I had an untamed hair. It was all over the place. I brushed it too much. Shampooed the wrong products. Damaged with heat. Every possible torture I made that could have been prevented if only I knew what to do with it. Do I regret it? No. But now, I can do better. My hair… More Embrace

Looking Back

There were times I stumbled down. Long before help came to brush off the dust, I didn’t think living was fun. It was challenging. If the mind wins over the heart, it’s game over. There were times my songs drew back. Long before a fiery spirit tried to ignite my unlit soul, the path was… More Looking Back


My problem is I am afraid of the word NO. If you told me to do something I know I could, I volunteer to have the work. Sometimes, I forgot I am only human and do what it needs to be done. BUT THAT IS WRONG! You cannot take everything and then be someone with… More Tied

Afternoon Commute

I have an appointment this morning. But I needed to ride my bike. As bad as it goes, I returned home still walking.
