I am a 44 year old writer and poet that just published my first collection of poetry called Greylight. I live by 3 simple rules everyday, live, laugh, love. I currently live in Norway with my husband and our dog. I adore people watching and seeing how others see the city I now live in. I hope you enjoy reading and if you ever have any feedback all is welcome.

Christmas movies

A few weeks ago I got some really upsetting news from a close friend & had to cancel a trip. That weekend I began watching Hallmark movies ad nauseum. It was the only thing that kept me from crying & it doesn’t require a ton of concentration or thinking. I haven’t been in the Christmas…

So, a few weeks ago a hostile & aggro woman accused me of being something I am not & she did so by publicly humiliating me on a city bus. She did so in the span of 2.5 minutes but the effect has been lasting for me anyway. I now choose to walk 12 minutes…
