Letters to Myself

I'm a journal-er.  Yes, I'm a writer, so it would make sense that I journal.  But I really journal.  Lots.  And most of that never sees the light of day.  It's the writing I know I'm not gonna share with anyone else, and therefore, I can be free to write anything.  Anything.  (Sidenote:  When I … Continue reading Letters to Myself

An Open Letter to My Single Friends

Dear Lovely Single Pals, I apologize if I've been annoying at all lately.  I haven't been myself.  Well, I've been myself.  But not the myself that I'm--or you--are used to.  I've been the "dating someone....oh, now I'm in a relationship all of a sudden" version of myself.  And I'm not used to this version.  I'd … Continue reading An Open Letter to My Single Friends

An Open Letter to My Third Metatarsal

Dearest Third Metatarsal (on my right foot): Firstly I would like to apologize for having not been fully acquainted with you before the incident.  You seem like such a fantastic metatarsal, and if it's any consolation, I've made much more of an effort to befriend not just you but your familiar on the left foot … Continue reading An Open Letter to My Third Metatarsal
