Cat Haven

Went to a cat cafe a couple weeks ago. The cafe was purrfect! Got a few good photos of the cats. They were 12 rescue cats there. They were very cute. One was missing a leg. Which I found sad.


Sea Side Blues

The sea was calming
One wave came in and out
There was a cool breeze as well.
It was a nice day to be outside
The sand beneath my feet was soft
The breeze against my face smelt of sea salt
All my focus was on the sensations around me.
Drawing me in. Drawing me out.
Each sensation overlapping as I walked down the beach within reach of the water lapping the beach.


reawaken your senses

Close your eyes

take a breath

live in the moment

Accept the past

embrace the future

Surrender to the calm stillness within

Take a moment to relax

Reawaken your senses

Refresh your soul

Once you find the calm within let it consume your inner being

The tranquility of the moment takes your focus

Let this be the foundation for your peaceful awareness today!

Painting Glass

His voice haunts me in my dreams and follows me in my waking hours.

His voice haunts me in my dreams and follows me in my waking hours. Every object I touch sends pain through my body. There is nowhere I can rest. Nowhere is safe. Not even in my head. If only I could find sanctuary. I could find respite outside of my consciousness.

Tomorrow I move houses. It will hopefully be something I can look forward to.
The front hall is full of mirrors. Here I can see glimpses of his face. If only I could be free.

The diagnosis was psychosis which I struggled to grasp at the beginning.
It was a long way to recovery.

The hours tick by and the face of the clock became blurred.

Being so sensitive makes moving around a dangerous game.

There is no respite for me. Hopefully the new house proves less torturous.

“I’m going to make stronger, to face life’s tests” said my reflection.

“But why?” I asked my reflection.

“Because you have a heart of Gold.” was the response

I kept repeating what my reflection had told me. My reflection could now respond to me which was weird.

“Help me” I asked my reflection. It ignored me this time
“I need your guidance”
“Please, I am desperate!”
It was now ignoring me

“I’m going to make you stronger, to face life’s tests.” said my reflection in the mirror.
“But why?” I asked my reflection.
“I can’t stand this. When will it end?”
“You are stuck with me for eternity. You will never be alone.”

“How kind of you. I guess I’ll have to get used to talking to myself.”
“How long is eternity?”
My reflection began to flicker for a few seconds

“I don’t know. Stop asking me questions.” It responded.

“What is irony?” I asked
“You are going to have to figure that out by yourself.”
“I didn’t ask to be born.” I replied in protest.
“No one did. You are a human being not a doormat.” said my reflection.

My image suddenly became frozen. The sides of the mirror began to produce black smoke. A man’s image rose up to take over my own reflection.

He kept following me in my dreams. Always so close yet I could not grasp my consciousness when he appeared. I could not escape him. He was able to penetrate my every thought.
