we tip toe at the beginning,
passing smokers at the front door.
swing open and hear the bell,
rain drips tears down naked windows.
opportunity strikes now,
whistle blowers held captive,
until the morning sun returns.
it’s now or never, & never again.
our chest pumps harder
as we escape the hidden cameras.
moving quickly to catch up
time equates with success & progress.
slow down and speak with intention.
forget not, the past you of the present.
one step becomes two steps become three.
whoever we became is unknown clearly.
winning is a win, until the next game begins
drink sweetly and heal heartily in between
before the challenging race starts again.
peace yourself together, take time
those rushed see only blurry lines
of who they used to be.
i made this key chain. i think it’s super cute.
i noticed, at this very instance, that i’ve been feeling more with my heart than thinking with my mind. maybe this is just now. maybe it’s been for a while. i was reading a blog post about why history was important and it wasn’t that i was bored or that the content wasn’t important, it was that my heart was over my mind. distracted. unfocused. so right now, i guess, you could say i’m writing from the heart. wondering, what is it trying to say?
one’s life involves so many various decisions and experiences. every perspective is a different one. it reminds me of those stories that we all have heard about those coincidences and maybe not coincidences at all. the ones how actors will say something like, “i wouldn’t change anything because it lead me right where i am now.” or how some boy, who was from the middle of nowhere, somehow created an empire and was now famous for something none of us would have ever thought of or would ever think to do. and i start to think of how many of those people do i know? thinking, would i change anything? thinking, no one really knows anything at all. we just decide to. we make the decision.
i apologize ahead of time for the grammatical and spelling errors. i’m learning now that when one’s heart is in control, it does not care what is logical or what makes sense. it doesn’t care about rules or holding back. it’s the almost too natural instinct to let go. whether it is to show love to someone. let go of the fear. whehter it is to follow your dreams. let go of the routine. whether it is to eat junk food. let go of control. i’m following my heart right now. i’ve already made several spelling mistakes and fixed them. but i’m letting go now. i’m letting go of being right.
you swore it never would
tear down like everything else.
unconvinced this little part
that began as self-doubt
until it actualized into being.
you told me breaking down
makes you build yourself up.
like giving all you give
and receiving what you should
until nothing else surrended
the residual evidence of life
is the solid matter of you.
overshadowed in the past,
you are the spotlight today
shine, shine all that is you
feeling a little creative. posting photographs from my ol’ little archive of stuff (all photographs are taken by me, i credit otherwise) and seeing if i can convey thoughts that make sense.
…is soon coming! but first there is this:
…and makes me want to eat (and make) more warm, sweet, yummy..
beef and fish don, ramen suzukiya
& more walks with these views
which reminds me, remember to be kind to our furry friends
and don’t forget our self wellness!
and relax, sit back, enjoy company with friends & family
or in bed all warm and snuggly
is today, tomorrow and every single day. live in beauty like a
and spread as much of this as much as you can. they say all we need is…
empty walls divulge
of conversations and acts
presented throughout time;
white paint fades
as spider webs form
and shiny coatings
hi everybody, i just couldn’t wait to show this. here’s to all those people who love halloween. here is illustrations 1 & 2, and 3, 4, & 5, and 6.
the human experience
to love someone
to love ourselves.
involves a lot of understanding,
compassion, time and patience.
effort worth taking.
there is no mask to wear
that can cover what we see
in ourselves and others every day.
words spoken that need not said,
actions that are unwanted
divert honesty to our truest intentions.
this is a graphic i made a while ago. happy first day of october :)
opening your insides
exposing the depths
of emotions and truths,
feelings of weakness,
transparency & defenseless.
it is strong.
it is honest.
it is brave.
accepting the humanness that is
being who you are, even if it’s scary
