dearest readers,

if it makes you feel better–
I don’t know you
and I love you just the same.

We’ve communicated only through words
typed on our screens,
exchanging LOLs and blogs,
exposing vulnerable parts of ourselves.

I know only what you want me to.
Still I think I’d consider you a friend,
one I wish I could treat to morning coffee
and sugared laughs
over scrawled Moleskine pages full
of words and lines, feelings and tears,
edits and re-edits.

It’s easy to share
when what I share
is appreciated.

And it’s easy to read
when what you write
is real.

and then there was this.

This place,
this feeling, this moment
is just right for
feeling worth everything.

This is going to take me somewhere
I forgot about.

and I’m just fine with

the August break.

I am just all about these little challenges, even though I don’t know if I can keep up with them. heh.

Anyway, in August, I am in on the August break along with Susannah Conway (of the Unravelling fame) and a flock of others.

A picture a day to capture summer (I’m going to aim for 5 days a week though). This should be fun!
