I have been walking towards you my entire life,
hopeful that one day we will meet
somewhere in the middle.
When it comes to love,
I have no interest in triangles.
I see no value in moving in never-ending circles either,
especially when the centre is always the heart of everything.

‘You are my centre.’

I am not affected by your level of hate.
If I wanted to experience the kind of power
you think you possess, I would visit the sea
at its moment of weakness and give myself
to the raging tides.

I once read that Samuel Beckett wrote 'Waiting for Godot' in French because it forced him to be more attentive to the lexicon and grammatical structures he employed in his masterpiece.
Some time ago I sent a friend of mine (who can speak English and who is also a colleague) a poem I wrote for them.
I had encased my chaotic thoughts in the finest glittery English words, knit as delicately as grandma would knit a lace shawl or a baby sweater.
I had checked once and twice that my poem felt smooth to the touch, that there were no yarn ends left  loose, and  that I hadn't forgotten a pin somewhere as I struggled against the needles to craft the gift.
When I finally presented my work to my frien...

I have found more morality

More ethics

In the literature of authors

Such as Dostoyevsky

Orwell

Kafka

Than I have ever found

In any religious text.

You will never achieve the peace
you desire if you keep surrounding yourself
with people who emit a sound that differs from yours.
We all thrive at different frequencies;
you should never get to the point
where you become accustomed
to high level noise,
those that do,
end up becoming what they hear.

Wu Wei - Effortless Action

Something Taoists say we can learn by watching water.

When a stream comes to some stones in its path, it doesn't struggle to remove them, or fight against them, or think about them. It just goes around them. And as it does it sings. Water responds to what's there with effortless action. -The Te of Piglet

One of the many advantages to seeing things as they are is that we can solve problems through observation and deduction. After all, how can we solve problems if we can't first clearly see what they are? And the best time to see them is in the beginning. "Trouble is easily stopped before it commences," wrote Lao-tse. " Put things in order before chaos occurs." In other words, an ounce of prevention. Is worth a pound of "pesticide." -The Te of Piglet

My alma mater was books

A good library

I could spend the rest of my life

Just reading

Just satisfying my curiosity.

Everyone is different;
we all have our mountain to climb.
The dizzy heights
that leave people breathless,
can also,
for some,
exist at its base.

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.

The worst part
of letting go,
is all the broken things
we cling onto,
as
we
suffer
the
fall.

If you give hate a reason to thrive,
its roots will flourish,
fooling the world
into believing
it had grown a rose.

The Big Book of AA outlines thirteen, if you will, bedevilments…

“We were having trouble with personal relationships (1), we couldn’t control our emotional natures (2), we were prey to misery (3) and depression (4), we couldn’t make a living (5), we had a feeling of uselessness (6), we were full of fear (7), we were unhappy (8), we couldn’t seem to be of real help to other people (9).”
These of course are a count of nine distinct thinking disorders and emotional problems, all quite familiar to us now as we continue to read through our journey. The final four bedevilments are specifically named in the Big Book of AA as the four horsemen of king alcohol...

“The less people tolerated us, ...

We are surrounded by sound;
it’s easy to become distracted by the daily noise.
It is important that you take the time to focus
and listen to your inner voice
- that much power should never be ignored.

When I was with you, my eyes were fooled.
They only saw what you wanted them to see.
I worshipped you as though you were the only person who could save me, but you deliberately kept me hungry, knowing I would feed on your empty promises, convinced that they were a feast.
You didn’t care that I regularly tore into my own skin, just so I could feel something.
My pain always went unnoticed in the same way that I was always invisible to you.
When I look back at my life with you, with the same eyes, they see things differently now.
Where there was once doubt and confusion, a fog that I could never shake, it is clear to me now that you silenced my voice because you refused to acknowle...

I am not afraid of the storm,
I welcome the rain.
The ground beneath me may open,
but this rose has roots,
when exposed,
feed quicker in order to survive.

Dear Mom,

Once an author told me that the thing that is worse than having cancer is watching someone you love suffer from it.
It has been a while now, although I m rarely around to watch, not a second pass without me being aware of it.
I never told you about the nightmares I have, I wake up with a thought that I have lost you. The lizards on the wall, the darkness, the crowd, all my fears fail in front of the fear of losing you.
I have always been a strong girl, not as strong as you. I know when you see me , you see dad in me more than your own reflection, way too emotional right?
But I always saw you as my strength, you always had my back. I could come crying to you , I use to ,not anymore....
