One Of Those Days

Today, it's one of those days when I am reminded that I am human, vulnerable to external forces. I am sick and tired, literally and figuratively...physically and emotionally.

Today, it's one of those days when we say when rains, it pours....cats and dogs! I am drenched, soaked and cold.

Today, it's one of those days when I have to acknowledge the hurt, the pain, the sorrow. I have to go through the process of weeping and washing away the cobwebs of life.

The only thing that keeps me going is the sweet truth that this, too, shall come to pass...and what will not kill me will make me strong.

Tomorrow, I am sure the sun will show up and I will be basking in the warmth of the beautiful sunshine. That is for certain.

The Sea and Me

There is a mysterious bond between me and the sea and it holds me captive until eternity.

As I listen to the waves lapping on the shore, I feel my worries drowned, my sad thoughts effaced and my fears washed away.

As I walk along the shore, I find back the essential things I have forgotten, lost or left behind - happy memories, lofty dreams, audacious aspirations - like sea shells strewn all over the sand waiting to be gathered back in time.

As I look over the horizon, I see distant shores waiting to be discovered, beckoning me like a mystery - "Come, I am waiting."

I may be walking along the beach alone but everything around me keep me company - the whispering wind, the thunderous waves, the quiet sand.

The scene is so beautiful it hurts my heart to its very last strand.
