Musings of Mine (2)
Quote of the day:
The least movement is of importance to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble. -Blaise Pascal
1. The Dark
The ideas that knock on doors of reasoning can occur at night time. In the dark bowels of cloudy skies, a shift in the direction of winds may not go unnoticed, like a missing leg from a dinner table. At this odd hour, past midnight -with quiet streets, and not so quiet roads, the only other noise echoes from deep within. A certain element of the night is the stillness of thoughts, a frame by frame replay of events. Sometimes the darkness creeps in from outside, and the only saving grace is the breaking of dawn.
2. It Only Takes A Minute
One minute, is all it takes. Its short enough to go unnoticed, but a lot sure can happen within that time. The truth is life changes every 60 seconds. What can you lose, what can you gain...in one minute. It only takes a minute to cut down trees, usher new babies into the world, get soaked by rainfall, lose sight of one's dreams, and war and devastation to occur. A minute is everything. A lot can change, it only take a minute.
When it rain my mood changes. Its like the weather and my thoughts merge into a frequency that remains static -as long as clouds and rain remain. As soon as the clouds clear though, everything vanishes, but before then I savour the moment. The smell of rain, of raindrops on leaves and trees. The ritual of cleansing that accompanies each rainfall, a rebirth or reawakening, the renewal that occurs -refreshing like a warm bath after a long day. It rains...it rains.
Peace. Love. Light*
