    I'm thinking this is relevant to me.

    I love being alive, one of the biggest reasons being that I still find splendour and wonder in all sorts of places. On my way to work, every single morning, I find so many interesting things along the way. Things I might have seen before, but not in the same way as I am seeing...

    It's All Beautiful Illusions

    Simplicity

    I remember watching Narnia, when Lucy stepped out from the wardrobe into virgin snow. Her eyes were wide, as a smile crept upon her tiny mouth. Her mind ran wild with the images before her. The simplicity of what she saw was like a dream. The colours more vibrant, the sounds...

    A Lustful Life Is A Life Lacking Luster

    I want to focus on an aspect of life that is paralyzed by addiction–that is, a subtle aspect of joy. It’s not that an addict can NEVER find joy. There are moments. But, I’ve found something returning to my life that I didn’t even realize had gone. The best way I can...

    Second Childhood

    Having my children has allowed me to do the things I never got to do as a child and has taught me so much about how to play, have fun, and learn about the world over again through the eyes of a child.

    I have a friend who is always happy, never upset or stressed over anything.  When I asked her a while back what her secret was, I didn't realize at the time that she was right.  She told me to blow bubbles and watch butterflies.  Now granted, I love animals and...
