Me (thinking to myself): That makes sense .. I prefer it that way. Oh, I have missed writing my blog. I have missed my readers … Continue reading

There is Nothing Heavier than Compassion

Why? Why in the world are people so condemning toward each other? Do animals do this? Surely the animal world is kinder than that. Their aggression toward each other is from a natural state of survival. What is condemnation and where is it coming from? Do all people experience it?

I Want Real Love and Nothing of Its Imitation

I read a quote online, today, and this was it: To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they so clearly see your soul.

Something about Black and White

There is something about black and white. There is something about portraiture. There is something about some things that totally gets the mark. Sometimes, something stands out to us that totally reaches beyond the rest of what we are experiencing. I like that, I like that feeling. It’s perfection but it’s not.
