Sometimes, apparently, I have to bang my head against a brick wall for a long time – a long, long time – before the solution appears. /if you haven’t already picked up on it, the tone for this blog post is snark..dripping snark/ Sigh. Maybe I should replace “sometimes” with “all too often.” And let’s talk about how sometimes – ehem, all to often – it seems the solution is so, so simple.

What is your dark side? How do you fight for the light? Or, do you even try…to identify, acknowledge, face – and rise above? — UPDATE on DAD: He’s local. Like super local. At a rehab facility in Graham.

How it has – over time – shackled those I love. How it tries to keep my child disconnected, in the darkness. How it feeds me doubt – An endless feast of doubts in my ability to love, to speak truth, to shine light… — I feel it. There’s...Read More
