Quiet Dreams: Where I’ve Been

This blog is not dead, but has been on unplanned hiatus. Originally this was going to be a post regarding mental health, but I have reached a point that I am unable to talk about the topic. All I will say is months of stress with little respite has taken a toll on me and... Continue Reading →

Quiet Dreams: Upcoming Project

Here's hoping I do not have an anxiety attack for the third day in a row. This is not what I am posting about, though. I have selected a choice of poetry to edit to publish, hopefully by next Monday.
