60 Second Pluviophile

Pluviophile: (n) a lover of rain; someone who finds joy and peace of mind during rainy days. One minute. Just one minute of a gentle spring rain. Spring birds calling. I think you can hear the neighbor’s goats a couple times. You can’t see it yet, but fresh green growing things are coming up under […]

Spring Day(dreaming)

The sun is shining. Two of the volcanoes are smoking and my beach is nearly deserted. Where I live, we get 15 hours of daylight today, as the sun will set in about three hours at 21:35. It’s incredibly peaceful as I alternate between staring at the view and texting with a friend who lives […]

Finding Myself

I have found through living in this vast state that if I allow myself to lose myself, I end up actually finding my true self. Alaska, with its wide vistas; tall mountains; ample beaches and oceanfront landscapes; diverse wildlife; smoking volcanoes; long summer days and dark winter nights; the auroras; spirited folks with a mind […]

One Moment

You know me. I don’t ever post photos (except that one time). But today was different. I’m feeling a lot better than I have been. I was able to get down to the beach again, after months of not being able to. The beach is my therapy. My happy place. It’s winter here. The wind […]

Fly Away

Pull me into your arms Look deep into my eyes Brush my hair aside Let your fingertips graze my neck Lingering Stroke my throat Before bringing your lips to mine Gently at first Crush, taste, and devour me Trace your hands down Along my breasts, my ribs Grip my hips Draw me into you Wrap […]

Revisiting Contentment and Happiness

Working through my current issues of depression, I’ve been soul-searching, attempting to put a finger on what the underlying issue is. I was reading a fellow blogger’s website earlier and he mentioned getting attuned to the underlying issues and remembering that there is no “fix” but to accept what is and to embrace those failings. […]

PS: I Miss You

Remember those days and nights when we used to text each other every minute that we had? I do. When we shared every little stupid insignificant thing and it was mildly embarrassing but still I did it anyway. Telling you all the worst parts of me. I figured if you knew all the dumb stuff […]
