But that isn't the case.
"House of the Discarded" is my house. It's a house full of cats and a dog that nobody wanted and at one time were tossed out like garbage. The title represents everything about my life, my home, those that I love, and love me back. The title represents some my darkest moments in which I've publically shared them.
Maybe that's why I relate to the cats in the shelter. Maybe that's why you can relate to me. We've all felt vulnerable, and discarded at some point in our lives.
Like the cats, dog and people I live with, I'm grateful for every day.
Thank you for taking the journey with me.
