Finding Peace

Source of Inspiration


You will not know peace
until you understand your
connection to the Earth,
nor will you know your heart
until you give it away.

Some things one must lose
to know their value.
Fool’s gold is scattered
Choose carefully
or go alone
until you find
that which you
had all the time.

Silent Embrace by landandcolors

for Mrs Hsg : Is there a language for the past, the loss of self?alzheimer2

An alphabet for desires we once had? The memories?
Can you teach me once again the rhythm and the beat,
The meter of the poetry that taught my flesh & mind
To learn the verbs and tenses of experience and knowledge?
And what of those nouns? The names of things, the faces
Of all those precious souls I’ve lost among the neurons of my fading world?

I used to hold so dear these complicated notions and ideas,
I have forgotten them, and each day sends me after other words
I’ve lost among the spaces of my past like travels
In a world of myth or truth I once shared but now are gone for good; as if
I were a quester after strange days of my former life
That’s now become impossible; a mystery, a novel of desire & romance
I wish I could remember now, or piece together, stitch up
In this blanket that I’m knitting for…

Oh! No,
I forget for whom I’m making this.

My mind’s in apathy, or, am I just forgetful
Of that human want and need for memory of who or what I am?
I keep forgetting who I am, am I a victim of a marginal affliction,
Else do I have some awful thing inside me eating up my memories?

So tell my Doc can you give me back my life?

I seem to have misplaced my thoughts among these photo albums.
I see these faces, but I don’t recognize them or their captions.
I know I should, this man, a stranger sitting beside me, tells me he’s my husband,
But I’ve never known this gentleman, and to tell the truth I find it distressing
And a little scary. Should I tell him I’d rather be alone just now,
Or should I play along and let him think I understand him?

Tell me, Doc I forget just who I am, and all these kind strangers around me, too. Apathy, yes, yes… I am numb and feel nothing one way or the other.

Can you help me, Doc, before I forget?

“Who am I, again?”

Notes: Mrs Hsg has a wonderful blog, Before I forget?, about her struggle with Alzheimer’s and its devastation, which many people face. Of course she is only at the onset of this dread disease that the scientists who study such things still know so little about. I’ve been reading her posts as well as reading the information on the site: Alzheimer’s is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behavior. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks. (Source:

Should I be counting calories? via /r/Fitness


Hello guys/girls,

I have started ‘seriously’ lifting probably for the first time now. Just finished my first week of SS after having done SL on and off. I’m 15 years old and I know I cant outtrain a shitty diet, even though I’m pretty sure my diet is definetly not shitty. I’m starting to get conscious about my nutrition, like for breakfast I usually make Oats (cooked in a pan with milk probably 300 ML of milk), 1 scrambled egg made up of 2 eggs (with bacon if I bought some) with around 300 ML of milk to usually sip on. But for lunch at school, that’s where shit hits the fan, I have no idea what to bring to school, I tried to make some healthy burritos but they didnt stay that well, so I usually just bring PB Sandwiches, drink lots of water and have a (tuna)salad. I always bring…

How Do You Take Advantage Of Your Day?

Energize Your Thoughts


You don’t have to wait for a perfect day to take advantage, by taking advantage of the day you make it perfect.

I don’t get 10 out of 10 everyday, some days I have fallen below average. However, I still do my very best to take advantage of each day. Believe me you can too. To take advantage of your day you cannot complain and as Maya Angelo said, “What you’re supposed to do when you don’t like a thing is change it. If you can’t change it, change the way you think about it. Don’t complain.”

I don’t know about you, but I have no time to complain. In fact, complaining is a waste of time and energy. Let’s take advantage of each day even when we don’t score “A’s”.

No matter how much I was able to get done yesterday, with today comes a clean slate and the…

Weekly Photo Challenge – Advenuture

Arl's World

Adventure At Sea

Headed out, the blue sea calls.  Where adventure awaits, with stories tall.

What will we find, out here in the ocean?  The boat tossing to and fro, the waves in motion.

Maybe a ship in a bottle, a very large fish  …or a lovely mermaid.  What is your wish?

So cast a line or take a seat, my friend.  We are headed out to sea, where adventures begin.


This post is part of The Weekly Photo Challenge:  Adventure

Thanks for visiting!
