these photos will not take themselves

Sorry I’ve been so absent lately. I’ve been struggling with finding inspiration for writing, and photography as well. I need something new to happen to shake things up. I just hope that the something new is a positive thing.

Love always,



you’re always in that spot
nestled sweetly


in the back of my mind where rhymes are made and
plans are laid
and best kept secrets stain the halls
a simple touch
our values fold
our hearts grow old
you’re always in that spot
with parted lips and steady hips
why can’t we find a quiet place
a warm embrace?
all the best kept secrets are hidden in the walls
why must you be so



Oh Happy Day!

I’ve got a lot of reasons to be happy,

If I’m going to be quite honest. I truly have no right to complain (ever)!

My cousin Sabrina challenged me to do this cool thing called #100HAPPYDAYS where you post a photo every day for 100 days of something that happened that made your day happy¬†one. I’m not one to turn down a chance to take photos of anything so…



I got my new truck! I’m so happy with it. I nicknamed her Nissan Prime, cuz you know, Transformers n’ stuff. I have an Autobot emblem in the poste somewhere between here and China to put on the¬†tailgate.

Follow along with my ‘happy days’ project on Tumblr with the hashtag #100HAPPYMJP.

As always –



Think. Jump.

I write the same story over and over
It’s a hell of a lie
I can’t find the sign
I’m waiting for that moment
The sun hits my face
There it is
