Good-Bye Is Never Easy

Letting go has always been hard for me.  I usually know for some time that it’s time to move on, yet I hold on waiting to see if I’m wrong.  I don’t know why I haven’t learned to listen to my gutt.  It’s always the same; in the end, I wonder why I didn’t do…

Firestorm

My view of the world is full of smoke and ashes.  The wildfires in BC have full cities evacuated, and over 40,000 of them have come to our city for refuge.  The air is thick with smoke, and everyone is feeling the stress of the situation.  I haven’t written in over a week because I’ve…
