Working On Her Birthday
I was hit particularly hard this year.
A Place of My Own
I need a "happy place" for writing.
Unfocused Yoga Practice
My mind wandered throughout my hot yoga class.
A Conversation With My Rainbow Baby
She's the one we tried so hard to bring into the world.
A Story Between Grief and Now
We'll see what the new year brings.
I Played a Song and Cried
In the present, the tears flowed.
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 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.

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.
