hey look ma
I made it
I think I’m okay
ready to let go

missed connection
under your scars
you’re somebody else


Day 100 of 100 of a wonderful challenge that combined my love for music and my desire that some day I will write yet again. It seems fitting to end it with a collage made from music that topped the charts in 2019 that in a big way signified the end of a very particular era when a few big dreams crashed and burned and for a while nothing really mattered to me anymore. However, my heart and soul may have been shattered, but my spirit was far from defeated. Slowly but surely I started rising from the ashes of defeat and with each step I grew stronger and stronger. Looking back I find it quite shocking to remember how many times I wanted to cease to be during the so called great love era because a lot of times that is how I felt. These days I find life to be precious and exciting. Every breath I take matters just like every moment I get to life fully does. Darkness may be my perpetual passenger and that is perfectly fine. I am who I am, however, that doesn’t mean I am not striving to let in more light as well as to evolve into a better human.

Big love to all that jumped on board during this journey. Your support and care mean a lot. Thank you beyond.

Now, 2021

    1. Thank you, wondrous sister! It saddened me a bit to come to an end of the challenge. To be able to explore music, words, and piece together blitz poetry that in some way represented a certain year and at time even an era, it’s a blessing for sure. Just like having a privilege of reading your prose and poetry. You inspire beyond. Perhaps more importantly though – your brilliant word and thought weaving helped me to overcome a few obstacles that left me stuck for quite some time. Thank you for being here and for existing. It truly is making the world a better place. Much love. Always. ❤️❤️❤️

  2. We are all touched by our dark passenger, but that is all they are, a passenger and nothing more. We shed and sheath, we buckle and stand, we are unique yet all the same. A wondrous journey that has not just begun, but continues to happen on a second by second journey. Thanks for sharing such a journey with us all, and now, let us look toward that mountain in the distance and climb it as always, together. 👍
