When you love someone, you make room

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 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

Positive space

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

A Star Is Born

What an amazing movie, and it's not just the stars. Big names like Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga do sell movies. As did Kris Kristofferson and Barbra Streisand in the previous production of the same name about 40 years ago (and I feel really old now 🙂 ). And there were 2 previous versions to … Continue reading A Star Is Born

Shallow – “A Star is Born”

My new favourite song...     Oh, these lyrics... listen/read and weep. Tell me somethin', girl Are you happy in this modern world? Or do you need more? Is there somethin' else you're searchin' for? I'm falling In all the good times I find myself Longin' for change And in the bad times I fear … Continue reading Shallow – “A Star is Born”

You say #Haiku 217

If you are interested in participating, go to RonovanWrites and check out his weekly challenge published every Monday - it comes with "how-to" if you are … Continue reading You say #Haiku 217

OM SO HUM

It's that time of the year... and demands on us heighten. This is a beautiful meditation to lighten the load for a little while, and to refresh your senses through the vibrational forces within. So Hum is a contemplative meditation which translates to "I am That". "That" meaning all creation and the universe.     … Continue reading OM SO HUM

There is peace here

There are moments when one is at peace driving along a busy road where sound is not noise where society is a welcome sight a reminder that life is simple. Saw a man sitting on a bench on a train platform teeming with life He had headphones on and a book to read cocooned within … Continue reading There is peace here
