I feel like a vampire today so I decided to take a break from work and spend some time reading in my hammock. Going to make a concerted effort to try and not fall asleep despite being up all night. 😪😅
My neighbors are clearing their ground and burning branches so it smells like heaven outside.
#throwbackthursday to this clip of my heart actually breaking ❤️💔❤️ Somebody Else's Sky by @jessica_hawkins • Book Two •
If I closed my eyes, I could still see them—all blonde sunshine, ocean-blue eyes, and long limbs. The glint of Lake’s gold bracelet. Pink cotton candy on Tiffany’s tongue. My scenery may have changed from heaven to hell, but some things never would: my struggle to do right by both sisters. To let Lake soar. To lift Tiffany up. The sacrifices I made for them, I made willingly.
A better man would’ve walked away by now, but I never claimed to be any good. I only promised myself I’d keep enough distance. If I’d learned one thing from my past, it was that love came in different forms. You could love passionately, hurt deep, die young. Or you could provide the kind of firm, steady support someone else could lean on.
Lake was everything I wanted, and nothing I could ever have. I was nobody before I knew her and a criminal after. The way to love her was to let her shine—even if it would be for somebody else.

It is with great honor and a heart full of joy that I am happy to announce that I am officially published! For years I have been writing, always aspiring to have a book of my own out there for the world to see. This dream I have finally made come true! This of course will hopefully be just the first of many books to come and this is just the first step forward for my writing. I want to thank the talented @lisj18 for the amazing artwork she contributed for the cover and through out the book itself. I also want to thank @paulieherb for waking me up today with a text showing the first purchase of my book (his purchase of course) even before I knew it had been approved. Also thank all of you for your continued support and spreading the word. Let me know what you think of it if you pick up a copy. It is now available on Amazon in paperback and ebook format! #mgboatwright#thebeautyindarkness#amazon#paperback#ebook#firstpublishedbook#poetry#writing#dreamcometrue
Just like almonds, each and every one of us has our own idiosyncrasies, imperfections and eccentric qualities. Some are ridged, others chipped off and yet others a lustrous, golden-brown. But isn't it those very differences that make us SPECIAL? Embrace what makes you "YOU" and keep that in mind while reading "An Almond All Alone", available on Amazon! Ps do tell your friends and family about this lighthearted tale and its indelible message, and of course, I'd love it if you followed my account!!!
