    Hey, Soos! #8

    Hey, Soos! I have a peculiar expression for you, so get ready. I feel like I don’t have skin. Of course, I don’t mean literally—my skin is one of the things keeping me together. I mean that emotionally, my skin protects me from nothing. Everything I come across touches me so deeply that at times…

    Hey, Soos! #7

    October 17, 2020 Hey, Soos! One day I hope to climb a mountain. Yes, a super random way to start out this entry, I know. Why would a born-and-raised Ohio girl want to climb a mountain? I guess there are a few reasons that I can think of off the top of my head. One,…

    Film Photography Adventures: Yellow Springs, OH

    During the past couple of years of my photography journey, I had fallen away from the use of film, but recently made an effort to get back into practicing it more and more. This past month I took a trip to Yellow Springs, OH and brought the film camera with me. Here are some of…

    Hey, Soos! #5

    October 13, 2020 Hey, Soos! Creativity is one of the most important things in my life. Without it, I’m not quite sure where I would be.

    Hey There Soos! #1

    Author’s Note: Over the past couple of years I have been on a kind of “spiritual journey” that has led me to grow deeper in my faith traditions and grow in my understanding of the world and people around me. For most of my life I have been a “Christian”, though I definitely have not…

    From Yin to Yang: A Letter to Tai Chi

    Dear Tai Chi,  I never expected that I would ever write a letter to you. First of all, you’re not an actual person. Second, I never really thought that you would play such a huge part in my life. And for the third (but maybe not the final) reason, many people looking at me would…

  • My Story of Survival

    My Story of Survival

    I like watching survival shows. Well, really just one show in particular: Naked and Afraid. Even though the participant’s nakedness is intriguing in its own special way, I’m much more interest in how these survivalist make it in the some of the most dangerous environments on Earth. They make their own shelter, hunt for food,…
