An Honest Question For You & Me

Letting go?

Is letting go of everything that I think I am the same as saying I am nothing? And in the nothingness....anything can be born. So it's the same as saying I am everything. If I could let go of everything I think I am . . . There would be no box to live in, no living fallacy. If I could let go of everything I thought I was . . . Maybe I could be free.

My Poetry " Keep Breathing"

"I am here locked deep within, what you might call your "Greater Skin."

At night I whisper softly in your ear, but a million other voices drown me..you cannot hear.

I am smothered by jealousy, might and fright. I have always been here, unblock my Light.

You and I are one in the same, though you think you are the Teacher and I need the train.

Through your mind I roam, looking for a spot, to lay down my wisdom & untie your knot.

I simply Am and have Always Been, through all of your journeys, your secret, dearest friend.

Lay down your worries, expectation and Fear, I will come ever closer & free your heart my Dear."

"There is nothing, nothing here can't you see
The left holds beauty . . . the right debree

In the middle spawned by light
Vast blackness holds it's own . . this my angels plight

My devil lies here inside, she is healthy and held
My angel looks and wonders over this unusual meld

These two dance . . . holding this me in place
No wrong no right, just me in space

This me will watch till death does this life part
Hoping the Devil my Angel will thwart

I say no wrong no right, my Soul tells me so
Though my little mind . . . she will not let these judgments go

Without them, my world spins no more
I will have sold out
My soul, the Universes whore

Who am I without them and does it matter so
My world would tumble though Truth says no

I fret not for me or a cause
My angel tells me 3 children won't tolerate this loss

I remain. Black & white hold me in place
My angel my devil are my space"

Lets Look, Shall We

A beautiful stranger wrote me, imparting kind thoughts on my behalf... A person he does not know. As I read his words, my heart sank. What hit me with a quickness was, "I'm not this woman, not deserving of such an honor in anyone's mind." The truth is, I'm sicker than I've been ever. I feel death around every corner and cherish the moments when he's not looming over me. Those precious few moments I have left of feeling normal. I don't necessarily feel 'sorry' for myself. I feel angry that I d... read more

Well, you know how that title finishes. .
. .I used to write, a lot. And now I don't.

I've noticed a heightening dischord within me when I don't write. I believe this, in whatever form be it pen and ink or type and font, to be my witness, something sacred in a place and time where not much else is.

Today I gave up. Everything. I kneeled with my head on the ground and exhaled the past 3 years of my life. You could call it "blowing a kiss to God" and exhaled everything in me that has... read more

We build our homes from within... Even though I never had one
Stamping our spirit into drywall and floor
I live in a Soul-less home, how empty am I?

Don't feel much like my fingerprint is on anything I touch
Don't feel much like my children feel my heart enough
So change..easy enough to suppose
Requires me, know me
Till then, we live in a Soul-less home

start digging, plant seeds
even if you forgot to label the seed mixture with a name
see what sprouts.. and hope

In This Stage of Life

Is different. Not really rainy or sunny .. I just see colors that I've never seen before. Over the past two days I've had flashes of Deja Vu. Not feelings of it. Attach an image of the current situation you're sitting in but fast forward it about 2 seconds. It's weird how the two overlap eachother when I don't understand why I'm seeing 2 seconds into the future of the current spot I'm in. It happens randomly, there's no rhyme or reason to it. I almost feel like I can ... read more

So I'm a bit ...uhhh, hammered right about now. I don't really care what I say or how anyone will interpret it when they read my words (not that anyone does anyways). . . I'm writing so I can look back on the part of me that really didn't give a shit..When usually, 98% of me does. I care WAYYYYYY too much. Which some might say is a blessing and other might frown upon as a curse... In my world, the river flows where it will and I know I can't control it. The river is bigger than my thoughts...... read more

When I listen I can't hear. And when I'm not listening, I catch pieces of the stuff I used to 'listen' for. But never when I'm expecting it and never in the way I want : ) I catch fragments when I'm never prepared for them. Fragments of understanding and Truth. But when I look, when I wait, they NEVER show themselves. These fragments. They fly by, in the blink of an eye, at the tip of my radar so that I catch a residual *trail* but never see the thing that flew right on by. I feel it's quick... read more

Most everything seems... well... 'off' lately. Like I could just fall off the grid altogether and never see me again. I'm seeing things right before I fall asleep and sometimes they create feelings strong enough to jolt me out of Euphoria, sometimes I slip past' em and sometimes they rear when I'm wide awake.

What things? Well that's hard to explain. Feeling things that I've never felt and don't have a word for. Feelings that are me, but not a me that I'm aware of at the current moment i... read more

I cannot know you here and now so I found you there and then
Time passes I will accept that, though I dream of you my friend

I walked alone in the day, through the bright rain on the road
Little to know friendships' seeds were being sewn

People looked from balconies at the girl in the shirt
Faces smiling, hearts remote
I walked along expecting nothing from another
Content enough with the earth for my Mother

Foot to foot I kept a beat looking for you, though I knew that not
Onl... read more

about me
I have three, wonderful, dynamic little boys, am in love with a man who I spent my life looking for and am searching anywhere I can to gain insight.. Literally In-sight :)

It's easy to live anothers truth. Looking inside to find your own is not. Also... This Life doesn't mean anything to me without at least one true friend to share it with. I'm lucky to have a fair share of those.

My Testimonials

December 29, 2006
Katrina is a kind and warm woman with a delightful insight into the world. I especially like the way she
cuts through the fog and gets right to the heart of things we discuss. While she posesses this keen
edge in her analytical mind, Katrina always keeps her heart in the equation and stays warm. Also,
I must make mention of the fact that her ethics are sans reproche. An honorable woman by my
measure. I am pleased to know her and call her dear friend.
