Passion – It’s Not Just 9 to 5

August 3, 2016 0 Comments

The Passion flower is one of the most beautiful flowers I’ve ever seen. I like learning about flower symbolism so here’s a little bit of info I found interesting: Passion Flowers have been associated with the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ as well as the Passion of Christ. The ten petals and sepals, represented ten disciples …

The Here And Now

July 27, 2016 0 Comments

The sun sets today to rise again tomorrow and the moon has to come out every night. Flowers bloom and then wither away. The yellow bananas all turn swiftly black. Everything that is born in this world dies. All that surrounds us, regardless of how long it’s been here, will eventually turn to dust. So, …

Of Geraniums

I must have flowers in the vase, always, more than food on the table. When I was a kid, we lived very close to my school, so I’d usually walk or cycle. Whenever I walked, I’d try taking a shorter route which passed through a poorer part of town. And, everyday I’d walk by this …

I’ll admit that I’m bizarrely nervous about eating alone in a restaurant. I don’t mind eating alone at home in private, just not in a public restaurant/food court setting. I attribute this to my long-held belief that only sad, friendless, lonely people eat by themselves at restaurants. However, I half admire and half loathe happy …

‘The mind I love must have wild places, a tangled orchard where dark damsons drop in the heavy grass, an overgrown little wood, the chance of a snake or two, a pool that nobody’s fathomed the depth of, and paths threaded with flowers planted by the mind.’ I love this quote from ‘The Garden Party’, …
