the soul house…

August 8, 2009


I’m here. It’s true, there are times when you announce to the world who and where you are for whoever cares or is even listening. No, scratch that, you announce it for yourself. Then you stand around and look at everything around you and smile, maybe cry. Sometimes it feels liberating and thrilling, other times heavy and intense.

Today though, it feels like home and there are so many people every where I turn, in every room  in this soul house of mine. There are mothers in the kitchen with a warm meal and a kind word, fathers in the den handing me a twenty and a hug, there are sisters sitting on my bed helping me pick out the perfect dress, brothers filling my ipod with best mix ever, there are kids in the basement waiting to dance to music that is on way too loud…it is the best place, let me tell you. I may never leave.

So today, from this house of mine, hear me yell out the window: Here I am!…

Thank you for caring about me, reading this blog, visiting my soul house, giving me the encouragement to claim all the parts of who I am…
