How We Sleep At Night: A Mother’s Memoir by Sara Cunningham CreateSpace Independent Publishing, Oct 2014 144 pages I came out to my mom a few years ago. She appeared pretty stoic when I broke the news to her, and thankfully she accepted me just as I am. Occasionally I can’t help but wonder what might have gone through her mind. Was she just as calm inside...

If I Were Wrong

Scribbled in my makeshift journal during the wee hours of one morning.   If I were wrong; You would salute me An upright Christian man. If I were wrong; A wife by my side Pitter-patter of tiny feet.

It’s 6:15 AM. Usually I’d be fast asleep by now, but today I’m sitting in front of my computer typing this. Kinda reminds myself of Doogie Howser typing his diary entry at the end of an episode.
