When I started this blog, I wanted to express my thoughts, opinions, poetry and anything else I saw fit to write about. I came at this somewhat therapeutically, mixed with creativity and always honest. I have been writing for the better part of 20 years, poetry, short stories, I have even attempted a novel or […]

Let’s Talk

Depression, anxiety, turmoil looks different on everyone. Everyone’s grass looks greener when you think you only have dirt. Many think it’s easier to have these depressed people fit into pre-cut boxes instead of dealing with a case by case basis. I have spoken of my static and depression briefly before.
