Note to self.

Stop rushing.

Take time to breathe.

Before you are pulled asunder.

  1. I need to take my time, and stop trying to cram all the things I want to do into one day. It’s not that I need to do them, it’s that I want to do them. Write poetry, paint, compose a melody, read a book, besides that book read a little more of Thoreau….

    (P.S. I used asunder in a poem once.)

    • I know where you’re coming from! My frustration is my disorganisation! On the days I try to succeed the most, I positively fail … on the days I am accepting and calm, with lowered sights, I achieve more and even a little writing on top. I will hopefully get it right soon on a more regular basis! Thanks for commenting 🙂

  2. I used the verb rush in a recent poem, a difficult selection for me because I was trying to talk about shadows that surface (I could have used this one or emerge) when we think about past and present. I also find the word asunder interesting. I’ve seen it before but never never used it. Maybe one day. As for the subject, I think it is actual for a developed society, not the African. No rushing here! 🙂

    • You have thrown a different perspective on my words and I am grateful to you for that. 🙂 I LOVE the word ‘asunder’! Funny how we can have favourite words, don’t you think? Soporific … that’s a word I would love to use one day … when I think of being stood by a lake, the water inducing calmness. Ah, the love of words! Thanks for commenting 🙂

    • I know the feeling … hence my note to self! Hard though, isn’t it? Although I often feel like my feet are planted in mud and the rushing is getting me nowhere. 😦 Much reflection going on at the moment … things need to change! Thanks for your comment 🙂
