Imperfections

For the ones who neglect themselves, who prioritize others' wellbeing, remember. It is not a selfish act to work on your own selves. In and through your growth, you embody and model, inspire and en-courage others to their better selves. You are better able to be in relationships that serve and nurture. Food for thought … Continue reading Imperfections

Seeking #Haiku 271

Ronovan's weekly haiku challenge keeps me writing, compelling me to continue doing what I love even when I don't feel "inspired" or more so when I can't find the mental space. Haiku is an art, and not easy. But for an amateur like me, sometimes it is "easy enough" to create so I return time … Continue reading Seeking #Haiku 271

As you are…

In a world - where we look for differences before we accept, - where we only accept through our own lens, - where when our experiences cannot explain we deny, - where our fear in the unfamiliar overrides the delight of being curious, - where we shut down instead of open to new possibilities, - … Continue reading As you are…

Composition of your life

I am short in stature, petite as some would say politely. Compared to others around me, I have not had many opportunities in my life to look down at anything. Look at, yes. Look up, often :-). Over the years as my interest in photography increased, I learnt to look at things from different angles … Continue reading Composition of your life

How do you carry your life?

What do you focus on? What do I focus on? We often hear “pay attention and you will see”. Or the common refrains - “be conscious” and “be mindful”. Yet sometimes, not paying attention isn’t such a bad thing. “Let it be” and “ignorance is bliss” as the sayings go. Exhortations, sayings, contradictions…which is true? … Continue reading How do you carry your life?

Travelling on my own

I walked the streets of Rome and Florence mostly alone, spent a bit of time with colleagues (eating is a communal experience), and did a couple of tours with groups of strangers. Oddly it was eating alone that was (relatively) most uncomfortable. Probably because I wanted to order a selection of foods and realized there … Continue reading Travelling on my own

A little protest

I marveled at the opulence and grandeur of the place, the awe inspiring visage it presented … for the glory of God, as it is proclaimed. Oh, I am speaking of St Peter’s Cathedral which I visited recently in Rome. The direction to the Treasury of the cathedral took me into a dimly lit room, … Continue reading A little protest
