2017 Year End

2017 has been a lot of things to a lot of people. It’s been difficult and challenging, joyous and prosperous. 2017 encouraged people to reflect on who they are, who their family and friends are, and what they are willing to do to love, protect, and respect themselves and others.

It’s been scary and overwhelming at times. It’s been enlightening too.

I gave myself a chance this year, more so than any other time. I slowed down, I listened, I let people show me kindness and love. I connected with people.

I read incredible books and stories for which I am extremely thankful for.

This year I completed my first collection of short stories. Two Moons, a collection of transformation and possibility. I’m happy for this book’s coming. Release day is March 20th, 2018. Join me March 24th  at the Raleigh LGBT Center for a reading. You can preorder Two Moons straight from the publisher here.

I hope you all have the opportunity to take a little time for yourselves this holiday season. You deserve it. I’ll see you in 2018.

Love and Light.

Wait & See

The other night I dreamed I was five months pregnant. Sitting in the back of a cab, my huge belly pressed down on me while I looked at a severance check. The cabbie drove me around for a while. Then I stopped at a building, went inside to use the restroom, and stared at my reflection in a wide mirror.

When I woke up I reached for my belly. I was startled. I knew my dream wasn’t literal, but I felt so uneasy.

It’s a metaphor, I know. The severance check symbolism isn’t lost on me either. An ending leading to a beginning. Something is growing within me, around me, for me. What is it though? An opportunity? A thing? A person? An idea?

Guess I’ll have to wait and see. 😉
