The writer hard at work. Perks of being your own boss - taking your laptop to a bar and enjoying a glass of #Cabernet in the middle of the afternoon.

On this day before the #wintersolstice that has brought a blanket of snow, my #fbf takes me to early summer and my last Sin City Fetish Night with my girl, Cara. Ahhh summer (and Cara), how I miss thee.

Biffy and Alpha after a wonderful catch up involving talk on love, career, friendship, survival and living lives of passion. Walked away like a spoiled girl with a bag full of Christmas prezzies too. You’re a beautiful heart. Love you, honey xoxo

The Phoenix is a long-lived bird that is cyclically regenerated or reborn.  Associated with the sun, a Phoenix obtains new life by rising from the ashes of its predecessor.
This life of mine has had times of such struggle and tragedy, it’s a wonder I didn’t succumb somewhere along the way.  There were many times where it came close to taking me down.  But it didn’t.  I pushed through that pain and trauma because I knew there was more for me on the other side.
In the last 6 months, I have dealt with all the remaining pain from my past and have reached this incredible place of feeling truly self-actualized.  I’m on the ladder of enlightenment and it’s from letting things go, wanting to move forward, upward, onward.  My NEED and desire to explore my place in this world and to make the most of my journey, is what has allowed me to rise up….rise up from the ashes of my predecessor - that is, the me and the life that was holding me back.
