The 500 Letters

When I was young, my parents used to call me an open book.  I used to share everything that was on my mind.  But for the last decade or so, the real things that trouble me, or break my heart stay with me.  You probably find it hard to believe but I share the most in these letters to you.  You have been my one…

Get A Hairbrush

Lately, I have found myself inside a new feeling.  Almost as if things are finally making sense.  I understand the hard things better and appreciate the easy things more.  I taste loneliness but can sense the fullness of my life too.  I respect the need for gratitude.  The devastating but timely lateness of wisdom.  If I could name this new feeling I would call it,…

The Time Thieves

Could these letters I am writing to you every week, be my diary entries?  I know. Just imagine for a second.  If we could all look inside each other’s journals.  All of a sudden the whole world would be revealed, no mysteries left to solve.  No hidden agendas.  No misunderstandings. No secrets.  No Invisible Loss.  Someone told me the other day exactly what they thought…
