this thursday


as i wake up to lightening and thunder
look out onto flooded streets
i give thanks for the rain
and pray for safety
and peace.

whispered assurance


even when you feel spent
even at your most fragile
the salty smell of the ocean
the glimmer of the sun on the waves
and the vastness of the blue above
offer a temporary tranquility
a whispered assurance
of good things to come

perspective


change the way you look at things
and the things you look at will change.

it is all the power of perspective

the ones we lose


many friends live thousands of miles away
and even though we rarely have contact,
i hold them close


with some, 
a flurry of emails once in a blue moon is all it takes to patch up the distance 
i smile wide
as a million happy memories flash through my mind


with some others 
when we do make contact
little do i recognise the person they have become
i wonder if i remembered them right
or if i was the one who got it wrong all along


and then there are those
we lose on the way
whose hands we let go
or who shut us out of their lives.



it is when we become strangers with memories
that broken 
somehow makes sense.

play time ahead


only a few weeks to go till the end of term and end of our academic year
so things are crazy busy right now
piles of marking
ambitious planning for next year
and tying up loose ends before we close.

looking forward now, more than ever,
to the play time ahead.

so far, yet so near


isn't it amazing to think
that despite our location on this planet,
despite how far away we might sometimes feel,
we are all under the same sky, 
we all feel the heat of the same sun, 
we all see the same moon 
and witness the twinkling of the same stars.
