•{ Break from reality . . .

Sometimes we all need to simply take a break from reality. The things there can weigh on us so much. They can pressure us down and cause us to miss out on the beauty of life which lies all around us.

Things have been getting me down lately. There’s a lot of stuff that I don’t talk about and oftentimes I let my pictures do the talking instead. Sometimes it’s easier that way. You don’t have to explain a picture or its words, you can let people take from it whatever they wish.

I set out this morning with the troubles of yesterday still pressing on my shoulders. Every time I pushed the thoughts aside they circled back and were right there again.  I needed a new mindset so I could get through another day, but at the time I didn’t see how it was going to be possible.

But then a message hit my phone, and the content was so simple that I instantly laughed. I wrote back and said, “That was right on time.”  Response came back saying that I was on their mind; was I doing fine, they’ve been feeling quite unsettled and that the feeling was mine.

We traded banter back and forth, and joked like it was a sport. It gave my head the space that it needed. Set me back on track. I don’t know how my would have gone if it wasn’t for that.

It was a break from reality.
A little healing for my sanity.
A little something to set the mind free.
Are your words as they come back to me.  

Lay your head upon my shoulder.
Time passes but we’re not getting older.
I’ll be there for you and you for me.
Wherever you are is my reality . . .

•{ Spread your wings . . .

Tired Angel spread your wings,
don’t listen to all those silly things.
Though days are short and nights are long,
There is peace with each new dawn.

Tried Angel you fret.
You know your work ain’t over yet
Send the troubles out to sea
The weight is gone and now you’re free . . .

•{ What you see . . .

You said you’ve always seen it
That she’s been there all along
I said maybe, but it’s been shadowed for so long

You said you don’t believe it, why can’t I see it?
That I’ve got that fire and it’s always been shining through

I don’t you don’t mean no harm
Even if it’s all charm
Because the words you say
Make me bolder every day

•{ Top of the World . . .

I don’t have the energy for this anymore.
People come and go,
like Life’s a revolving door

Next time you turn around
I won’t be found
All you’ll see
Is this reflection of me

•{ Cold never bothered me . . .

I wonder who the person was who said that one must be cruel to be nice? Seems like an oxymoron to me. Though isn’t that what we do? We push people away because we try to spare them from the mess that is us. We act distant and cold, we may even delve into things that purposefully cause people to keep away.

We should be careful. Linger in the cold too long one might forget what it’s like to be warm.

“The cold never bothered me anyway….”
