When I Was Unemployed And Starving, I Worked For A 1-800-Psychic Hotline

I'm All I've Got....And That's PLENTY!

[I just started blogging for the wonderful site/cause, I AM THAT GIRL. Below is an excerpt of my first blog post]

I had a revelation last night while I was in the bathroom (where, funnily enough, happens to be the room where I receive many of my spiritual “aha” moments). I was brushing my teeth while imagining Oprah was interviewing me on her Super Soul Sunday, as I often do. This time Oprah was asking me about love and how I knew it was time to let myself receive long-lasting love…

Be My Colours

Blooming blue gliding in river flow,

Arc into my arrow and bow.

Perky pink flowers in fairy-land,

I want wear you as my band.

Yummy yellow in sweet lime,

Set into my alarming chime.

Rusty Red locked in caution light,

Shhh… all escape with my kite flight.

White, you have no time to fade,

So be on my doors…

[The Curious Case of the Writer] Word Trafficking

It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

I stared at the phone ringing beside my laptop, its sound rattling my nerves like a jailhouse guard’s night stick against cell bars. It rang consistently, all times of the morning and night. I knew what the caller wanted. I knew what was at stake here. My stomach…
