If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”  Émile Zola

Speak From Me

The inner dualities,
centuries old,
rage within,
threatening emptiness, nakedness,
if I pick up my brush or my pen,
or maybe my spade,
my mind asks that striving question,
will it be profound?
Which is really a question of
will it matter?
Yet a more timid urge,
the one that seems less in the world,
at least, until the work is done,
is when the heart says,
speak from me.
There, at my very centre,
arises the profound,
my profound,
in all its authentic glory.

Hearts Of Dreamers

Come read Sarah’s beautiful and romantic poem – Hearts Of Dreamers

Heartstring Eulogies

“Maybe that’s all we were. Dreamers.
And we knew the end was coming. Our end.”

Maybe that’s all we were. Dreamers. And somewhere, deep down, we knew the day would come that we would wake up and all of what we shared would be behind us. It was something we knew hovered on the horizon, but like any other mirage, we didn’t realize how close it was after all. And once it’s all said and done, the only thing that remains is memories. I have to admit, I wasn’t ready for reality to set in. I wasn’t ready for the end. Our end. But here we are, going our separate ways. I couldn’t help but wonder if we took a wrong turn somewhere. Nevertheless, the memories are all I have to hold on to.

And my heart will
never be the same again.

Tuesday’s Thoughts!

Don’t Miss these great quotes from JR’s – Nuggets of Gold

Nuggets of Gold

Happy Tuesday! I was informed by a dear reader yesterday that today was National Puzzle Day, so if you enjoy doing puzzles, today is the day to do them!  We have a puzzle that needs done, so perhaps tonight we will do that. I love how puzzles look when they are completed, but I will admit that I am not the most patient person in trying to work on one.  Life is a puzzle often and I have about as much luck sometimes trying to figure it out, as I do with puzzles.  Like a puzzle though, life can paint a beautiful picture! If your puzzle piece isn’t fitting in right today and you can’t find the other piece, don’t give up, keep trying, a beautiful picture is just waiting to be formed.
