Stephen King on Addiction

I am reading “Stephen King On Writing,” a part memoir and lessons for writers. While I cherish the lessons on writing, his definition of addiction is too good to pass up. His addictions were many; however, regardless of the addiction, you will find the core of the pull is the same. About his alcohol addiction:“How... Continue Reading →

Born for Independent Resilience

Even Concrete Cracks

This was the reality check I was given as I found myself in a puddle of tears. "Even concrete cracks" is the resolve to understanding why even the strongest of the strong humans crack. In this case it was me, cracked wide open. While the release is necessary the reality causes as much reeling as... Continue Reading →

Sometimes it speaks to me…

I am a lover of music unlike anyone else I know. That is not to say that others do not love music or are not fanatics but it seems that my connection is more personal, more bloodline than energy. I hear songs and they immediately take me right back to the place I was when... Continue Reading →
