Living in the Wrong Paradise (part 3)

Today July 8th, I craved peace but peace did not come. My truth was filled with visions, feelings, and hopes that were as dark as the night on a back country road in the deepest woods of Georgia. This darkness that reminded me of the late night nightmares that haunted my spirit and soul could not be identified.

Was it the turmoil that spilled over into the streets of our nation?

Or was it the aches, pains, and weariness that is running through my bones?

My truth was spilling over the edge of time running into my crystal blue water. I sit still craving the one thing that this world does not understand.

Today, I am still living in the wrong paradise.

As a country girl growing up shy in Georgia, sharing my emotions was something that I did not do. I was a beautifully sun-kissed child that always felt loved but out of place. As I got older and life sent me through many roads both up and down, I decided I needed an outlet to put the many growing emotions and opinions from both the past and the present into perspective… so I began expressing through writing and photography. My idea of writing is simple and heartfelt. I do not consider my writing to be classified as poetry or that of a highly skilled writer but just words that are my own. So I really hope you enjoy my blogs, storytelling, and photography. As you enjoy this journey with me, I really hope you are inspired and motivated.
