I have mixed feelings about privacy fences. On one hand, they are divine to me because I am a private person. I used to think I was an extrovert; I would tell you that I was the life of any party. And in a way, that was and is still true. Because publicly, I am … Continue reading Fences
A timeless moment that stills me deeply, sunset silhouette, peace seeps into me. Ripples on the bay, nature's palette, a silent messenger negates all of it. Beauty is always present, serenity an exercise, hope still floats and rises.
It has been way too long since I've gone to the ocean. And it's across the street! Shame on me!

No two secrets alike, but the sea harbors so many similar dreams, secret pleas whispered, its waves filled with such murmurs... Some search for shells, some for treasures, some look for those bottles with rolled up letter-answers, some … Continue reading Ocean Timeless
In the silence, blooms slowly awaken from deep sleep, each petal fading in to life, colored gradually by individual rays of soft, natural light. I wait in line. The peace already activating me inside, a hymnal hum with lost lyrics returning to mind. Here comes my light... I am ready. Old me, goodbye. Evolution of … Continue reading Silent Awakening
