Words of wisdom

(Image Source: Bing)


"Your life is your life
Don't let it be clubbed into dank submission
Be on the watch.
There are ways out.
There is a light somewhere.
It may not be much light but
It beats the darkness.

Be on the watch.
The gods will offer you chances.
Know them.
Take them.
You can't beat death
But you can beat death in life, sometimes.
And the more often you learn to do it
The more light there will be.

Your life is your life.
Know it while you  have it.
You are marvelous
The gods wait to delight in you"
(Charles Bukowski)

New Year Wishes

(Image Source: Weheartit.com)

As the year gets ready to close I somehow picture it as the girl on this image. Tired, pensive, disheveled clothes, tangled hair adorned with a crown made of dried twigs and vines. Someone who's lived through many events. Someone who's seen both, good and bad. Someone who's been caught in the rain and laid to dry under a scorching sun. Someone who's lived to the fullest. Someone who now must go to rest and regroup.

This has been such a year for me. Exciting but quite exhausting. I welcome the snow and the shorter days.  I find it easier to slow down and organize my home during the Winter. I am looking forward to a new look inspired by this poster I found while I was doing my  Christmas shopping.  I fell in love with the vibrant colors and decided to have it framed. Isn't she just fun?

I can't help but smile every time I climb the stairs and see it.

It's definitely a far cry from the soft shades of pink I had lived with for so long

but I have a feeling red will be "the" new color for me and for Abby as well lol

In  any case, I wanted to sit for a moment and wish you a magical New Year. May you be happy and healthy and may your world be painted in colors that make you smile.
