We did not lose ourselves.

We did not lose ourselves because in each moment we were creating ourselves. Decades of life… every moment, every decision a reflection of that moment. With hindsight, we seek to tell of a past with reference to the past previous to that. We held a vision of ourselves in a previous past, and so that … Continue reading We did not lose ourselves.

Gasping for air… exhaling

I’ve been breathing a lot lately. The deep inhale, tell-my-self-everything-is-alright kind of breath. It’s something I’ve learnt over time to be effective to lower the blood pressure, to calm the heart rate, to calm the mind or so it seemed. And it made me look like a fish out of water, gasping for air. Perhaps … Continue reading Gasping for air… exhaling

Reason not to

Reason. I have relied on you for as long as I can remember. That which was not logical, that which could not be proven did not merit, had no value. Yet I must admit you are losing your grip. For a long while now I hear that calling, something within and without me; that something … Continue reading Reason not to

A birthday thought

Another year, and I notice a difference. No lingering doubt, no attending sorrow of what the day represented. Reclaiming gratitude for this day, as it was meant to be. Liberating. Acceptance of the passing years as I stand on solid ground, looking to a beautiful future together. There is much to be happy for, and … Continue reading A birthday thought

Making peace

Twelve days, and it’s probably one of the longest period of absence from my blog. And in this “quiet” period, I’ve been spending time doing the things I love and with the ones I love, all in service of a certain malaise that hit. Long moments of reflection and pondering, of re-establishing a solid ground … Continue reading Making peace

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

I lay to rest #writephoto

So it is I lay to rest amidst the green and nature's arms, to reignite the love once had but now dimmed in concrete jungle of greed and despair, temporary haven from the cries of need and wants; I now lay weary to the call of peace and my heart's grace. ~ FlorenceT   This … Continue reading I lay to rest #writephoto

Drifting: in Love and Happiness.

Time drifts into a path of mayhem without a destination. Setting my course on the waters of peace and calm. I turn my fate toward that which holds my compass true. There is no turning back once truth has been found.   Does your life fear reality in all it's frayed tapestry? Do your hours … Continue reading Drifting: in Love and Happiness.
