Soul searching …

  Some days I am just trying to find the real me, my core… my soul.  Soul searching… every now and then it seems the two worlds collide leaving me lost, forgetting who I am and why I am here. Just for a moment I was here and then gone, as if there never was

Autumn

  It started with a song… Autumn is here! I’m not very fond of the change of seasons, however, Autumn or Fall, always brings a cheery feeling, with the vibrant hues of the trees decorating the landscape! Living in the northeastern United States provides a surplus of orange, red, yellow and gold shades dusting the

Parallel Worlds

It started with a song… well actually no, it didn’t.  This post started with a series of photographs by Ben Mossing Holsteijn titled Parallel Worlds.  I met Ben through two mutual friends and immediately became a fan of his work!  He excels at Pinhole Photography, among various other artistic methods to produce strikingly beautiful images

Perfect Moments

Describing Perfect Moments… “She smiled and said with an ecstatic air: “It shines like a little diamond”, “What does?” “This moment. It is round, it hangs in empty space like a little diamond; I am eternal.” ― Jean-Paul Sartre, The Age of Reason   It started with a song… well an entire album actually! I’ve

Sing anyway

Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. ~Emory Austin I’ve been writing a lot, not posting, not blogging… just writing. Scribbling down thoughts, bits of poems, stories of my past, wishes for a future…nothing very relevant or earth shattering, just snippets of a life. I’m trying to find myself again,

ghosts of love

I was listening to a song by Ryan Adams the other evening during one of our nightly thunderstorms. “When The Stars Go Blue” has always been a favorite of mine. It’s been covered by so many people but the original is the one I love. That song led to “Memories Of You” and the list

Come Talk To Me

It started with a song… one I’ve been listening to for what seems like a lifetime, but it really hasn’t been quite that long! It’s one of the songs I listen to when I need to get a blood transfusion for many reasons, but mainly because it is such a solitary experience. Just me, in

A Quiet Trumpet

It started with a song… well really it didn’t, it was a conversation about music though. A ‘quiet trumpet’ someone said… and for the life of me all I could think was that this was an oxymoron. When one thinks of the word trumpet, quietness is not something that generally comes to mind. Trumpets are

Morning Comes….

There is always hope. I tell myself this often, just to chase away the fear embedded in my mind when the day is done. The night is a lonely time as I wander around the quiet house, restless with my thoughts and the dark. Artificial light shines brightly, but is no match for the brilliance
