Today, my head feels full,
It feels busy and overcrowded,
As I try and navigate my day,
But instead find myself worrying only about what's next,
Or what has been before.
I'm exhausted, my love,
I know you feel it too.
There's a huge list of things that we have imposed upon ourselves,
As we try to make ourselves feel more of something.
But we are missing something.
For this is not a time to fill our diaries
In order to feel more important.
And it's not a time to say yes,
So that we feel we have done our bit.
It's not even a time to revert back to our self-help books,
Which serve only to teach us that we are not already whole enough.
Instead, it is simply time to see
That this is a beautiful part of life's natural cycle,
An autumn of sorts,
Riding on the wings of change.
And in this way, beautiful darling, it is a time to Nurture,
And a time to find some spaciousness,
In that we are able to fully go inwards.
This, my love, is a time to dive into our hearts,
Amidst the not seeing of what we truly desire,
And tap back into our deep knowing.
And it won't last forever -
Only as long as it takes for us to surrender and allow our leaves to shed,
And then we will begin,
Slowly but surely,
To see the new buds peeking through.
And we will laugh,
And a smile will creep out across our faces,
From somewhere deep within our hearts,
And we will know,
That we just needed to see our infinite capacity to bloom. 💐
La realtà è terribilmente sfuggente.
I confini delle cose vibrano con terribile imprecisione. Sono mutevoli e cangianti sotto i nostri stessi occhi, inafferrabili e in ultimo inconoscibili.
Eppure noi dobbiamo conoscere.
Abbiamo bisogno di dare un nome alle cose. Nel mutare del tempo e dello spazio dobbiamo dichiarare un luogo e un'ora a cui poter tornare. Come una persona che ci diventa cara e abbiamo bisogno di incontrarla di nuovo. Ci servono appuntamenti con la realtà. E speriamo che essa sarà puntuale all'incontro.
Ma nasce un altro rischio: quello di incastrare le cose.
Rischiamo di ingabbiarle in categorie e schemi. Appena togliamo loro quella imprecisione diventano morte, e fredde.
Cos'è più terribile? Guardare la persona che amiamo e dire "non ti posso conoscere"? Oppure fissarla con sufficienza e poter dire "non hai più segreti per me"?
Viviamo costantemente questa terribile dicotomia, nella realtà che non possiamo conoscere, o nelle cose che muoiono sotto le nostre strutture inclementi.
Per questo nascono le storie.
Abbiamo bisogno di percorrere un viaggio che ci porti alla riscoperta delle cose.
Non al nome per cui le conosciamo, ma quello per cui si fanno conoscere.
Le storie conducono al nome che le cose portano.
I woke up beside you, your arms wrapped around me. It was cold outside but you felt warm and homely. I could feel your slow breath on my skin, it was warm and strangely comforting. I turned my head and I saw a photo frame kept on the side table - of a couple in what looks like Greece, they looked so happy, they were us.
I get out of bed carefully to not wake you up, and I saw photographs of us on the stand, as if for the first time. There were pictures of us in Switzerland, in Hawaii, places we loved, and there were pictures of us in Syria and Iraq, where we had gone for humanitarian aid, following your dream. It was always the two of us against the whole world.
Our dogs were sleeping by the door, us and our unconditional love for dogs had been one of the defining principle of our relationship and it only made sense to have a home full of dogs. I brushed their fur slowly and walked out to the kitchen. We both had never been great cooks, but we sure love to surprise - so I decided to bring you breakfast in bed, sandwich and of course your tea. You can have a gallon of that stuff, can't you? I brew myself some coffee.
By the time I brought in the food, you had already woken up, still clinging to the bed, and the smile you had when you saw the efforts I put in - it said you loved me in ways words never could. I loved you too, and in that moment all I could think of was being around you a little longer.
But time is fleeting like sand in hand, you want to hold on to it, but the harder you hold, the faster it goes away.
I remember I was leaning in to kiss you a good-morning and the next, I was in bed, all alone in the dark.
With a beautiful morning like this
The sun shines bright an nature’s welcoming green kiss.
Let us remember to thank God for his mercy and blessings. A simple 5-minute prayer every morning or a minute 5-minute talk with him describing the feelings in our heart an the misunderstanding in our minds, this can change everything. No specific religion is applied, once all of your faith is.
Life isn’t dark with Gods graceful light in it.
You see, I’m not perfect but I try to be the best person I can be, I try to deal with situations in the best way possible without feelings getting in the way. I don’t always win and when I don’t God gives me the wisdom to realize it and the courage to own up to it with an apology.
Charges are dropped by God when he changes your life around and you start proceeding to live a life according to his will And his rights. #godsmercyisamazing#thankhim#praisehim#lovehim#venttohim#raiseabove#createpeace#liveright#bekind#love#light#thankful#happymonday#beautifulday#photography#nature#green#sun#light#mywords#myfeelings
Two days into the the Full Harvest Moon, one of the rarest celestial phenomena that occurs every 20 years. Farmers rely on the Harvest Moon to gather their crops during the harvest time in August.
This is my third attempt at getting a glimpse of this divine beauty.
In this year's occurrence, I attempted to stop the flow of time and capture a rare image of the Moon while it was at the farthest reaches of its orbit, spinning around the Earth at 0.64 miles/second (3,708 km/hour). Some believe Full Moons are associated with spooky events and lunacy, but whether or not this holds true the Moon has indeed captured the hearts and minds of people around the world across millennia.
We walked on the Moon in the late 1960s and early 1970; we have been studying it from a distance ever since, but the future will tell if the Moon would be our next evolutionary step in the exploration of the Cosmos. Humans are returning back to the Moon in 2024 to stay, explore, build industries, expand the economy, set sail to Mars and beyond, and serve the growing needs of the Earth.
