Motherless Daughters

From the diary... April 27th, 2018 It crossed my mind today how difficult it must have been for my mother to tell her children that she was going to die soon.

An Ode To Plea

Five Song Soundtrack

Have you ever pictured your life was a motion picture? Stared out the window of a bus or train with your headphones in, maybe on a rainy day, and that song comes on and just captures the moment? Or maybe it's you and your entourage's anthem and every time you hear it it propels you... Continue Reading →

The Aftermath: Manchester

"Police say 22 people have died, with 59 injured, in a suicide attack at Manchester Arena [at an Ariana Grande Concert]."
