Photo Friday- Write Like You’re Running Out of Time

March 17, 2017 / 0 Comments

I am a HUGE fan of the musical Hamilton. There’s a line that is repeated throughout the score: “Why do you write like you’re running out of time?” Alexander Hamilton kept immaculate records and diaries and used the written word to compel others to see his viewpoint. I may not be writing to fight for the birth of our country, but lately I feel like I’ve been writing like I’m running out of time. And this is a good thing! I’ve had multiple projects come my way where I will have different platforms to not only educate but share other people’s stories. I’ve been blown away by the willingness to open up about the difficulties of living with migraine. Each story is unique, but all sound so familiar too. I can’t wait to share this project with you.

This week, I got to watch one of my oldest and dearest friends compete on American Ninja Warrior!

Being 3,000 miles across the country when I heard of my dear friend’s passing last week has been extremely hard on me. I’ll return back east in a couple of weeks where we will gather to celebrate his life. Ross struggled with drug addiction, in the end losing the battle. I’ve felt so isolated from my close knit group of friends while I’ve grieved his loss. I just want to squeeze his two boys and be there for my best friend who is handling this difficult situation with such grace and strength.

Photo Friday- Fluorescent Lighting=Hell

I found this is a cute little store in Philly. Truer words never spoken. When I was still working in an office, they had to disable the automatic lighting and I brought in lamps. Although everyone with migraine disease has the legal right to ask for workplace accommodations for their condition, not every company is as understanding. I was lucky to have an office with no window. It’s harder to make such changes of fluorescent lighting out in cubeville.
