"I might be great tomorrow, but hopeless yesterday." This quote from The Pretenders, pretty much sums it up. I write a lot about depression and abuse. It has been very healing for me. I am a huge advocate for children to receive a great education, have loving parents and be heard. There is no excuse for neglect and abuse. We can all make a difference in children's lives.


A whisper of someone familiar
Weaves in and out of time

The echoed awareness of another’s presence…

Perhaps a remnant of extraordinary experience

A hope or dream of an unimagined existence

An unfelt touch

An unheard secret

An elusive shadow poised on the edge of consciousness

A lovers dance

Off beat

Out of step
