Happy New Year all! This is my first blog post of 2020; a new decade has risen. I feel fresh, almost as if a new life has been breathed into me. Cliche, yet so true! I have high hopes for this year.

2019 was incredible, well, because I got engaged to the love of my life! But something about 2020 tells me there is more personal growth on the horizon. I am prepared for that, knowing that most growth happens in accordance with challenges, and welcome it with open arms.

I hope everyone feels ready to take on the world in 2020. Let’s do this. 🙂

Lens

Adjust your lens sweet child

Sink into the night

Adjust your lens sweet child

Life can be a fright

Adjust your lens sweet child

Step to the light

Adjust your lens sweet child

You will be alright.

Lancaster Nights

By: Angela Prendergast

Have I told you?

Those Lancaster nights changed me.

The boy in the red mustang —

You knew I grew to hate that car —

Proved more interesting

than stories

of running through cemeteries

to escape trouble

 

A well-behaved, class act

disguised under flat brim hats and endless “swagger”

A sweet smile;

a flood light in the rain

More thrilling than nights spent in deafening, crowded corners of the dullest, dingy downtown bars.

 

You, by far, were my biggest jump to safety–

Colliding with expectations and dreams

Becoming reality

Thank you for remaining steady in my most uncertain moments.

 

-Your Angel.
