Break until July

Hi everyone! Thank you so much for following this blog and for writing to support mental health! This blog will take a break until July, so look for us again then and meanwhile, write write write. Look to try to cultivate a regular writing practice. You don’t have to write every day, but don’t forget to give writing a shot when you want to express yourself and maybe another manner of expression won’t be as effective.

Have a wonderful few weeks! See you in July!

  1. I got to meet her
    For a moment
    In time
    Steadfast and determined
    To mark
    This broken world
    I added to the pain, fodder for words
    I’m sure a fruit fly now
    Shame of something bigger
    Ego check
    Had my own, retribution
    Think deeply
    In reverie and respect
    About Juarez
    And dolphins in the morning sea
    Desayuno included
    Will you ever


    1. Hi Susana,
      Hope you are doing well. Thank you for your poem note. I can’t believe how long it has been. Wishing you the best- always.
