I will love you without question,
until I am laid to rest
and even then, I won’t love you any less.
The time I spend whilst we are apart,
shall be an ache easily forgotten,
the moment you are returned to my arms.
Do not live your life, when I am gone,
as though it is over too.
Time could never erase, regardless of length,
the constant cycle of me and you.

Dear lettrists,

I have spent more time lately learning about people who overcome adversity, and especially those who have developed an inner strength that makes them untouchable.

Of particular note are those indelible people who have learned to “struggle happy,” which sounds strange but it’s a very real condition, and also the title of the book my daughter Ana recently crafted. I know that Struggle Happy, the book, would have never been done so well, without the inspiration of the lettrs app, and it’s amazing PenPals from across the world.

Sincerely,

I am not so easily uprooted.
My roots run deeper than your understanding of me.
I am not something to be kept.
Flowers are kept.
I am not a flower.
I do not have delicate petals;
my skin is weathered but it is not marked or discoloured.
I belong to nobody; I belong to me.
I live, I love, I breathe, I bloom without worry because time cannot hold me.
I am eternal.
I am forever.
I am me.

The daily grind can take a toll on the soul.
That much heavy will eventually weigh you down.
Pause.
Breathe.
Focus.
The world can wait.
It is important that you don’t forget who is in control.

I am feeling like i want to write. I enjoy and I will read self help books from time to time. On my own time and I felt the needed to share about what made me go "Aahh, okay I see..." My insight moments we can call them. I also came across some exercises that may help as long as I stay true and committed to doing them.
   
💪💁 in my words. Just gonna start randomly
Anger.... Try to focus on the constructive view it will SOFTEN the anger. Keep perspective, balance your own and others needs. Understand yourself better.
I need to listen fully before i judge a situation. People will want to help more if I talk to them respectfully. Strong anger makes you weak... I become out of control. Its up t...

It's not for an end to start.

A Good book never ends but left unwritten to be filled.

Don't hunt alone for the unknown treasure. A hunter has only one story but a treasure has 100 more. The stories never end but disguises themeselves in different shapes to find it around. The journey is unknown and the destination is not known but a mere hope to find the treasure is all what we know.

In the quest of these stories always leave the traces of the map you find out and show the light to others journey of dark and wild in the midst of a forest filled with mysteries to find out the treasure you are searching for.Don't get into the trap and you will be caught. Somepath seem to be long and some are...

Today I travel.

My journey began not at the airport or at a train or bus terminal. Earlier I have been to the library. That great shrine of both education and intellectual opioids. The place where one needs no chemical stimulus to loose themselves in a wonderful hallucinatory world of contentment and bliss.

I will not buckle my seatbelt when I begin this journey, yet I will remain firmly placed in my chair. I will not budge for the day. My now cold and empty coffee mug will remain here at my side, forlorn and forgotten, un-refilled. I don't need caffeine to stay focused. For I am far, far away now...

The noises that surrounded me begin to recede as the distance between us grows. The sound...

I read this today on Kindle and had to share

Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light thinks it travels, it finds the darkness has always gotten there first, and is waiting for it.

Evening coffee!

The city seemed to be different that day,
I was sitting at the book cafe which was located at the corner of the busy street.
It was less crowded & the silence along with the dim lights and aroma of the freshly brewed coffee had a soothing effect.

All I had was a cup of coffee & a book to accompany me. I sat listening to the music of the raindrops,  gripping the coffee mug tightly & turning the pages of the book.

Subconsciously thinking for whom this rain is falling for,
People say when it rains, it eases out pain, the sound heals the lonely soul.
Through the fogged window & the raindrops rolling down on the glass, i could see that everything around was turning grey, grey ...

The heads which are down to read quality books today,
Will rise soon by installing habits and virtues in them.

They might take time more than we assume, but they will rise towards the height where society will bow down. Not as gesture of just reverence but of pride. They will be able to conquer the threatening problems due to their creative imagination and ability to build system around it.

They will keep the needle of human race towards better future by the lessons they have learned from the great thinkers of past. They will find solutions not for the problems of their own life but for the threats of society as a whole.

Readers are tomorrow's leader.

**The Book Review**
"The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck"

'Introduction'
In an era where CEOs read 52 Books in 52 weeks, I finished this book within 3 months. Well the excuses say that this wasn't easy to break an habit of procrastination. But the truth is as follows:

"I read more than half of the book in the last week only."

This small realization clearly shows how easy it is to finish a book within one week.

'The Book Review'
The title may suggest you to be practical about life or be emotionless about some matters. But it's way more than that.

As they say, don't judge the book by it's cover, it has a lot to offer to a reader.

Even I personally believe that so many myths or misconcepti...

“When you live without someone for as long as I have, love becomes this abstract concept, something you attach to a memory. And when memories are that old, they feel like dreams, and you wonder if any of it was real, or if your mind created it all.”

BOOK REVIEW-#1

LOVE IN THE TIME OF CHOLERA
                             -Gabriel García Márquez

Before I sing my praises for GGM , I have to say that the English translator, Edith Grossman has done some fine work .
This is the first novel of GGM that I have read and his work does match his  reputation.This novel however doesn't have much of magic realism for which he is most famous but it is a meditation and study on relationships.With words that may have been written not in ink but in honey,this novel explores love in all its facet.

On the surface it is a love triangle spread over a half century presumably in Columbia's Cartegna de India at around the late 19th and early 20th ...

Sat amongst the settled dust,
all the painful memories of us remain.
I have to fight the constant urge within me to settle too,
no longer wanting to be the person I once was with you.
My body aches,
I move,
I bleed,
a life from which I can never seem to escape.
Another piece of me,
another piece of us,
gets added to the settled dust.

I wondered why
i questioned, every word that ever came out in that direction.
I went back and forth between the meaningless conversations,
all the teasing and jokes and mocking interactions.
I read, i surfed, i searched, i looked!
I thought for hours and hours
and Blamed you, me , world, time, a bottle of beer , situation and god knows what!
only to clearly see, why?
why?
there's no answer.
simple. it is what it is.
my sanity fell down on the floor and scattered in million pieces.
the bulb of knowledge and wisdom broke!
the time took a hillarious turn
and I felt nothing but numb
though the million pieces are making their way back home.
causing damage and havoc!
wait till the blood run stale,
...
