” Yet how can we hope to learn from the past without making the effort to preserve and conserve those valued products of it that have survived? All told, the idea of ‘Heritage’ remains a topic capable of arousing powerful passions.”
I love to wake in the morning when the rest of the neighbourhood is indoors minding people’s business.
The feel of that glorious silence riding the back of darkness envelopes into a peaceful retreat.
When the birds are chirping with no disturbance from traffic;free to not only roam but to conquer the air waves.
The monotonous drip drip dropping of a therapeutic rain makes me smile in content that I am indoors and not drenched in getting home before day break from a fete or a malicious broomstick meandering through keyholes rendering more than nuisance into people’s lives.
“Losing someone you love is like a death, except you know that person is still alive…and has the potential to be happy with someone besides you. So it’s grief with a painful twist.”
I need healing the type that touches your soul.
I need some well meaning fire, oh so very bold,
To awaken the dead bones like Elisha of the old.
To strengthen my core against any magma of hatred frightening to erupt into a hole,
0f contaminated fumes of jealousy exhausts; a series of mould.
Dangerous leeches threatening because they sold
Their freedom for material gain and want Noirfifre to join their fold.
Let that protection circle like a vulture around my being and scold
All their wicked intentions so that they will never cross my threshold!
“If you don’t like the way someone treats you, then change it. If you carry on with it, then you are telling that person it is Ok to treat you like that.” Dorothy Kooman
Hello book world, we are having another go at Top 5 Wednesday with:
March 15th- Books You Felt Betrayed By
–Beware the Ides of March! What books (or characters) did you feel betrayed by, for whatever reason…big or small
Let us dive into it?
1. The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
“Is that it?” I said after finishing the story. How can a book which features on 98% of Classics books to read, fell so flat. I expected more, I needed more. I needed Gatsby to be more than a love-sick puppy and I needed Daisy to just be more than she is and for the love of narrator will Nick grow a pair and stick up for himself.At least he had a shred of humanity in the end.
Tess of the D’Urberville left me with a mixture of feelings. I hated the way the story progressed but at the same time I was intrigued by the writing style.
