~~Claudia 2010My quotes and philosophies:
"One thing I've learned in this long life of half joy and half sorrow,
it's Love that decides when and how it loves -- not I."
"It's not how piercing the comebacks,
but how meaningful the argument." ツ
~~Claudia 2011The cruelty of how loved ones use silence as wall and weapon:
Silence, . . .when words should be spoken,Much of my life despite how cheerful and caring:
is to a relationship like, . . .
dark skies to a flower garden,
drought to a rain forest,
and breathless lungs
Song For TodayHollow as a rotted-out walnut shellBut then, goes full circle again:
blown, dropped, shattered
at the bottom of a waterless well.
Where are you now?
Silent to the end.
Hear me screaming?
Not a sound.
Find me, please?
I'm lost without.
I wished to be
What can I say.
Song for today . . .
Just A MessageI say,
make friends with yourself,
be at ease with yourself,
as the old adage "Wherever you go, there you are"...
You cannot leave yourself behind,
nor should you even try.
Let it go with you everywhere,
as both shadow and leader...
Learn, grow, make friends, and be at peace
with the one you first met
and will last hear with your last breath,
the person you know best...
an individual unlike anyone else
at any time.
