Today is December 25, 2012

 

To many, ’tis Christmas Day

To others, ’tis 4 days after the world was “supposed” to end

To some, ’tis a lonely time

 

To me, ’tis a day where we give more than we receive, ’tis a day to  be unconditional in all our affairs, ’tis a day of gracious gratitude

 

 

Happy December 25, 2012

 

Welcome to a world of new beginnings, unexplored territories, and dimensions that might even boggle the mind.

May you all live each moment like it may be the last.

 

 

Lots of love and laughter,

Surrey Muse Featured On Local Connection

An excellent focus in on the highlights, the essence of what is known as Surrey Muse (coverage begins just after the 10:30 mark)…  Thank you to Local Connection and all those involved in putting this together.

Surrey Muse has blossomed as a thriving group in a very short period of time.  Recently having celebrated its one year anniversary, this is a place where creativity can be found in abundance, lively yet intimate, it is a place where local authors, poets, musicians and other artisan types can all be found mingling at the Surrey Muse monthly gatherings. Regular meetings are held at Surrey City Centre Library on the fourth Friday of every month, except December.

Shed light on the darkness, bring that darkness into the light.

 

We all have gloom,

We all have ghosts,

Spiders in our attic,

Skeletons in our closet,

All this darkness,

We must coax,

For life,

It is not a hoax.

 

Shed light on the darkness, bring that darkness into the light.

 

Exposure,

Taking away its power,

It all comes down to fight or flight,

No judgements, nor black and white.

True paths to freedom,

Happiness,

Joy,

Forever more,

These moments of pleasure,

These moments of bliss,

They come to us,

They come fast,

These moments,

They will not last.

This is when one can see,

One can feel,

Do not be aghast.

The balance of night,

The balance is day,

Heal from your past,

You’ll find your own way, time for brighter days.

 

Shed light on the darkness, bring that darkness into the light.

Meditation is key,

Meditation intrigues.

 

Providing peace,

Inner beauty.

 

Honouring thy self,

Knows no boundaries.

 

Diving in,

Trust, having some faith.

 

Standing together,

No longer alone.

 

Focus, strength,

Reduction of restraints.

 

Integrity,

Grow abundantly.

 

Meditation is key,

Meditation intrigues.
