Where I've Been

I've been away from Denali for the past couple of months. Sometimes, you just have to get away and recharge. Since my kind doesn't sleep, it is the best way to rid ourselves of our demons. Katie was with me for awhile, but then she had things to do, so she returned, while I stayed behind.

As I sit in my chambers, my mind is forced back to one of the select few memories I still have of my short human life.

The moments leading up to it have long…

8.5 Months Old

I went into Aerie's room this morning to find her standing in her crib with a sunshiny grin on her face that completely melted my heart. How can it be she's 8.5 months old…

51 Is So Much Fun

Wow. Who knew I'd be turning fifty one years old while expecting my 4th child? I surely didn't see that one coming. I guess I did see it coming but it just didn't sink in until…

thoughts

 A Dream Is Defined As A Succession Of Images, Thoughts, Or Emotions Passing Through The Mind During A State Of Unconsciousness. This Was Otherwise Known As Sleep.
