My pledge to love

sunset-couple-pledge

This is my pledge…

I will trust you enough to tell you the truth as I know it in any given moment.

I won’t disappear without a word. If I need space or time, I will tell you.

Emotional hangover, part 2

forgive-myself

Last week I wrote about feeling an emotional hangover from a major recognition and restructuring of my own reality.

The truth is that a week later, I’m still there.  I’m emotionally exhausted and still working things through in my mind and heart.  This isn’t an easy place for me to be in.

Why I won’t follow a guru

guru

Emerging from hibernation

hibernation

When 2011 ended and took with it the relationship I had hoped might last forever, I spent a lot of time questioning myself.  Never having given my heart fully before, the relationship represented a whole new world for me.

greeting-card

I can’t say that I’m much in the Valentine’s Day mood this year.  Had things been different, I would be on vacation in New Mexico right now.

But alas, I find myself single on Valentine’s Day.  Which reminds me of a conversation I had with fellow blogger Momma Sunshine a couple of weeks ago.  She …

The end of a beautiful relationship

outtosea

This is a post I never, ever wanted to write. But here goes…

A safe place to land

writing

Yesterday I had the chance to sit with my friend Becky and write.  We’re both writers – and spend a fair amount of time writing on our own – but there’s something really special about sitting with another writer and having instant feedback.  I loved how present Becky was while she was listening and the …
