“You’ve got a nice set-up here,” he said walking in. “Yes, I do spend quite a bit of time here, so it’s got to be comfortable,” I said. He gently touched the ornaments displayed, reading the spines of books which caught his attention. It is not often we get these relaxed times together, a sense… Continue reading These things
It's been a while, and compelled to write a poem today. 🙂 Prompt word 'wind' for the 'b' line, as supplied by Ronovan Write's weekly prompt. What 'b' line? Check this out here. Time runs away, or so they say, run child, you must run like the wind; chase your dreams, don’t stop till… Continue reading Breathe in deep
Do you know what you don’t want? Well, I thought I did. Expectations and norms rule many lives. The “shoulds” of the world seep into our veins and we just are, unquestioningly. We perform mother or father as many have before us and amongst us. We go to work to cement our identity of worth… Continue reading Self-sabotage can be good

Been listening to Rag'n'Bone Man... and loving the soulful voice. Hope you enjoy! ~ FlorenceT
I have been through a couple of stressful weeks. And as they wind down and with this opportunity to sit back and reflect, I realise there are many things for which I am grateful. Two are specific to this tiny part of blogosphere I occupy. Firstly, I am humbled by the trust and faith you… Continue reading Stay wonderful, every one of you

This is a must-watch 🙂 which will change your view about life or at least provoke you to re-evaluate. Enjoy!

A positive post as part of #BeWOW @RonovanWrites - love the idea, what inspiration! When I heard this song, I thought, hey why not?! So here's a fun tune to share... and a message as well. A bit of the lyrics, specifically the Chorus: My problem, I never was a model, I never… Continue reading A bit of (dark) positivity…?
I wrote about sex as a soul experience some three weeks ago… and somehow it felt incomplete. Then it hit me… the thought which had remained was … how will this translate to daily life? So here it is… soulful sexuality in everyday life… Let’s begin in the shadow 🙂 If we accept the premise… Continue reading Soulful sexuality in daily life
Sex, sex, sex… that got your attention, 🙂 ? We know what ‘it’ is, don’t we? And how disappointing some of ‘it’ can be. There IS more to sex than what's being portrayed in the media and beyond the discourse of rights and freedom. Sex has soul. In fact, sex is an experience of soul. … Continue reading Soul experience of sex
“A deep sense of love and belonging is an irreducible need of all people. We are biologically, cognitively, physically, and spiritually wired to love, to be loved, and to belong. When those needs are not met, we don't function as we were meant to. We break. We fall apart. We numb. We ache. We hurt… Continue reading Soul connection, really?
Who is the third who walks always beside you? When I count, there is only you and I together But when I look ahead up the white road There is always another one walking beside you ... But who is that on the other side of you? TS Eliot, ‘The Waste Land’ What is… Continue reading Intimacy – a review
“A true soul mate is a mirror…” Do you agree? Can you be your own soul mate?
“People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake.”
From “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert
Look in your mirror and stay awake 😉
Specially for the creatives compelled to their craft because they must, as they must breathing. 🙂 You understand! I was emailed this, coincidentally while I am reading the Letters of Kurt Vonnegut. How simple and honest!
I have to reblog this…because frankly, I wish I was the one who had written it 🙂
The soulful expression of desire…
I am a simple man. What I desire is obvious to anyone that wishes to discover.
What do I desire? I desire to be stimulated, mind over matter. Turn my mind on and you have me forever. Only . . . turn my body on and have me for a few hours. I want to belong forever to . . .
What do I desire? I desire physical pleasure; a touch from love, a hand in mine that sends electricity through my body, a caress of my cheek that makes my body melt, a tender kiss that makes my body alive. I live because of . . .
What do I desire? I desire friendship far more than relationship. A friend understands, cares, is there, is honest, fights for you and with you if you are deserving of either. A friendship wants to be and does not have to be…

He calmly replied, “Being human is hard enough.” He was 6, and it was a response to my (I’m now embarrassed to admit) innocuous question, “what do you want to be when you grow up?” More so, I was ashamed of not seeing the truly beautiful human being that he is and the innate wisdom… Continue reading Soul and spirit of living
