Mr. Moon- a poem

282

The moon shines bright

In the dark of the night

Beckoning it’s beholders to dream

Of lovely days in purple haze

Sitting and wondering

What is it that life’s worth?

“Look at my craters”, says Mr. Moon

They run wide and deep

And so shall you be filled with them

And the rewards of life you shall reap.

Oh tell me, Moon-y

What is it like, to shine in the light of another?

“you let them shine”, says he to me

Till you find your own kind of lover.

Daily Prompt: Folly

via Daily Prompt: Folly

A “folly” means a “mistake”. Plain and simple.

Follies are things that all of us commit every day…well, almost.  Sometimes a folly happens and we don’t even know it. It may be as simple as forgetting to do a daily chore or giving your grandmother the wrong pill after lunch. Whatever it is, follies do make us improve ourselves, if we recognize their presence, that is; and ultimately help us better ourselves with each passing day so that we do not commit that same mistake, error or wrong again!

I do not think there is any such thing as a ‘big’ folly. Follies usually refer to small or tiny mistakes that do not cause any major harm to others, but they are mistakes nonetheless and must be corrected or apologized for.

…Sorry for any follies that I might have made while writing this piece!

 

How to Find and Support Trustworthy Journalism

Josh Stearns

If you are hungry for news you can trust, journalism that helps you make decisions about your community, reporting that holds power to account, then this is for you. This is my personal advice for people who want to support journalism that matters. It is just a starting point, it is not comprehensive, and it’ll become stronger and more useful if you add your ideas to it. Use the comments to add your list of newsrooms you subscribe to and support.

Now more than ever, it is important to our democracy that we seek out and support good journalism. Every person is going to construct their media diet differently, so any list I create will be incomplete. My goal here is to provide a framework for you to find the news that will challenge, inspire, inform and engage you.

The perfectly relaxed cat

Relax

When I saw the picture of a lying cat as the cover for the daily post on “relax”, I immediately thought of placing two pictures of my own house cat Matilda as a reply, specially because she’s the perfect example of somebody who is as relaxed as can be about life…she spends 18 to 20 hours of the day lying supine in a particular corner of the staircase and does not have a care in the world as long as she gets her daily meal and a comfortable place to rest in. Don’t we all wish life was as simple as this! These photos were captured by me recently for a university project.

The lyrics to JB’s “Cold Water”

Everybody gets high sometimes, you know
What else can we do when we’re feeling low?
So take a deep breath and let it go
You shouldn’t be drowning on your own

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

Cause we all get lost sometimes, you know?
It’s how we learn and how we grow
And I wanna lay with you ’til I’m old
You shouldn’t be fighting on your own

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

I won’t let go (I won’t let go, no, no, no, no, no, no)
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
I won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

[MØ:]
Come on, come on
Save me from my rocking boat
I just want to stay afloat
I’m all alone
And I hope, I hope
Someone’s gonna take me home
Somewhere I can rest my soul
I need to know

[Justin Bieber & MØ:]
You won’t let go (I won’t let go, no, no, no, no, no, no)
I’ll be your lifeline tonight
You won’t let go
I’ll be your lifeline tonight

[Justin Bieber:]
I won’t let go
I won’t let goEverybody gets high sometimes, you know
What else can we do when we’re feeling low?
So take a deep breath and let it go
You shouldn’t be drowning on your own

And if you feel you’re sinking,
I will jump right over into cold, cold water for you
And although time may take us into different places
I will still be patient with you
And I hope you know

I find these words ring so true for me and people my age. It is a song about friendship and being faithful to the person you love (or persons)..

I am grateful to Major Lazer and JB for coming up with a song like this. Lol!! (Basically because it restores my faith in humanity).

Peace!

There is a letter hiding

Inside this envelope.

Addressed in handwriting

As if etched….on

A print I recognize…..

Familiar marks I wished, at times, I never knew

Other times, I wished I had known better.

So are our lives…..represented

By this letter……

A relationship of a paper receptacle

With its four corners, glued folds

A flap that awaits closure

With many words waiting to be

Understood

You have added, perhaps

A final voice inside this letter.

An ending I search for

Mixed with the anxiety for the loss

Of the sound your words make.

And the question is

If I open this letter

Will reading it stir up all those summers

heated in our veins, or

Will its therapy send a cool breeze

To pacify all the seasons we have invested

In? ….Surely, the wind is unpredictable.

If the breeze picks up,

As it has done many times

I run…

Princess chelsea!

Yulia, what do you see in him?
Yulia, what could you want from him?

You’re the same age as me
And there’s nothing that I can see
No unified theory
That will convince me

Yulia, what do you see in him?
Painting lions on the back of a cookie tin
Is is better to be different than to be better?
Yulia, how can you be with him?

You’re the same age as me
And there’s nothing that I can see
No unified theory
That will convince me

That you are happy

Drawing food and little booklets

Someone fantastic. As usual.

“Have Your Cake and Draw it Too” – Food Illustrators Reflect on Taste and memory

I didn’t realise that it’d be landing in the real world so soon! Here’s my little contribution; basically an introduction to me and my drawing.

One of my primary motivations for drawing my food was documentation; usually when we go out for a meal it is to either to simply to have a lovely experience or to even celebrate, with friends and family.

When I look back at a foodie drawing – it often transports me back to that time and place; I am able to recall sights and sounds and smells at that location and better remember the whole experience.

Of course, the real trick is to not just draw a picture of the food, but to try to capture a…
