Bio
I was born when Halley’s Comet last appeared overhead and named accordingly. Since then, I've become a writer, artist, and columnist. In addition to Open Salon, my work appears frequently in The Huffington Post, All Things Healing, Gender Across Borders: A Global Feminist Blog, and several other publications. I blog daily at my site HayleysComments.com I recently published my first book, "I Know Why They Call a Shell a Shell." The book is about domestic violence, a topic that I am very vocal about. It chronicles my journey away from tumultuous love affairs by weaving stories of her past with stories from literature, music, and visual art of both modern and classical significance.

green mountains, now hidden, snow

capped ?

Meant to Be?

If something is meant to be will it happen? I imagine this is a very ancient question- in fact, right now I am picturing Socrates in a toga pondering this one. Does anybody know for sure? We can only take examples from our lives and string them together to… Read full post »

Tales of Intuition

 It was not unusual for me to see the future- well maybe not the future so much as the present that I didn't have physical access to. It was March 12, 2011, late at night or early in the morning, maybe. I slept soundly in my bed…

Don't Go Breakin' Your Heart

 

For all the times somebody broke my heart, I've broken my heart three times over. What am I talking about you ask? Coveting. I should've paid attention in Sunday school, as I'm pretty sure there is a Commandment against this. Coveting is worse than… Read full post »

Life is difficult sometimes. Is it just me....or is it true that when things feel as if they couldn't get any worse something (or several somethings) else goes wrong? I am not joking when I've said the rejection letters I've received from graduate school programs and…

Art School Drop Out

Art school was everything it was expected to be; full of all the most eccentric-self-indulgent weirdos that one could stomach. I tended to be more conservative in dress, aside from the glitter. I loved sparkles but I was still quieter than the general art school population. I had… Read full post »

Suicide Watch

If you have ever had someone you care about attempt or even commit suicide, you know how terrible the ordeal can be. It is worse than a regular death. There is little closure. It is a situation where no one ever truly wins and those left behind spend the rest of… Read full post »
