So like adventurous children lets enjoy escapism when the time is right, and let’s keep our eyes wide open when it’s a little bit darker; because when we endure the silence and darkness of the night we won’t miss the rising of the sun as the dawn comes. Continue reading Escapism
In those moments, its so easy for cynicism to become our default world view. Disillusionment is like a poison that sneaks in when we least expect it. Like the unwelcome visitor, we inadvertently open the door to it, unaware of what its entrance will bring to our lives. Continue reading When the shadows become a reality
I woke up to the wonderful news that Rhapsody (rhapsodyboheme), has nominated me for the versatile blogger award. This means such a great deal to me; it’s certainly not something I expected when I started blogging a few months ago. My blogging journey has been very capricious for lack of a better word; I suppose it was always going to be that way since my personality is often the same; (fickle but I prefer the much more dignified word capricious).
