i'm so glad you're here.

Hi, I'm Casee Marie, keeper of many journals.  I write on a melting pot of subjects, from poetry and literature to living with severe anxiety.  Here I document my journey to finding solace in the storminess of life and self, whether through creation or observation.  Make yourself a cup of your preferred hot beverage and join me.

To be courageous, is not necessarily to go anywhere or do anything except to make conscious those things we already feel deeply and then to live through the unending vulnerabilities of those consequences.
— David Whyte

hope & harbor

a field guide to quiet courage

With courage you will dare to take risks, have the strength to be compassionate, and the wisdom to be humble. Courage is the foundation of integrity.

- Mark Twain
