Sweet Spots And Parachutes

I haven’t written for the longest time; even in my journal. I have been stable enough to not need to write and I decided I will only blog when the conditions are conducive for me to do so without worrying about my blog being inactive for a month or more.  Five years blogging simply because…

When The Heart Demands Following

The year ended on a shitty note. This one begun on yet another shitty one; no surprise there. I’ve been so broke it’s hilarious and lucky for me, I’ve had friends give me fare, food and even pay up my contribution to a film venture whose production I was part of. I hate begging, but…

Crafty Feelings

I have been crafting non-stop for the past two weeks. ‘Mornings are for crafting’ is the mantra I am living by at the moment- and I didn’t even have to make time for it; it kind of just fell effortlessly into my schedule.

THIS CONNIVING UNIVERSE!

Is the universe working for us or against us? Just from reading B.G. BOWERS‘ post and her 5 mantras ring as true for me too at this point in life. Read her full post here “If you treat your dreams like a one-night stand, the universe is going to stand you up.” “If you really…

FOR RENT

Like a house Given to me unbidden To be taken Without notice, My life is for rent

SWEET DREAMS

When you go to sleep If you shall dream Dream good dreams Of things that make you happy And wake you with a smile On your face Fear once conquered Dies away But a joy once felt Lives forever A glowing flame To light your heart In times of darkness That’s the way life goes

THE FACES OF DEATH
