15 things. 10 was not enough. 20 was too many.

the astoria-megler bridge. as i type the name of the bridge i say it to myself inside my head. it makes me laugh. i will never forget the name of this bridge.


it takes you from oregon into washington state. we drove over it. it needed to be done.

15 things:
emptiness.
and then fulfillment.
the natural way things roll. sometimes it's brutal. sometimes it's beautiful.
the ocean.
coca-cola.
sugar.
i realize coca-cola and sugar are basically the same thing. but seriously. if my body doesn't receive a dose of sugar in some form (along WITH a coke) every day...i'm hurtin. how did this addiction happen?
caffeine. yes. i'm back on the red bull.
peaceful sleep.
thinking outside yourself. NOT being self-absorbed. being aware of what's around you. the fuckin bigger picture.
laughter.
life. broken-in and blown-apart. it's powerful.
possibility.
realizing injustice is not being overcharged at the effin grocery store. how quickly we become small.
clarity.
wicked goodness.

I just stumbled on to your blog today (thanks to quirkygirl) and I just wanted to write something because I don't know how not to. Reading your blog is like looking into the sun, I have to squint and can only take small doses at a time. Thank you for putting yourself out there...I don't know what else to say that wouldn't possibly open healing wounds for you, but just know that a lot of love and empathy is being sent your way from a tiny town in rural Indiana...xoxo - A
