A Missed Migration

A Missed Migration

I first noticed them while at a stop light. Clustered together, their wings floated frivolously in the air, causing a constant distraction between my eyes and the road. From the drivers seat of my car, staring up through dirty windshields, I tried to analyze what kind of insects they were. They were small and brown. [...]

Prepping For Loneliness

Prepping For Loneliness

There is a blogger that I have been following for some time now. I came across her years ago when she was featured on another website created to help and encourage women while in the midst of their singleness.

When Hope Hurts

When Hope Hurts
