Sometimes the greatest journey is the distance between two people.
I’ve heard this many times in my life: “I’m just trying to figure you out.” Am I that complex? It’s actually kind of irritating. I just don’t think you’ll actually get to know someone in 15 minutes. I need alot more time than that and some just aren’t willing to wait that long. I never have been a fast friend or one to jump into a relationship with both feet. I like to put a toe in and...
…You will never be lovelier than you are now. We will never be here again.– Homer, The Iliad
Sometimes, I don’t mind being alone. Other times, alone feels lonely. I love the quote from one of my favorite movies, Hitch: “single is not a sickness.” No, it’s not. But, it doesn’t mean it’s not a bummer sometimes.
Things are finally starting to feel a bit more normal. I think the mind is the most mysterious place on earth, as you NEVER know what someone’s thinking. Even if you ask, you get an abridged version of what’s really going on. It’s way to complex to really say or express everything. I’ve been keeping to myself alot and I kinda like being alone at times. It gets me away from all of the noise...
Are we to paint what’s on the face, what’s inside the face, or...– Picasso

This past few weeks I’ve had ‘writer’s block”. I’ve just had so much on my mind, there’s no possible way I could’ve ever put it into words. It’s strange how actions birth consequences and how those consequences effect even inocent bistanders. It’s insane how we are subject to another person’s free will. This life is certainly not fair. You want to protect the ones you love but, if they choose...
Power, time, gravity, love. The forces that really kick ass are all invisible.– David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear, and the blind can read.– Mark Twain
Is it the end of the world as we know it??
I wrote this the last time people were talking nonsense about the world ending. Thought I’d repost just for kicks…;)) Is it the end of the world as we know it?? I think not. I’m sure there’s thousands of people in line at the confessional, partying, blowing off responsibilities…Let’s get real, people. This has been a hoax that people get freaked out about every 10 years or so. I mean, people...
Childhood is measured out by sounds and smells and sights, before the dark hour...– John Betjeman (via vivaroosky) I quoted this a few months ago and I still believe it to be so true. My heart is saddened by yesterday’s tragedy. I’d protect a kid until I drew my last breath. My prayers are with those who have lost the little ones. My prayers are with those who...

Me, current, still standing ...
I’m just me. Not a version of something you like, love, etc. I have good days and bad days. I might make you laugh one day and not be in the mood for putting on a show the next.I can’t please everyone so, I don’t even bother. I just try my best to live each day and make it count. Insecurities are like the strongest paint thinner. Before you know it, everything that holds that color together are...
You may be lost, but you are not forgotten. For those who have travelled far, to...– Character: “Jack Durrance”, The Four Feathers (2002)
Like the butterfly with the tattered wings… The fact that it’s still alive is the most beautiful thing.
Like the weight at the end of a balloon… Helium gives it lift… The weight wins. Like the sorrow that creates dense heaviness in our hearts… Tears bring temporary relief…. The sorrow remains. There’s no time frame on when that break will mend or when the lump in the throat goes away. Perhaps, if we knew, we would never know the meaning of endure or hold fast....
O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; Of the endless trains...– Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Though its wings are broken, will it take flight again? Sometimes our journey breaks us but, the hope of healing makes us whole. This life is so short. Full of saddening beauty. The beautiful part is a must see.
I would rather spend one lifetime with you than face all the Ages of this world...– Arwen to Aragorn, LOTR
Longing. A Dwelling Place.
Longing is difficult as, it does not have a voice. Each beat of the heart beats harder and harder. Each sigh, gives breath to more sighs. My voice is drowned out by the unknown. Drowned out by noise pollution. My heart shouts out to the one that will never hear my cry unless, I give voice to what I’ve been longing to say. Will tears take away my breath as, I try to speak what...

Thru the Looking Glass
Sometimes the present can be seen like the future. Intuition burns within like the ember that just won’t die.
It is blue-butterfly day here in spring, And with these sky-flakes down in...– Blue Butterfly Day - Robert Frost I very much love butterflies. I often see them take flight around me and by the time I grab my camera, they’re gone. It is a gift to capture these moments in still.
We just have to realize that it is gonna be what it is no matter how badly we want to change it. Life has an expiration date. You can’t freeze it, vacuum seal it, or hide it in the dark. You just have to open it and let it breathe like a fine red upon first opening. I’d rather live with the bumps and bruises than go out exactly the way I came. Life can sometimes be bittersweet but, i’ll take the...
Right the wrong. Love me until I feel strong again. Go away past exiter. Time travel me back to the sweet moments of the past when you were a real human being. Now, your a stranger. Present moments have changed too much for me to breathe. Falling asleep and waking up only to remember. No peace comes to me until I’m so exhausted I cannot hold my head up any longer. Waiting for that unexpected...
My love, leave yourself behind Beat inside me, leave you blind My love, you have...– Sia I couldn’t sleep and I was listening to this song. It’s so stunning!
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on...– Buddha
Some days can’t be shaken off no matter what. It’s just like the haze and gray that’s hanging over everyone and everything today. I can’t even see the sun beneath the clouds. It’s just one of those damp, gloomy days. I couldn’t run from it even if I tried. Some days feel like a loss. I must admit, I’m feeling kinda blue. Why? That’s for me to tell my...
Don’t believe everything you hear. Don’t fly blind. Don’t be so quick to speak.
Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp,...– Nathaniel Hawthorne
A Prayer in Spring
Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day; And give us not to think so far away As the uncertain harvest; keep us here All simply in the springing of the year. Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white, Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night; And make us happy in the happy bees, The swarm dilating round the perfect trees. And make us happy in the darting bird That suddenly...
