Time

In light of the horrific devastation that Irma is leaving in her wake, and to those who've survived her wrath, all I can say is this: I know you're not ready to hear this right now, but it will come.  The incredible things, the indescribable joy, the re-creation of self; those things are on your horizon.  Don't lose faith.  Hold onto hope.  And by all means, don't piss Journey off.  Don't stop believing.

Unbecoming

Some of us navigate through life with a strong sense of who we are, and who we want to be.  Others (like me), well, we get to re-create ourselves a few times before we we figure out exactly who - and what - we don't want to be.  We thought we had it figured out, but - surprise! - let's be something else, something different... something more.
