•{ Play the Music . . .

“We all develop personal relationships with music.”

 Cheryl Dileo quotes

Music is the heartbeat that fills my soul
The rhythm runs through me to the bones

Can you fell the rocking down in your core?
So come and play this music just a little more . . .

Called upon . . .

She could see it all
inside the confines of a glass ball.

She watched it through the day,
and through the night,
trails of the human plight.

Laughed with others joys
cried with others tears
Endlessly watching throughout the years

When her heart, to help, was moved
never would she personally intrude.

Called upon to sit and watch
And though given power to help, she would not.

“It’s not my place to get involved,” she’d say.
“Those things don’t concern me anyway.”

Though her eyes were open-wide
she failed to see.
the damage done to her own being.

Save

Wading in the reefs . . .

You can find her in the waters
wading in the reefs.
she waits for ships that pass,
and offers sailors relief.

She’ll hold you in her arms
and sing you softly to your rest.
With the strokes of her fingers
you’ll start to weaken.

Too late.
Your soul is now at her behest.

Time to slow down . . .

In life there are times where we simply have to slow down. Stop going so fast. Stop trying to cram as many things into the hour as you can. Stop trying to do everything at once.

So much of life is being missed due to the inability to slow down. People spend so much time on the ‘go-go-go’ that they start getting stressed, their nerves go on end, and relationships with others around them can even start to suffer.  We get tired and grumpy, but we can’t stop so we hook ourselves up to a hypothetical caffeine drip so we can keep go-go-going.

“It’s okay, I’ll rest later,” and “I’ll rest once this is done” are common excuses we tell ourselves to justify why we can’t slow down. In some cases this is true – something is suddenly tossed in your lap and it has to get done right away.  That doesn’t happen everyday. That’s not life.

If you don’t take the time to slow down and appreciate the things around you, if you don’t take the time to enjoy – actually fully enjoy – the things that you have, the opportunity to do so may pass. You may never have a second chance at a missed opportunity.

How many things have you missed simply because you were going too fast?  When was the last time you slowed down to enjoy life?

The truth is . . .

Beach1

The truth is, that sometimes I don’t know what I’m doing. I get so good at going with the flow, or simply acting like I know what I’m doing, that I fool myself.

The truth is, sometimes I can be a bit pushy.  I may not seem like much – quiet and recluse – but get me going and I can steamroll a person over.

The truth is, that sometimes I have to be a different version of myself just to make it through situations.

The truth is, sometimes I can’t do everything and I break down like every one else.

But here is something else.

The truth is that I know whatever bad things are going on, there is a brighter day around the corner. Sometimes all you need is a beach, a bar, and drinks with someone you care about, to turn things around.

Breaking to the surface . . .

drowDone1

Shalas stumbled as she broke through to the surface from the Underdark. The moon was bright. After having lived a couple hundred years in near total darkness, its light was blinding. Her eyes became like slits as she fumbled forward, navigating the terrain as best she could and putting distance behind herself and any attackers that may be following.

She should have seen this day coming. For weeks now there had been tension between her Drow House, Kil’an’dara, and the High Priestess. Shalas had shown disrespect to the Drow goddess, the Spider-Queen Loth, and that offense was punishable by death. Nothing had happened to her then but, on this day, while she was out, the High Priestess and her followers had struck. Shalas had arrived home to find all the members of her House killed. Even the servants.

Now here she was, alone and on the surface, in a land where all she knew about the creatures here came from stories. Shalas did not hear anyone following. It must be the light, she thought. The shine was hurting her eyes and she used a bit of magic to place a dark cast over her vision.  That was better, at least for now.  She would have to find shelter before the sun came up – stories said its light was brighter than the moons – then she would figure out a plan.

Into the Light

succubus1

“There is no denying that there is evil in this world but the light will always conquer the darkness.”
― Idowu Koyenikan,

“Maybe your spark is just beginning
And maybe it burns from a lifetime long ago
Darkness doesn’t stand a chance

Even when you’re close to midnight
Even when the walls are closing in
There’ll always be a star that’s shining
And the night will never win
Where the light is.” – “Where the Light Is” by Anthem Lights

 

There is a bit of darkness in all of us. Some call it evil, other people refer to it as sin. Everyone falls short.  Everyone does things that they are not proud of at times.  Everyone finds themselves in a state of despair sometimes.

We were created to be in the light.  We were not made to chain ourselves down to things that are bad for our souls. Simply because things happen in our lives to put us in a bad place it doesn’t mean that we should root ourselves there, in the darkness.

Who among us has done nothing wrong? Is anyone better than the next person?

You may be sinful.  You may have done, or are doing, something wrong.  You may be in a dark place in your life. Whatever the case may be, you pick yourself up and step into the light.  Tell yourself that you are not your darkness. You are not your sin.. You are not the bad things that have happened to you.
