Cap: my superhero, my superlove

I call my husband Cap. Or Captain. Or Captain Awesome. Or Captain America.

His name in my phone is Cap. Has been for years.  When I call it to his face he chuckles at me, like it's silly to him.

It started right immediately after I saw the movie Captain America.  I'll try to explain why, coherently and briefly.

Because throughout the entire movie, I kept thinking that the guy reminded me of someone.  Someone I knew well.  It wasn't until nearly the end when I looked over at my husband and realized that I was married to Steve Rogers or Captain America, whatever you want to call him.  The demeanor, the character, the bravery, the devastating jaw line...

So, yeah, I feel like I'm married to a superhero.  And I don't even feel bad about it.  He's humble, brilliant, strong and complex.  And the longer we're together and the better I get to know him, the more crazy in love with him I become.

Closer Everyday

The rough for IYH has been finished for a little more than a week.  I have so many ideas and plot lines for book 3 swirling through my head it's really all i can do to not get started on it.  I'm taking notes, building a playlist, trying desperately to not get distracted.

I need to finish LTF first.  I need to do the final edits and get it all put together.  Photo shoot on Tuesday for the cover. I really can't wait to immerse myself back into the Luke and Lenny storyline.  I've been away from them for so long, I definitely feel fresh going into it.

As such, I need to finish setting up the office upstairs.  So i guess i have a few more things to check off the list before I go completely crazy.

I'm really excited to complete it and get it out there.  I want to share it with y'all.  It's not the kind of story that will change the world but it has completely changed mine.  

Thinking of all the people who have come along side of me during this endeavor makes my heart happy.  Can't wait to write my thank you page.  Y'all have been an inspiration for me.

Poetry when chapters come slowly


this is a public domain photo, the credit is not to me.
forever it does
it comes down to one
one more breath
one more taste
one more question
one more race
one more pause
one more reason
one more lie
one more season
it beats us and shames us
hurts us and blames us
repeating it's line
short and concise


at the end of the day
when the walls fade away
all the remains
every painful refrain
