Lock & Key.

“It’s easier to clean house this time around, ya know.” “Totally.” “It’s like these pieces I’m selling and giving away have spirits that are attached to them that have run their course in my life. I don’t know why I hung on so long.” “Letting go isn’t easy. And hope is even harder to let…

Nature Jumps the Fence

~ Art & Poetry by, Elizabeth Levine  Life emerges in the space that you denied; The wilderness where thoughts run wild And nature jumps the fence … Where the deepest banks erode with pride And experience carves their path, As the colors bleed outside your lines Where everything makes sense. There’s a sketch upon the…

Where We Once Roamed.

This poem isn’t about religion. It’s more about the power within and standing up for that which you are called. I took a spiritual gifts course while living in in a beautiful cottage, nestled in Historic Chester County, where Wyeth taught and Washington took up his headquarters. Greatest time of my life. I had had…

RENDERED UNTAMED

I poured sand in my dreams with the sandman in tow. I formed characters too, in my lowest of lows. Today is the day that I met my maker, the shimmering lords of triumph and danger. I rejected them in time, all that I hoped and wished for was just waiting for its prime to…

IT ALL BEGINS AND ENDS WITH YOU

Over the course of the last 10 years here on this earth, I have unraveled at the seams to gain personal freedom and evolve on a very personal level. Some of that time was spent making grave mistakes, sometimes that time was spent making good ones, and sometimes that time was spent making none at all…

SONG FOR ZULA

Okay, I am obsessed with this song. Beauteous! I posted it like 5 times on here alone this past year. It just brings new meaning every time I listen and watch it! Tonight, I realized that it spoke to me about my addictions. Notice, in the video, this woman is beating at her chains with…

DROPPING THE IDEA OF A SOUL MATE

I am not sure when I dropped this idea of a soulmate or life partner. Some may assume that it is out of fear of never finding that someone, or because I was so badly humiliated in my search over the past years, or some would just assume it’s a selfish move. I don’t know….

ON THE CUSP

“Your time is coming. You’ve waited and hoped for a long time. It’s right around the corner. You are on the cusp. It’s time to push and work harder than ever. Don’t allow discouragement to infiltrate your thoughts. Stay positive, stay focused and stay determined. The greatest resistance comes just before the biggest moments of…

HEADS-UP

Most things I worry about never happen anyway – Lincoln landed on the legal beagle, Heads-Up this very day. Four score and seven months ago, this gal was riding with fear in tow – Now my plates have been restored, Tails Down – freedom finally scored.

Slapped Stigma in the Face!

It’s official. I have just entered an entirely new and dangerous level of freedom! Feeling very empowered today. Up and slapped stigma in the face today! One for the bipolar team! Check. One for the recovering alcoholics team. Check.
