It was worse than walking on eggshells,
at least then, I would have been able to move.

Eggshells might break
but they aren’t dangerous enough to hurt.
They might make a mess
but at least they can be swept up.



Bits & Bones is a collection of self reflection and expression. A mix of personal experiences, creative nonfiction and prose to move, break, and expose a soul.
