this year, i’m thankful for the unconditional love that surrounds me and the peace of mind to move forward in difficult times. i’m thankful for the health and happiness of those i love and care about and for the moments that made me breathe a little lighter. this year was hard, but it’s getting better all the time. happy thanksgiving, don’t ever forget to be grateful.

reinventing a never-ending love
you know the dream. it’s the one where you leave your things
behind and move to a big city. it’s the one you have three times
every week. it’s the one you wake up from feeling lighter. on
the other side of the bed, his back cracks like a broken promise
and you hear it so loud in the darkness, like nothing else exists
but you and him and the way you want to mend his every small
bruise, his every tiny cut, his every solitary tear. you feel yourself
growing older and more tired and opportunities are slipping away,
but in the middle of the night, when you wake up frightened, he
wraps his arms around you and you remember how to breathe.

we shared a jack and coke in the middle of a sweaty crowd and let the music warm our bones with it’s gentle healing powers, the room humming with a sense of togetherness. a man on a lonely stage with nothing but a guitar and a voice that carries him through people- i stood there in the moment and felt it all wash over me, a sense of understanding and belonging. i’ve been feeling empty and weak for some time now, but your hand found my hand while he sang my love, you’re the one i want to watch the ship go down with. we shared a jack and coke in the middle of a sweaty crowd and i thought, goddamn, isn’t this romantic?
