When depression, grief or fear have a hold on your heart it is comforting to visit a place that reminds you that you are not alone. Like a blackout, circumstances can be disorienting and this can add to the struggle. Flashlight Batteries is a poetry blog that offers hope and a mirror for tough transitions. It is dedicated to all who struggle and don’t believe that anyone else could possibly feel the same way.
I am a lover of questions, hope rebel and a safe place to land. Writing poetry has given me a way to touch other’s lives and make connections I never dreamed could happen. Taking photos reminds me to see my everyday life with new eyes. Through this blog I give to you the gift of myself, my words and my photos.
Light is created through connection. Please share your comments and your journey. Thank you for being a part of mine.
The poem titled Flashlight Batteries is the first poem I wrote for this blog.
With a heart full of gratitude,
