Where Secrets Are Art

February 28, 2012


Every Sunday I read PostSecret. (PostSecret is an ongoing community art project where people mail in their secrets anonymously on one side of a homemade postcard.) I have been a fan of it for many years. I used to save the ones that I really liked but computers crash and I’ve lost most of them. […]

That melody there will make you happy, they say. I am, I tell them, thank you for the advice. You don’t understand, they insist. Listen, for goodness’ sake! To what? Are you ignorant? You know what we mean, and all that jazz. Maybe someday. Maybe not. Who knows? Now is the time! You’re not getting […]

Read the Sign, Kid.

February 25, 2012


When you run into so many of them that life seems to be but a series of coincidences, you tend to stop believing in that term. It becomes so commonplace that it isn’t really a coincidence anymore. Experiences and events are interwoven with threads of synchronicity. They appear to be connected in a deeper, or, […]

Time-less People

February 23, 2012


This popped out at me a while ago, but now I’ve really had enough. It was a close friend’s birthday and, as I saw her Facebook “Wall” fill up with birthday greetings, I knew the odds were that I’d inevitably see this one. And I did. It said, “HBD.” According to me, this is not […]

Lovers & Haters

February 13, 2012


It’s a great day to use as an excuse to celebrate love, but the hype that surrounds it is almost on par with that around New Year’s Eve. There’s too much pressure on making this day special. It’s almost like no matter what else you’ve done the rest of the year, if you fail someone […]

I have an arch nemesis at work. Yes, I have an arch nemesis, no I do not feel lucky. I dodged a bullet a few days ago. The Demoness stood in front of me flipping through her wedding invitations. A cold chill ran through me, probably the Angel…

A person I love upset me greatly and I gave in to Facebook’s “unfriend” option. I went ahead and removed them from my “Friend List”. I did not block them so that they could still see my activity on mutual friends’ walls. Oh, the wonders of the subconscious mind. Now, I never accept friend requests […]

Re:Defining Moments of Clarity

February 9, 2012


Reading my journal made me take a step back. I realised I’m teetering dangerously close to falling back into futile patterns. I have been slowly losing sight of what I figured out was important, losing sight of what felt good, of living life in a way that values it most. I’m inching back to doing […]

Mosaic People

February 8, 2012


When I saw mosaic flooring in the public Baths of Caracalla in Rome, I was in awe. Each little piece of that flooring was carefully placed to create a design on the floor. The closer I looked at it, the more I realised how painstakingly they must have been placed in those times when factories […]

Sometimes change is necessary. Sometimes you have to do what you never do and put your foot down. It may take time and it may not be easy, but it must be done, for your good, so that you like the person you see in the mirror. It’s important to refuse to do things you […]
