Quote of the moment

Paulo Coelho

She would never see him again, but, for a few hours, in the autumn of her despair, she had ceased to be a faithful wife, housewife, loving mother, exemplary public servant and constant friend, and reverted to being simply a woman.

When the ink of my soul runs dry

Sometimes, when the ink of my soul runs dry,
when my heart is too hurt to sing, the words too painful to be said,
then the silence is my voice, the blue sky my hope,
the ocean is my tear,
the stars are my dreams,
the flowers my smile, and the birds my freedom.
Your Peace overflows.
The beauty of each day overwhelms me.

All stories or movies end with "happily ever after" which gives us a sense of security, that all is well and that the future is in our hands.
But I'm not here to promise you a golden future. I'm only here to make you aware of a world with all the uncertainties and insecurities that life is made of.
