dear everyone

ive been trying real hard to stay adrift. most days i feel somewhat blank and unspoken. i talk to strangers i forget. but i never remember not to be kind. thank you for the kind souls ive met in the year. the days may be most unpleasant but the comeback overrides the setbacks

i know one day will come

that i rise

thank you for letting me speak to my one and only college crush

and also for all the beauty and art i always see and appreciate

day by day

may all the glory be to god

he is the only healer giver protector and sole refuge

he is our strength

thank you

much love.


Past Reflection

i went to the town of Jioufen in the mid-afternoon of november, climbed uphill into the steep steps and prayed to the temple close by. 

an old Japanese man spoke to me as the guides kept warning about being careful, going down.. 

*** *** *** 

such lovely, quaint town of birds and wildflowers, of bustling trade and crowded buyers- in the midst of narrow streets, bright-landscapes, teeming smells and noises;

I hear a soft tune of melody from one of the mystical stores

   inside my heart it knows,


_ of mountain peaks, ghost-led towns
  and winding paths
