Never Grow Old

28 May

She raced around the house in roller-blades.

She sang out loud in the street.

She picked icing off the cake the whole way home.

She read her book sprawled across a trampoline.

She danced to Madonna in her bedroom, when everyone had gone to sleep.

She ate half a pack of crackers and the last gherkin.

She helped herself to a handful of cherries at the market “to check if they were ripe”.

She drew a smile on her thigh, making a pair of eyes out of her two black bruises.

She was thirteen, and she was the best example of freedom that I had seen in my life.

Live Laugh Love

It’s been two months since my last post!

I took a brief break from creative activity, hoping that some time without writing could help me understand the next steps to take in my writing path. However, all but one question were left unanswered; the only thing that I realised in these past two months is that I can’t live without writing – it is as much a part of my life as breathing. Even if I’m not writing, I’m constantly thinking about writing. Everything I experience in the world around me goes into an idea bank, from which I withdraw a precious currency called Words – it is Words that make my world go round.

I am happy and excited to be blogging once more – I have missed sharing with you, fellow bloggers, and can’t wait to catch up with your posts.

Hope the sun shines on you this week-end!

Music Monday – My Wish

2 Jan

I wish you a Happy New Year!

May 2012 bring you joy, fulfilment, peace and health.

I share my wishes for you through this song…

Music Monday – A Day Like Today

19 Dec

Every Monday, I post a song or piece of music that I like. I ask you to close your eyes for three minutes and simply listen to the music that I have posted. Listen to it for the sake of listening to music, for the sake of being moved by music and for the sake of experiencing the world through your ears, not through your eyes.

You may like or hate the songs that I post, but one thing is sure: in closing your eyes and listening to music, a new world will unfold in your mind. It is the world of the imagination. 

Happy listening.

(Don’t forget to close your eyes…)

 

If there are songs or pieces of music you love, please share them with me and other bloggers by posting their title in the comments section. That way, we can all open up our musical horizons together!
