    I Have a Dream…

    I have not written in a long while. My little grey cloud of depression still sits over me, though there are bits and moments of Happyness that break through. I am doing my best to stay positive and smile and laugh despite the longing to find a place to just curl up and be left utterly alone till the rain has run its course.

    In Which I Made A Promise

    Hi everyone! Big day here in the States today. It’s an Election Day, so this afternoon I will be out exercising my right and civic duty to vote. I am probably one of the worst kind of voters because I don’t care for political parties. I’d rather vote for a person’s character instead of their promises. Wow. What a radical thought! But I did not get on here to talk about elections or voting or politics of any kind. Today’s post is short. In part because there wasn’t really a lot going on yesterday. But mostly because I started writing half of a death scene last night, and while I didn’t…
