Poppy wants to live in a world where everyone's story matters, regardless of their income or way of life.

As a photographer, she's won ribbons at the county fair. As a spiritual seeker and writer, she's been featured in Jen Louden's The Life Organizer and once published an article at allthingsgirl.net.

When she's not writing or photographing her story, she can be found at her day job as a technology consultant, or at home snuggling her cats, or in the park, taking a walk with her husband.

Fall In Love

Fall In Love

Fall in love 
With taking care of yourself
Pull on compassion
Like a warm, soft coat
That you will wear to kick orange leaves in
Give yourself the joy
Of letting every day be picture day
With your best grin and
Hair spit-slicked down

Offer yourself another chance
At starting over and
Love yourself
Like potatoes love the frost.

How to play along

Because safety is a core value for me, I am asking that comments in this space avoid all the ugly things: shame, blame, judgement. I am asking that disagreement and discussion be polite, respectful, generous, and open to vulnerability.

Because community is healthy behavior, I welcome you to comment, to share your thoughts and responses and discuss this with empathy with me and with each other.
