The Shared Place

Painful reality, a void expanding. Panic spreading, tingling. Numbness in her hands. Chaotic thoughts dwelling on society’s cruel hatred. Practiced self-care took over, saved her, even when thought was lost. So many likeminded, separated, alone. Might clarity through story turn … Continue reading
