A peek outside the curtain.

Dear You,

I’ve spent years in my head. I’m way too comfortable there. I have a pillow fort and everything.

But living in your head means not really living. I think that’s why I take to reading and writing. I enjoy being a part of somebody else’s world so I don’t always have to confront my own.

Ericka Clay shared a quote
I can relate.
The Life She Was Given by Ellen Marie Wiseman
“Life was too big and too short and too important to talk about the lack of rain or the latest gossip. She wanted to know how people felt about themselves and one another, whether they were happy or sad. She wanted to know what made them feel loved and what hurt them to the core. She wanted to know about their past, how they got where they were, and their relationships with their mothers and fathers and siblings. She wanted to know if she was the only mixed-up person in the world who felt completely and utterly alone.”
