A perfect moment

I close my eyes-
The soft kiss of sunlight on my face
The gentle breeze whispering through the leaves in the trees
Wispy clouds like ribbons of cotton candy
Behind me the bustle of a busy city street
Cars and buses whizzing past,
But for me a moment of respite-
Wind on my face
Warm sunlight
Grass beneath me
And just like that
A perfect moment comes to pass...

The fallen
Never forgotten...

This time last year
The bloodshed 
The carnage
The innocent
So ravaged

In remembrance-

One of those songs that ignites a lost love in a rush of remembered brilliance...

If we only get one amazingly passionate love- have I lived mine?
And if we get a few... Again, have I lived mine?

No photographs left but the ones I carry in my heart and soul-

(Photograph-Ed Sheeran)

White chocolate mocha

Coffee shop
Many thoughts
White chocolate mocha 
On the radio- delicate refrain 
A few humans
Here and there 
Outside on the road
A sparkling sheen
After the rain...

And for the moment
Time slows down
Life slows down

I am content
Just to be still
Listen to the music
And breathe

I am...
And that is all 
In this moment

From the confines of "me"
I am set free...
And now I seek

The life I want

Me- I am in existential pain at the awareness of a deep loneliness

Bug- but isn't everybody? You should figure out a way to accept that

Me- I'm working on it...

(A curious thought experiment. . . Nietzsche's message to us was to live life in such a way that we would be willing to repeat the same life eternally

~Irvin D. Yalom)


In order to do so I must give up all that society has determined as "success"...

Building up courage to let it all go. To live the life I truly want is a scary thought!


There is an ache
An existential craving 
The seeks to connect
To touch,
On a human level
A simple human touch
