There’s no such thing as the perfect woman

She is beautiful, smart, charismatic, ambitious, spontaneous and sexy in every imagined way. She is everything you have wanted in a woman which for a time was perplexing because progress was slow, if any. She says she is simple, you say she is the least simple woman you have ever known. She is complicated and […]

A Labor of Love

The first few months following my daughter’s birth were an absolute whirlwind. Primarily a result of my increasing insecurity, exacerbated by semi-crippling anxiety about whether or not I’d be the best parent I could possibly be for her. I worried that our bond would be negatively impacted if our legal relationship, especially, was to never […]

Deciphering A Purpose

Every day I reflect on the person I am becoming. A constant work in progress I used to call myself, but it’s more like a constantly evolving process in which I’m resolving my former doubt – living life as I know how. There are times when eliminating toxic things and people from my world take […]

Knowledge Evolves In Search of Truth

My quest for knowledge revolves around the search for truth, pure and unadulterated. Consequently, the quasi-knowledge I once held evolves while in search of its very distant cousin; truth. As a constant work in progress, I can’t help but acknowledge that I am a part of a fascinating experience where the obvious isn’t always what it seems, where reality and […]

Relationships: Cancer Changes Everything

(circa 1998) Where is my will Where has my spirit gone Flown away like a dove Released and peaceful Yet I am not pure All perfection a figment Always the occupant Of mortal thoughts Imperfect premises Must it be this way A constant contemplate… We went from being at peace to declaring war in a […]

Whatever Feels Right

I’ve written thousands of words dedicated to memories of you. How you swept through me like a tornado, left stormy thoughts encased in halos. Already knowing what the ending would be, but craving its heyday. For out of the chaos would come something beautiful. A warm sun, mid-day. The only one I could always count […]

Breast Cancer Blues

I have often been asked to write about particular topics, as those who know me know that my life has been an eventful one, and I usually have distinct knowledge of the subject matter in question. At last I have come to a turning point where I’ll be addressing subject matter that is not foreign […]

Who I Am

I am a hoarder; of secrets, thoughts, wants and desires. Of good books and journals. The way a beautiful woman’s smile – lightens a mood, a home, sparking memories that I’ll never forget. Long gone are meaningless sentiments that have often been disregarded. I’ve done nothing in my power to forget the past tense, ’cause of all the […]

First Things First

Regarding the title of this blog. Well, it’s stupid really. You know on those celebrity gossip blogs where the first person to leave a comment on a new story usually resorts to posting this one line of idiocy, “first!” as if there is some prize to be won or extra in depth knowledge to be […]

Unforgettable

Under normal circumstances, I would have refused her offer, but these were unusual circumstances and I was in no mood to refuse anything. Not from her. She did not know it yet, but I was never one for carrying on casual relationships. Not in any sense of the word. That is completely outside of my […]
