Today many East Asians celebrate Lunar New Year.  Each year has a zodiac animal, and this year’s animal is the dog, with earth as the predominant element.  https://chinesenewyear2018.com/zodiac/dog/

Have a blessed and Happy Lunar New Year everyone!





Happy Saint Valentine’s Day and Blessed Ash Wednesday

Today is Saint Valentine’s Day, named after at least one Christian Saint with this name.  The Saint(s) represent the freedom of God’s love.  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Valentine

Today is also Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent.  In the Catholic tradition, people go to a Mass service and receive a cross shaped blessing made with palm branch ash.  The day is also honoured by fasting from junk food and meat, hence the tradition of Pancake Tuesday or Mardi Gras.

Moments with Pure Empowerment

My Joyous Feature

That pure feeling puts that bonding moment into a source of wisdom. There’s that joy leading in that better life. Love puts that sound into pure pleasure. Bringing it into a much better start. A passion of love will put it into the test.

A better quality will take an unbelievable feeling into that comfort point. That ability of hope will fare in that peaceful standard. Hope will cherish things into that perfect life. Opening up with a full potential that can let it flow all the way. Like a physical structure in motion.

An empowerment takes that journey into a world that’s shall lead into that perfect path. Following the perfect path will involve it into that special place. A place that bring some comfort inside and out. By moving along that path a mind can be a map. It’s like listening to the substance of soul.

Moments ahead…

Whispers in the Night


Whispers in the night
bring memory into full focus.
A series of never-ending still photographs
posed and etched onto, and into my mind.
Perhaps fading a bit in color, smell, taste, and touch
but never completely melting away.
