Check-in #1

Hey guys. How’s it been hanging?

It’s been one of those days. Eyes looking upwards, seeing the otter fur-patterned clouds and not registering some degree of contented awe. The reality? It’s been raining the whole day and the sky’s in perpetual overcast the past week. Probably a good thing though since I like the rain.

It’s worth remembering that the rut I find myself in eventually levels out, even if it’ll find me again down the road. I keep telling myself that the bad days make me stronger. I don’t know if it’s true, I mean, I’d like to believe it.

I’m just playing with words and ideas here. Perhaps it’s during these times we should reevaluate how far we’ve come and where exactly we want to go. Dreams change all the time and not all survive our equally changing perspectives as we experience what it means to be alive.

Most dreams are obtainable with dedication, or sheer stubbornness if that’s your thing. Things get real when you make them into goals otherwise all we’ll have are castles in the air. It would be an injustice to throw in the towel because of a tough couple of days if not weeks, however miserable.

Anyway, here’s to the hard times. Don’t forget all the times you spat out the dirt and kept moving. Maybe it’s in that same dirt we rise up as our better selves.

I’d like to take the time to give my heartfelt condolences for the victims of the recent school shooting at the high school in Santa Fe, Texas.

Not forgetting the Palestinian protestors who died/ were injured in the clashes with Isreal four days ago.

There isn’t much that I can do but know that I have you all in my thoughts. For what it’s worth I’ll pray and hope that you all begin to heal and grow stronger in the face of tyrany, what ever it may look like to you.

Wishing you peeps the best possible futures, and hoping you’re all safe.

Devina.

  1. Kind words to yourself and us. Sometimes, our mood is in tune with the weather and the rain has a tenancy to make us melancholic… Hope it passes soon, both the rain and melancholy… our hearts need to shine.
    My thoughts also go to all those whose hearts are broken today and may they all heal…
    Hugs to you xoxoxo

    • I love the rain but I think too much so, it’s not conducive to work 😛 It’s events like these that make our hearts hurt in the worst ways and dim our hopes but if it’s anyone who uplifts them it’s the survivors that grow strong again and make a difference.

      Thank you, Juls. I need them hugs more than ever now and especially after Anthony Bourdain’s passing on Friday 😦 A kindred spirit he was, way ahead of me of course, but someday I’ll go those places.

      *hugs back you tightly*
