Nature and Breathing

Posted by Kim on Saturday Sep 27, 2014 Under Photoetry

***Tru took the pics of our visit to Vereen Gardens AND his words are laced throughout this post. His thoughts and feelings about nature.

Nature and breathing.

They go hand in hand.


Leads us to the nowhere.

And to everywhere.

It takes us around to see beautiful things.




To be so free.

Unleashed and pure.

To live simply.


It’s imperfect.

It’s weird.

Yet the greatest artwork ever created.

A perfect masterpiece.


I need it.

It makes us more loveful.


It makes us more smileful.


It makes us more heartful.


Without it there’d be no life.

So go there.

And get lost in it.


Go there and come alive.

I love you too much.

Saturday, 7:20 PM – Rainbow on the Beach

Posted by Kim on Saturday Sep 20, 2014 Under Tru Moments

The moment.

Driving home from Grammy and Poppy’s house along the boulevard and I spot a rainbow. Daddy goes to turn on our street and I say, “No! Go to the beach access.” He hesitates and I point straight ahead.



We’re like, “Look at the rainbow! Isn’t it gorgeous!”

(It was really glowing. Almost neon. The pic doesn’t do it justice!)

And then you’re like, “Let’s go on the beach!”

We run onto the sand and then we look south and we’re like, “Whoa. Look at the sky!”


And then you’re all like, “I’m getting in the water!”

And so you did.

Clothes and all.

The end.

I love you too much!

A Fire Like Never Before

Posted by Kim on Sunday Sep 14, 2014 Under Dear Tru

This is one of those posts that has been blowing through my head for 5 years. A spark of an idea, but no direction to go with it. It’s just a burning feeling that swells up and I want to get it out, but nothing. It simmers down before I can make any real sense of it. This has been a reoccurring phenomenon since you were born. I’m wrestling it today. I’m gonna bring it to fruition even if it’s the worst piece of writing I’ve ever written. Here we go.

There’s a story you like for me to tell you again and again. “Tell me about when I was born mama.” This usually happens as we are driving down highway 31. Past the crispy looking trees and foliage that are now growing more dense. You know the connection.

It was the end of April 2009. You were due any day and North Myrtle Beach was on fire. A fire like never before. It burned through neighborhoods and jumped highways. It was burning up everything in it’s path. People were fleeing their homes for safety.

Our world was smothered in a big cloud of smoke. It was hard to breathe outside without a little coughing and ashes were swirling around in the air like black snowflakes. The forest burned. What once was full of trees, was now bare.




A midst all of this, we fled our home to go to Loris Hospital. As I wait to meet you, the world outside is ablaze. Little did I know, my own world was about to ignite. My heart was about to be turned on and fueled like never before. Just like the forest that is now growing more full, so is my heart. There’s new energy. A new landscape. And new love. A fire rejuvenated the forest while a boy rejuvenated my life.




Thank you for adding the spark every day to my life and to my heart.

I love you too much!
