Ladies and Gentlemen, the bride

If I touch a burning candle, I can feel no pain. If you cut me with a knife, it's still the same. And I know her heart is beating, and I know that I am dead; yet the pain here that I feel, try and tell me it's not real, and it seems that I still have a tear to shed.

Art reminds me I have a soul


Girl holding flowers

It is Spring here and we are preparing ourselves for a steaming hot Summer but it was not our season that inspired me. Whenever I am worried, I got my pencils and oil pastels to let off steam. Drawing/ painting/doodling helps me to find balance. It is a therapy because my minds concentrates on colors and shapes. Art is a fantastic thing! I do think Art and Poetry soothe our minds and hearts. They are the real proof human beings can be bigger than they are in fact. I found this quote:

Life beats down and crushes the soul and art reminds you that you have one. 
Stella Adler

I am glad I still have mine.

Have a magical day!

In the silence

To creep in by candle-light,
When all the world is fast asleep,
Out of the cold winds, out of the night,
Where the nettles wave and the rains weep!...
And light the candle and look round
The old familiar room;
To see the old books upon the wall
And lovingly take one down again...
And, or ever we go, we lift and kiss
Some idle thing that your hands may touch,
Some paper or book that your hands let fall...
To kiss and to cherish it, moaning our pain,
Ere we creep to the silence again.
~Alfred Noyes, "Ghosts"


In culture after culture, people believe that the soul lives on after death, that rituals can change the physical world and divine the truth, and that illness and misfortune are caused and alleviated by spirits, ghosts, saints ... and gods.

Love & Compassion

I have been quite inspired lately and journaling is a passion. I caught myself thinking about love and compassion: two rare feelings in a world where so many forgot where their hearts are.We can't live without both feelings: the first makes us walk without our feet and the second makes us touch the other with our hearts. My mother and father taught me both and I am grateful to them because they have made my life more meaningful.

It must be an angel


To see an angel, you must see another's soul.
To feel an angel, you must touch another's heart.
To hear an angel, you must listen to both.
