Walk Away

I was sitting in the Chinese Buffett when it came on the radio. It's a song I used to listen to on repeat, sing along with in my car, mascara running down my face. "I keep going right back to the one thing I need to walk away from." At the time Christina Aguilera released her raw, soulful album "Stripped," I was in an unhappy relationship, being cheated on. Looking back, I was just as…

Women Speak: A Poem

Women speak With their eyes. Even if they shake their head "yes" And mean "no" You can see it in their smile. You can see it in their gaze. Women speak With a light touch. With a gentle hug, Or a long pause. You can hear them without words. You can hear them with no sounds. Women speak When other women can't. To fight for what is right. To lend a helping hand. You can…

The Year I Lived in a Haunted House

I found the apartment on Craigslist, which honestly might have been my first mistake. A cute second unit apartment of an old converted home, the hardwood floors and ample light seemed appealing. When we arrived for a walk through, we were surprised by the size of the apartment: two bedrooms, a living room, dining room, kitchen, porch, and back porch that overlooked the Wilmington skyline. We imagined growing our plants on the wide roof, and…

On Parting the Red Sea

Today I was speaking to my father on the telephone and we were having a conversation about God. Over the past few weeks, I have had a strong spiritual calling that I can't explain. Every time I try to turn to writing or my blog to explain the phenomena that have surrounded me, and the feelings that I have felt, it is like my heart is too full and the words just don't form. I'm…

An Ode to Thanks-Giving

Many of the poorest people I know are actually the happiest. Their days may be filled with strife of how to put a warm meal on the table, but once they settle down for dinner, they always give thanks. They know the value of that meal and the value of their family. That's because money doesn't feed the soul. This Thanksgiving, I have been thinking very much about the soul and how it should be…

Just Believe in Yourself

For the past few weeks I have been listening as friends and family share their concerns with me. They want my advice and I will always give it readily and always lend them a shoulder to cry on. But lately I have been pressing on my own shoulders. Through the practices of reiki and meditation, I am learning how to calm my own anxieties and heal my own hurts. And through these ancient practices, I…
