Something strange has happened this week. A couple months ago, I’d broken apart into a million jagged pieces. And then I kind of…. stayed apart in a million pieces.

And I didn’t want toContinue reading “healing pains”
Query update: Sorry. Nothing yet. I know I said soon– it’s coming. I promise. OMG, you guys. Yesterday, I went to a restaurant. Like, a real restaurant, with people and tables and menus. Inside the restaurant, even. And get this: I didn’t wear a mask. I looked around, and none of the other customers wereContinue reading “opening up”
Query update: No update yet. Things are lightening up soon, though. Soon, friends. Soon. I recently asked my friend to do a Tarot reading for me.
