climbing out of the swamp

What did you tell people that you wanted to be when you “grow up”? For me, it was a doctor. Briefly, a tap dancer on Broadway topped the list, and later a forensic scientist, but quite consistently through the years my answer to that question was a doctor. A pediatrician, to be exact. I heldRead more

be where your feet are

Be where your feet are. Enjoy the day. There’ll be a day where there won’t be another day.

esse quam videri

Here’s to chasing dreams, love, and a life full of laughter.
But most of all – here’s to being, rather than seeming to be.

don’t quit your daydream

I’ve had a lot of dreams over the course of my 21 years on this Earth… Anything from being a professional tap dancer to being a doctor to playing Cinderella at Disney World. But, if you know me at all, you know just how long I’ve dream of turning writing into a career – and justRead more

i’m not sorry.
