#Omens& Symbols . . . Hearts side by side


Hearts side by side.
A magical symbol for friendship is as ancient as human culture. Represents the togetherness of 2 souls. In magic, the symbol was important for bestowing good fortune on a relationship or on partners who were separated for extended periods of time due to travel, war, or trade. The friendship sign could also be involved to help influence the course of romance.

Product Placement


advertising is very slick
they plant a seed
into a Hollywood flick
hoping they’ll succeed

and without skipping a beat
we’ll spend a dime
above the cost of our seat
they get us almost every time

a subtle manipulation
of our mind
requires our instant gratification,
sometimes the expensive kind…

We owe it to ourselves…to grieve and cleanse our soul


When we lose a loved one to death or end a long-term relationship, it is perfectly normal to grieve. We must honor and recognize each stage of the grief and every emotion we have. When we do not grieve, we get stuck. We owe it to ourselves and the memory of the relationship to grieve and cleanse our soul.

Daily Prompts – Isolated Incident

Keep it alive

How quick we are to form opinions

One isolated incident is enough for us

Generalizations and sweeping statements are a rule

Not the exception with most people

Why should we debate a point when we’ve already

Formed our opinion, made a judgment

Waiting and giving a decent chance is not our way

We don’t pamper the guilty with a fair trial

We condemn them like an errant spouse, who

Fails to do one task assigned to them

And would never hear the end of it

But see how quickly Tale turn

When we are facing the same situation

Now we are raising the voice, standing up

Do listen to our story without quick condemnation

Don’t you judge me on one isolated incident!




Chocolate, Isolated, Spouse





Word of the day you’re;

A Conscience

Source of Inspiration


Why do we have a conscience
an awareness of our
beingness and connection
to others, a sense of life–
ours and others?
What is this inner voice
that pricks or praises us?

In every culture exists
evidence of man’s search,
his longing for answers
to his deepest questions:
Who am I?
Why am I here?
Is there a Universal Force
and, if so, what is my
relationship to it?
Am I connected to other
life and to what purpose?

What is evil, where did
it come from? Why am I
tempted by things I know
are not good for me or others?

On and on we ponder…but why?
Are we the only beings
who gnaw these bones?
