First post for 2020... and a haiku. Living in a mountainous region of Australia impacted by fires, you will appreciate where my mind was when I saw the prompt words, "ashes" and "cocoon". And here is a link to sites which you can make donations to firefighters and victims of the Australian fire.   ashes … Continue reading Ashes #Haiku 286

Heartbreak

Only the songs 🙂  and by an artiste I enjoy listening to...from his latest album "oh my messy mind". Somehow this song is fittingly depressing.   and this, ah I'm a sucker for heartbreak songs...   Sometimes we need to tap into these emotions, they make us who we are. ~ FlorenceT   © 2019 … Continue reading Heartbreak

Songs of your life

What fun 🙂 In Ronovan's post, there is a link to a page where you can "find" the #1 hit during the week of your birth...  I couldn't resist. And... well, maybe our lives end up reflecting the philosophy of the top charted song of the week we were born in? Alright, I wasn't born … Continue reading Songs of your life

Music Taste

I have been listening to music and watching a lot of music videos lately, more so than usual. The wonder(?) of AI on social media platform meant I was recommended more music of the genres that I liked. And as I kept following those recommendations, more of the same would arrive. I “discovered” artists I … Continue reading Music Taste

Love, this weekend

A mellow weekend watching the rain falling outside my window, quiet moments of contemplation and conversation with myself, returning to ground with the feels ... and love and new-ish music. Enjoy!   I've seen much more than most Much less than some Took a while to give up a ghost Thought it'd never come I … Continue reading Love, this weekend

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…

Live your life…

It's the weekend... something bop-py to listen to, and perhaps a little reminder? But first, the lyrics... and enjoy!   It's everyone I mean no exceptions I want them to know 君に言いたい Those who are young And those who were once young I want them to know 君に言いたい Chorus If you ever feel so small … Continue reading Live your life…

Coming out…to a whole new world

If you are thinking this is about the newly-released Disney movie “Aladdin” then my response is maybe… as I have no idea where this post is headed, yet. But I have been exploring a whole new world in recent months. I have been taken on a magical ride by a young person; magical because it … Continue reading Coming out…to a whole new world

I am

This is a song from the "Suddenly Seventeen" movie soundtrack. The Chinese lyrics are poetic and nostalgic! I hope you get the gist from my less-than-poetic translation :-).   https://youtu.be/Tv-3nwFVchM 黑夜而闪耀 我                  Shining in the night, I am 流云却不走 我                  Passing clouds won’t overwhelm me, I am 转眼就开花 我                  Blooming in a blink of an … Continue reading I am
