When We Judge Ourselves Most Harshly


"A writer – and, I believe, all persons – must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our misfortunes, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art." ~Jorge Luis Borges

She Always Waits for Me


“You’re a liar. You said you would wear the blue one and you said you would wear your hair down. I’m beginning to think that you just tell me things to shut me up.”

I step in the front door, kiss my accuser on the cheek and bear hug her to change the subject. Darian doesn't hug me back. A punishment. She looks at me with feigned disapproval but her eyes dance. Her eyes always dance.
