Taking no prisoners. Including herself.

I keep composing in my head and then I sit down to write and I realize I have more gunk in my mind and fingers so I have to run the faucet. Freewrite. It’s taken me a really long time to settle in, sink down, come back. My god, I just don’t know how I’m […]

[Written 11/2010] Dear Kate, You go. You went. You left. All everyone has left (hyperbole). So, in your pose and out of your yoga you sought and found something which you know not but know yes that you needed. This is good. Perhaps you came also to not only grow your own chair pose, but […]

What just happened was wonderful. It was sweet. It made me smile. It was Kate, at her best, at her worst, at her HER, being her beautiful shining self. I looked at her, watched her, allowed her to just fill up my whole sphere, and I got to just enjoy her. My friend. I feel […]

Wahoo! I am alive and this whole blog has become a burial ground for freewrites. Oh, my dearest Not Keeping Score, how faithful you have been with your gleaming pixels and pages. We’ve been through a lot, haven’t we? Writing until 3am in the Tenderloin, prancing around San Francisco like some lithe pixie, meditational word-dumps […]

Unedited Freewrite with Kate: 09/21/10 Topic: Home is… Home is where the heart is. Home. That word sounds nice. Sounds warm and soft and sacred. I want to be there. This is not home. Well, I don’t know. It almost felt like home, felt like a place I could make home, or maybe was home […]
