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

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

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
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…

Sometimes I connect to a song for its lyrics and its meaning, sometimes for its melody which touches something in me and makes me feel, or sometimes for its rhythm which makes me want to move. What connects you to a song? ~ FlorenceT
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…

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
Mood. Captivating lyrics, do you agree? https://youtu.be/dN44xpHjNxE "Cause when you love someone You open up your heart When you love someone You make room If you love someone And you're not afraid to lose 'em You'll probably never love someone like I do" ~ FlorenceT

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
So after many years, I am attending a church service… at St Paul’s Cathedral, London. Choral Evensong is a different experience, one that I didn’t get to attend often. When words are spoken at me, my intellectual and rational mind gets to work. But when worship and reverence is sung, the heart is called and … Continue reading Positive space
