the stitch-ripper

Saturday, September 27, 2008
Those who sew will agree that sewing stitches into any piece feels far easier that ripping said stitches out of said piece. It's sort of how love and life seem, ain't it? It goes without saying that the tighter the sewn stitch, the greater the difficulty in removing it, and the greater the likelihood of needle-poke scarring. And then, on re-stitching we find that the constitution of the fabric has weakened from that recent trauma. This makes cupid's sewing task more difficult.

could i be her?

Could I be like her?
Feel like her?
You know what's most painful
about a major break-up?
Not belonging.
I have, for so long,
defined myself by those around me -
someone's wife ... someones' mother ... someones' nurse ...
and, after all these years
of achieving meaning thru the lives of others,
I now ask myself who am I?
Who the fuck is Frizzy?
Oh to be like the redhead in that photo -
she looks to me like she belongs there,
like she's got a destination, a meaning.

urban beauty

Sunday, September 14, 2008
Beauty - a thing seldom seen
Yet, held by all.
It lies, within souls,
waiting to surface,
but requires, to survive,
the mingling of spirits.
Only love can draw beauty
from its dark womb.
Love, such as that embodied
within the photographer's eye.
Visit the flickr site of
my friend, the krazy genius
to see more like these ...

just for awhile

i'm blogging here for awhile.



The 3-D approach to living: deflate, deflect, or depart (from) negative energy/emotions.

We own our emotions ~ no one else does. That means they're our responsibility to modulate ... filter ... alter. No one makes us feel a particular way; only one's self does that. We create it ... we gotta live with it, ride it, so to speak.

So ... if you find yourself harbouring a bad attitude ... then change it! its no one else's fault, but your own. So ... remember change the things we can change, accept those which can't change.

I have a quote on my desk that I read often (and yet- never often enough) it says,
"No one is responsible for your happiness- EXCEPT you!"

The older I get- and the more people let me down- the more I realize how and where I pin my hopes on THEM...rather than looking to myself to make things right, and good, and satisfying.

Ultimately my happiness, success, joy, and fulfillment depend on me-
At once it's a tough thing to accept, and yet very liberating once I do.

My best to you friend- and in all things, make yourself happy.

-me :)

I am with Cora on this one - I always keep myself in check with my daily attitude...I just go to the mirror, smile, count my blessings, and forget the small stuff.
