow at its own pace.

Not faster,

not slower,

and it doesn’t help to push it.

Solo cuídala (just take care of her).

Give it time.

Give it space.

Give energy, love an...

“Rebecca!  Can you come help me with something?!”  I heard my teacher call from the other end of the shadow-filled hallway.

We were crowded around the lunch table, sitting on different size stools and spread along the windowsill eating birthday cake.  The loud laug...

Recently I had a conversation with my little sister about how to be social active in the 21st century.

As it peaked my interest, I decided to do a follow-up google search wondering what I could learn from the good-old worldwide web.

I find myself having a doubting and/or questioning mind.

Conceivably, these two minds are quite similar. 

But of course there are a few slight differences, which I want to speak about today.

or at least to publish writings I have left sitting in the folders on my computer.

Today I am sharing a po...

A cool, crisp, autumn day.

Hot chocolate awaiting and apple cake.

With trees the colors of fire burning,

Walking home from school

in her own little world but not alone

as her mother waits for her at home.

Two girls pass by

With blonde curly hair, crackers in their hands and a...

Once upon a time, I boarded something that went somewhere to meet someone.

Once upon a time, I boarded a boat that went straight home to be alone.

Once upon a time in a distant place much further than outer space, I boarded a train that went to Spain because I wanted to...

Recently, I was in a dance workshop where we were encouraged to stretch and reach to our maximum.

We were asked to stretch starting from our center and extending out through are shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands and fingers; eventually, also making our way down to the fe...

The beauty in going for  a walk

is noticing,

a new vein

on the leaf 

of the tree

that you've seen growing

on a thousand different streets.

With tape across my mouth I struggle silently.

Sometimes flailing my arms in an uncoded sign language that I hope people can understand.

And other times sitting quietly,

wondering if it’s something about which I should speak.

What if I were to speak?

One simple word after a...
