On Mountains and Dumping that Dude

July 5, 2011

My camera is not cooperating. I can’t upload a single photo from Montana. My iPhoto keeps crashing, maybe because I took so many? These pictures from Uncle Ez will do until then.

The end (again)

June 15, 2011

Trust must come before love and love can’t survive without trust. I felt absolutely certain I could love him again. I tried to forget. I felt that I could conquer the past. But I couldn’t. And something was missing. The trust? The original love we had? I wasn’t sure, but being so unsure, standing on [...]

From Break Up Land

January 6, 2011
