One Year On WordPress Anniversary

It makes me happy to see that I have stuck with this, and it has helped lead me to discover that writing truly is my passion. Today I do not have a poem for you, but instead something I read and my thoughts about it. This comes from the book Direct Truth by Kapil Gupta. Although…

New Thoughts That Come With A Warm Breeze

We often don’t believe things are possible until we experience them ourselves. Even when we witness and physically see something that appears to be impossible, we are still left with our doubts. So perhaps this is why achieving your ultimate dream seems so impossible. You have not experienced it yet, as you haven’t reached it…

A Drifting Image

I wonder, from time to time, If I still happen to cross your mind? Because I have not forgotten you, and in my head your face often comes to view. Every time I hear the sirens in my city, I hope that no harm has come to you, pretty. And that would seem a foolish…

The Jar On The Highest Shelf

My love is only for you and no one else, so when you gave it back- I put it in a jar on my highest shelf. I’d look at it each day and admire what we had, and when I thought of the happy times I was never too sad. But every now and again,…

Evening Thoughts

Sometimes it is hard to be happy about what once was, when you long so badly for what could have been. Throughout your life so many people will come and go, and very few will stay for the long run. But if we always remain on “what could have been”, how can we ever move…

A Life Of Substance

Lately I’ve found myself having an overwhelming sensation that for most people life is based around one substance or another. My definition of substance may be a bit different from most. I see it as being anything from drugs, alcohol, or addiction to something we know inside is wrong. Things along that line. And of…

The “Meaning” of Life

Most people will hear the word philosophy and have images of famous people come to mind.  Gandhi, Socrates, and countless others that are lost in time.  But what truly is philosophy? It’s not a field that is only for the critical deep thinkers, although they tend to thrive in it.  Rather, everyone has practiced the…

Why do we dream? (from a mostly non-scientific viewpoint)

Some people have them, some people don’t.  At times they can be so vivid we are entirely immersed into them, other times we can’t remember them at all.  So for something that varies so much, what exactly is the purpose of dreaming? I’m certainly no scientist and tend to consider myself on the more philosophical…
