Gas can

be.YOU.tiful

How do you want to be known? Is it based on your past or would you die if people only remembered you that way? What about your sins or your victimizations? Would you like to walk around wearing a shirt that outlines every awful thing you’ve done or things that were done to you? It makes […]

“I see the moon, the moon sees me…..”

Moon Heart

Have you noticed the moon the past few nights? It’s been beautiful. I love a full moon. It makes the night sky look so picturesque. One of my interns took the picture with the moon inside of the heart she drew on her window. It reminded me of a song I used to sing when […]
