In the sea of endless faces,
It’s only your’s that I see.
Not by far, the eyes can tell
In my mind, your memory
Today is day #3!
My mind continues to wonder, stirring the pot of thoughts.
My heart continues to pray,
hoping time creates some clarity!
So many thoughts race through my mind. Time will certainly sort them out.
Until then, I guess I have to get comfortable with the unknown.
Dear Nova ,
Do you smell the sweet-bitter aroma?
Can you hear the people with their complex orders
Shh... Listen to the expresso machine Murmur
As you stand and wait for your order to be placed.
Anticipating the mouth-watering taste.
The first sip that has you ready for the day.
I miss these none coved 19 days
Where I could walk into a coffee shop truthfully barley awaking
Standing to wait for my cup of joe.
Just wonder am I alone.
Thanks for the add pin pal😁
I’m waiting for “ Hello!”
To become “ How you been!?”
Good Monday from Ohio, USA! I’m sure it’s afternoon, evening, and Tuesday for others of you. I just wanted to wish you a happy week, full of sunshine moments and joyful memories!
Life’s for the living, even during COVID-19!
I desperately need contentment and peace!
I’ve missed them for so long now, don’t know how they slipped away!
Suffocating, analyzing, criticizing
It’s all too much.
The moon hears the
between the mind
& the heart.
The neutral variable.
Keeper of all our secrets.
Silence in the nighttime hours.
So much said without words.
Over and over, the pattern continues.
I meet you.
And I get attached.. too attached. Oh so damn fast...
You had little to no intention on staying.. no desire to place me in your priorities.
The pain of your absence breaks my heart...
But not nearly as much as my heart’s site on the potential that could have been.
This insanity has to stop.
Before there’s no more left to break.
Dark and Light.
We’re meant to be 🤎💕
Take no time for fear of the future
Waste no time regretting the past.
Be with me , present, in these moments
For how ever long they last.
She had forgotten herself,
In the days she sewed costumes,
Attended concerts, games, graduations,
Cried herself to sleep, unable to
Hold it in anymore.
In the long nights of homework,
Early morning bus rides,
She had forgotten to be a woman..
Until it was time to do her again.

“Letter to Me”
Hey Ms Nova:
How you doin girl? How you really doing? I know you, you always got some whirlwind of stories called “ life”.
Yea, I hear all that! The world you once knew, is no longer. It never will be again; something we must accept.
Now, I know you are struggling.
I KNOW you are; but, the first step you doing right is acknowledging it. That’s awesome! I’m proud of you!
But, it doesn’t stop! As soon as I think I’m heading on up, I feel the weight of this world fall on me again.
Resilience has always been in your pocket, girl! You’ve been through he...
It’s just my life...
It’s just my heart...
It’s your insensitivity...
It’s your chastising...
It’s your evil gaze...
It’s your narcissism...
It’s a suffocating spin...
It’s over and over, your
The storm’s stirring my soul.
There’s no shore in sight.
The past and present battling for first place.
I don’t know what the answers are.
I don’t know how they’ll come.
What’s best for me isn’t clear.
When to give up? When to let go? How much is the loss? Is it even a loss?
The winds of change have come; but, I feel they’re too heavy for my wings.
I may need to perch upon my place of familiarity.. and wait for a sense of direction.
Smiles are everywhere~
Sunshine peaking through clouds.
First sight of a new born,
Butterfly landing on your hand,
Fresh hot coffee,
Spring blooming color,
A stranger’s kind gesture,
Hot yummy meal,
Pets playing with the owners,
Unexpected money found,
Quality time with good company.
I see and feel them all the time.
I also try to return them into the universe.
Hello Lettrs Family! I just want to encourage you to celebrate all that you love this February. One day of the month is set aside for your special love; but, life has a million ways to place a smile in our heart... Find them and embrace them.
Take a minute, close your eyes, and breath in. Notice the cool autumn breeze coming through the window ; and the complimentary warm sunlight? In this very moment, it's as if the universe knew you needed this perfect feeling.
You've gotten through the day with what you knew. Then, in just a split second, you remembered a small important detail, that shed light on all that today's been. The chaos is what it was. Forgive yourself for embarrassing yourself, and acting less respectful infront of your daughter. Allow yourself to feel some grace because you deserve it.
Compared to most others, you have to handle so much more. You do it well, and that's enough. I...
There's nothing I want more then to have family at my house for Thanksgiving.
I have spent most of that day, these past few years, alone..because my girls were gone.
This year, around that weekend, me and my two, my boyfriend, my daughter's father, and sister and her husband will be gathering together.
I can't wait!!
With love and light:
My logic warns me to keep a far distance; and to not let my guard down. It tells me that I've been doing ok with working through my pain. It's reminding me of the changes that inevitably hurt me...
My heart, though, knows how much my pain had been because of what I thought and might not be the truth.
Maybe time changed things, provided a new perspective. Maybe I am respected a bit more than I was previously. Who knows...
One day at a time.
Good Things Take Time
The important lesson we must remember, especially with exposure to endless instant gratification, is that patience is a virtue.
Evergreen trees grow and flourish. They provide shade, an amazing fragrance, and long-lasting beauty.
But this process happens over time.
Caterpillars wiggle their way to food and shelter. Eventually, they make their way to the branches and built cacoons. This is a process that happens over time.
A woman survives a brutal attack. She's a fighter, a champion, and strong. She pushes herself, refuses to accept defeat. She decides she's going to overcome. This is a process that happens over time.
Professionals begin school, day 1. They have...
As I've embarked on a full week of seeing and being, I have truly enjoyed the "little things!".
They're what life is, all those little moments that happen. It's not what materials I have or how much I have saved, it's not the size of my place but rather how much love I've given and the size of my heart.
I hope to continue to be inspired by all that's around me, and within every situation I live.
He's never seen anything like it before. People, in the most vibrant colors, were coupled everywhere. Men were lovingly embracing the waist of his lover. Women were gliding through the huge crowd, with their love in hand. The cheers and screaming of the parade erupted moments ago. There was no prevention of affection. There was no condemned picketing signs or arrests. There was simply a community, unified by pride, celebrating their individuality. It was so surreal, he had tears running down his cheeks.
" It's painful the judgement of what others don't understand. " He thought, reflecting back to his own horrific coming out to his parents.
" This is the most magical place I've ever seen. "...
Thank you Drew, for sending me such a beautiful stamp! I love the message it carriers; and, I, too, marvel at the design we resemble embodied. There's amazing things that happen under our skin, and we should all me mindful to treat such with care and love.
When I'm physically exhausted, I'm usually mentally drained, as well. It's not a wonder how our mental state affects our physical wellbeing. During those times, I retreat to peaceful nature areas but water. The sound of the creek or stream flowing instantly replaces my stress with peace. When I'm sitting by a lake, I feel it's so vast that all of my troubles can float away, never to return.
Sitting by the lake, here in Cleveland, we'r...
" The sun will always shine and the moon will always glow, she said while staring into the distance. He smiled as he put his hand on her shoulder. As she turns around, he says
" Julia, dear, I have something I need to tell you." His face went flushed, as if he was just hit with the flu.
"Roger, what is it? You look as if you've just seen a ghost." Julia t responded.
"Come, sit next to me."
"Roger, what on earth is the matter?" Julia said in utmost concern.
" I don't know how to tell you this; I really didn't know how to accept it myself. " He added.
" Well, whatever it is, I'm certain we can get through it together!" She reassred Roger.
" But you see," He began," it won't...
The Footsteps of the mind
Are tracks of her mistakes. The choices she was free to make, All the roads that were dead ends. They're the turns that hid the wrong turn signs, and every Tear she ever cried. She walks those steps, Reminding herself, How strong she is. What brought her here, Who she used to be… Then she takes his hand, And they ride off into the sunset.
The Letterist Pooja sent me this beautiful stamp.
It's amazing how much can be said in just a few words.
I love you.
I am sorry.
Please forgive me.
Here, the power is in two beautiful word: Be Yourself.
I love this stamp because it's a great reminder that I was handcrafted from a blueprint unlike anyone else. When I was born, I possessed a unique combination of character traits, talents, gifts, and abilities. They are " me", and my originality should always be celebrated!
Thank you Pooja, for this wonderful reminder.
I hope it inspires you readers, as well.
