Still Saturday: Pause

Pause: temporary stop, a cessation of activity because of doubt or uncertainty. ( Pausing: carving out time to just stop, just stone, just do nothing. Stop moving till have navigated / determined next steps. Getting lost in my albeit small city is not fun. Especially in the unfamiliar suburbs where high-rise apartments can confuse directions. […]

5-Minute Friday: Dance

There is a dance in my heart… actually it’s a dance that I am prancing around, between contradicting convictions. ie. When 1 exists, the other gotta give way, disappear, kaboom. Not that I love dancing on my own, but sometimes, I feel like it’s a dance I put myself in, between 2 totally opposite lines […]

Still Saturday: Resting

Verb + ing: Present continuous tense. – Currently going on as we speak. Rest: relaxed, unhurried, paced, meditative, sensing, deep breathing. A continuous state I reckon, being at rest. Not just a moment in time, but to be restful in heart. The heart being the wellspring of all things. I noticed that when my heart […]

#FWF: Secured

She looks curiously, yet cautiously staying away from the side where the 2-legged creature works furiously at the metal bars.

Photo Friday: Words

Words really resonate with me. Perhaps I got it from my Dad, who also finds solace in writing. I should let my Dad know how appreciative I am of the huge Oxford English Dictionary he bought me when I was 7. That started me on a journey filled with countless new words! literature in school, […]

5-Minute Friday: Risk

This exercise has been something I keep my eyes peeled out for every Friday noon – that’s when Gypsy Mama updates the next prompter for me to write, no holds-barred. 🙂 Risk has been something I am quite inclined to. I like the rush of new experiences, and the unknown beyond the now. Yeap.. the […]

Just Happy

Came across this quote by Paulo Coelho & especially the first statement, which just resonates much with me. Think there is much to learn for me, as an adult, when I interact with kids. Sometimes I ask them an adult question, “What makes you happy?” Or maybe “Why are you happy?” Some of the kids […]
