Try Not To Dwell On Past Sorrows

Sharon Unfiltered

There has been a lot of incidents in life that have caused pain. Regardless of how it started, there is no point in pointing the finger at anyone in particular. Things just happen as a result of a chain reaction of events. Events that got erratic, out of control and emotions ran as high as the Dormouse from Alice In Wonderland.

You can feel terrible guilt for saying things have distorted, even blank, memories about which really eats into your feelings causing regret and confusion. If you said X or Y then why wasn’t it addressed by Z? Why have relationships been allowed to be destroyed over misplaced words? Life is precious and so are people but we change. For better or worse, in sickness and in health.

People in your past can still be loved and cared about even if you had a huge disagreement with them. You’re human…

Live Together, Love Together

Sharon Unfiltered

We can live together
Love together
Do whatever we want together
In the best of all possible worlds
Nothing is impossible


Possible Worlds lyrics © Tairona Songs Ltd

The 1990 track above from Scottish dance music band The Shamen’s En Tact album is really beautiful to play loud and mellow out to. I’ve just been listening to it on repeat mode as I dozed and it’s a gem of a song I’ve loved for years, that guitar work against the wonderful 90s electronica is gorgeous.

Pure positivity to uplift and soothe the soul

Never judge anything by outer appearance, for the calmest water is often hiding behind the wrath of rough waters

Keep it alive

Melanie is the host of SYW


1. What’s your favorite way to exercise? (if you do or don’t. Exercising one’s mind is a valid answer IMHO, because that’s my favorite).

To exercise my body, I walk daily. Recently the duration has decreased a bit as we were busy shifting from one city to another and there was a lot of work to do. And working, unfortunately, doesn’t give yousteps.

For my mind, I do puzzles, play card games and do a ton of reading and writing when I blog. I think this should keep my brain active and healthy.

2. What’s more important to you – family or friends?

Both are equally important. Family, especially your intrinsic family is obviously very important. We would do anything for them. But we need friends too as they are the family we choose for ourselves.

WQWWC # 42 – Communication

Keep it alive

This weekly writing challenge runs from Wednesday through Tuesday. The only rule is to use a quote.

WQWWC #42 Communication


This is not only absolutely true but also so very essential. Without good communication, one can end up losing friends or even family members to misunderstandings.

Paying attention to the tone of the voice and how something is being said is also important if we want to reallyconnect with other people. The word “Fine” is the perfect example. It can be either very good or pretty bad.

Yes, good communication is power indeed. It is the secret to the success of many people in public life. Politicians, actors, public office holders all need to have great communication skills.

This one I think is the most important of all. Never assume, but ask instead…

Remembering “YOU” and 10 ways to mother yourself

Rhapsody Bohème

“Dead people receive more flowers than the living ones because regret is stronger than gratitude.” ~Anne Frank

September is always a tough month for me. It never used to be this way but it has been for the past two years. While it marks a time for Indian Summer, the last warm days of the year, it also marks a time of the darkness increasing over the light, the days becoming short, and life giving way to dormancy and a colder way of being. It marks a time of death, of falling leaves, leaving behind skeletons wrapped in bark. It’s a time of going inward, a time for regeneration, a time for rest, of gathering strengths for all the new that lies ahead.

For me it is also a time of remembering you, remembering just a little more than usual. Fact is that I remember you all the time and…

Off the block


(From shutterstock)

Words, words, words! However much I write about them, there is always more to write.
They gush forth like a river in spate, giving me no pause to stem their flow. They gurgle happily like an infant asking to be mollycoddled. They are like an earworm refusing to be quietened. They fall over each other clamouring to be captured and meet the eye of the reader.

It is often the paucity of time that puts breaks on their ride. Some wither away, some die with exhaustion and some go in hibernation refusing to be cajoled to grace the pages. Only the hardy ones survive to tell their tale.

Perhaps it is my pact with them that I will give voice to them without being judgemental which keeps them from deserting me.

Raindrops keep falling
a backdrop to my musings
constant thrum of words.

Written for dVerse. Today’s…
