Fond Memories | Musings of a Black Female Adoptee


A dock on a lake will always be my safe space for contemplating life. 

In the summers when the sun would sear my skin I would jump in to cool off. Floating on my back listening to my breathing swish in and out. Letting the water calm me and show me how alive I was.

I especially love the lake at sunset. The colors restored the brightness to my soul preparing for what the next day would bring.

These are fond memories grasped in a time a chaos.
