Come enjoy the intimate and emotional – Powerlessness”! See if it crept up on you too!

Sarah Doughty

“Before I realized it,
you became my everything.”

But that’s the thing, I am powerless to help myself — I want you. Even though I know I shouldn’t. If for nothing else than to protect my heart. You see, it was everything about you that caught me off guard. It was more than your smile, or the sound of your unguarded laugh. It was more than the brilliance of your eyes, or the way you saw me. It was more than the way you carried yourself, or the gentleness in your touch. It was more than your mind — your creativity, ingenuity, and intelligence. It was everything. Before I realized it, you became my everything. And my heart was no longer mine.

On Becoming A Writer: Christine Ray

Please come and read Christine’s journey “On Becoming A Writer – Christine Ray”. I hope you will enjoy my friend’s and fellow Barista’s post!

Closing the Door [poem]

Come and enjoy this wonderful poem about the past and letting go – “Closing The Door”

Welcome to my world.


When you close the door on the past,

You move forward to the future,

You never know how long the peace will last,

Closing the door is hard,

Letting go of what you thought was your true path,

Part of that path will always linger,

Wondering what could have been,

But the future isn’t set,

It has yet to be seen.
