Blessing or curse

I've been sitting, bitterly, reflecting on a post I saw a few days ago. It put into words what I'd been feeling for so long and didn't know how to say it. The tweet is linked above, but to quote it again: "400,000 people have died from COVID-19 and there are people who fix their [...]

all in a year

I just found this old draft. It's over three years old. Before I got married, I complained that no one told me the difficult parts of it; they only told me the happy parts. The parts that you see in the perfectly edited photos from the wedding day. None of the befores and afters. Well, [...]
