Nearly half of my life ago, my mother was diagnosed with Diabetes. It is a disease that many consider to be ‘easy.’ Easy to control, easy to maintain and often, mistake it for a ‘fat persons’ disease.

My skies are painted in two different shades: hard lessons learned, memories of childhood warm and safe–and the hope for tomorrow peeking out from behind the fronds of a palm.
As some of you may know and as some of you may not know–tomorrow evening I will be boarding a classy Grayhound bus and traveling from Florida all the way up to Alberta Canada. In Alberta rests the two possibly not sane people who decided to bring doom upon the earth by spawning me. I …
