the story teller

On a record-breaking fiery day in early July, I came to the realization that I have a story to tell.

I will not take it to my grave. I’ll slit my wrist and let the words gush from my veins. I won’t stop until my body is bone dry. Until journals are busting at the seams. And cocktail napkins are wet with fresh ink. Until notebooks are overstuffed and bloated. And every last pencil is worn down to just a nub.

And this story, my story, is heard.
