I am Led by Light

The following means a lot to me, but I will tell it in the shortest way possible… When I was 5 years old, my father committed suicide. I don’t often discuss this occurrence, but as I have grown older, I have come to realize that his decision has […]

Does intent matter?

It was recently inferred by someone that because I gave a man a compliment on his clothes, he and I were having an affair. What didn’t matter in this situation was my intent. I would never have an affair with anyone except Tim (who I’ve been with forever and is my other half), and why should they care anyway? Don’t they have their own lives to focus on?

Wolf’s Rain Inspired

I was first introduced to Wolf’s Rain in 2008 and became enraptured by it. I loved the characters and their dynamic and the story was so touching and so heart-wrenching at times that I was brought to tears – sometimes slow and sweet sometimes hard and desperate. Always, […]
