“I was terrified someone would see me. I was also terrified that no one would”

Introduction:

At the end of March, I had the chance to share the story of how I learnt to share my story.

In the past few years, I've been working hard to chase down, organise and share wo...

Today, I'm writing for the long ago, lost and lonely little version of Kate. She still exists somewhere inside me, because I don't let her go, even though her fear can sometimes become a part of my current fear.

But, I don't let her go because we both need each other....

 I used to dream about being able to go back, way way back, and use what I know now to change choices I’ve made. I realized I haven’t done that in a while. Recently I’ve had to think a lot about the past and as I think along alternate might-have-been timelines, I can s...

Feelin thankful for THANK YOUs!!!

Every time I move, I unpack my card wall first. It makes anywhere into a home. My card wall is a growing display of treasured words from treasured people. Seeing it instantly reminds me of everything I value– and that begins with everyo...

hey, did ya hear? A good thing happened!!! This week, the first ever “Minister Of Loneliness” was appointed in England. As an initial reaction to that title, this maybe sounds disheartening, and that’s a valid response since it’s true that this position has come from a...

On #letstalk day, I’m thinking about how we check in with, and care for each other. Having friends who’ve been patient with my endless mistakes has changed absolutely everything for me, and there aren’t enough days or ways to appreciate them.

When we’re told to tal...

* Content Warning*

This week I’ve been reminded again, of the power of words. Encountering stories & words you connect with can be an incredible way to gain perspective and feel a little less alone. Though words written to battle causes of suffering often have the power...

"🎶38, 38, 38 plaaaces... holllyyy shit" - (mostly from) Come From Away

This was the result of trying to make a visual list of the places I've lived in the last 2 yrs. It's a whole bunch of scribble-y buildings, but it's also reminded me that inside and in between each...

Yay for these lil dog dudes showing off all their bright colours today ❤️💛💙💜

You shouldn’t need bravery in order to celebrate love, but before nyc’s pride parade started today, it was police, ambulances and firetrucks that filled 5th ave. It was a grounding reminder...

Today happens to be a day that means a lot to me, it marks 2 years since a particularly challenging day. It wasn’t my worst day - I've had worse days before and after May 18th, 2015 - but it’s definitely a day that ended up altering how I live. I don't believe this is...

​I suppose if there's any good day to force words out of myself, it's today. Not because the world is suddenly more understanding and willing to listen for this one day, and not just to put in my 2 cents (or 5, of donation☺), but because this week I happened to be havi...

Those words seem to get said in that order, a lot. “Don't judge me” -- it's a phrase that can stick. It can linger and echo its effects into all we choose to do or say.

(...though, like, don't judge me for saying this...but-)


Whenever I write any words, I'm accompanied...
