Musings Out Loud
Musings Out Loud
Anna Burgess Yang
I Have to Be Raw
I'm not reciting from a script: I'm reliving my experience.
A Month of Sickness and Writing
I'm exhausted. The most tired I've been in a long time.
Hiding From the News
I live this way because I don't have a choice.
A Magical Day
Cheers to the next 40.
The Universe Aligned Today
A momentous day indeed.
The Writing That's Missing
Lately I've been thinking about the words I didn't write.
Her Birthday This Year
My body needed a release.
Missing and Heartbroken
This constant state of limbo is incredibly hard.
And Now Six
Sometimes the choice not to continue results in grief.
A Lifetime of Creative Work
I need to find that balance between pushing myself and still enjoying the process.
We Need Better Care
Stillbirth rates are high in the U.S. We know the risk factors and new legislation aims to address them.
The Quality of Air
The air quality in our area has improved and is mostly back to normal. But it feels like a foreshadowing of things to come.
Conversations in a Bathtub
Talking to my rainbow baby about her sisters.
The Winding Journey of Friendship
Friendships are wonderful and hard.
Unsure of What Comes Next
That's the thing about trauma. It makes you afraid and constantly think of worst-case scenarios.
Sad That It's Not Sad
We focus so much on mourning.
A Tattoo of Memories
Seven hours of pain later, I have a new tattoo.
A Missed Opportunity
Is it worth giving up a potentially uncomfortable moment for so many moments of regret later?
Consistent and Persistent
I'm not going anywhere.
My screams are combined with a sobering numbness.
Words in the World
I feel like I've found what I'm meant to be doing.
The Best Birthday
I was trying to make up for three years of missed birthday joys.
The school may do everything right and it may still not be enough to keep the kids safe.
The Ups and Downs of a Week
Last weekend, I had a nightmare.
It Has Been Seven Years
I write about my pain to let other women know that they're not alone.
