This Pisces season has been wearing on me.Mentally exhausted.Longing for the rejuvenation of spring. Though I understand I can’t let the external affect me, it’s an ongoing practice.I have been performing mental gymnastics.I meditate, journal, and do the things “I know” will benefit my mental health. Sometimes, these are the very things we neglect whenContinue reading ““Take Care of Your Needs””
As the sun illuminates the Sagittarius zodiac,we’re called to shine the light on our inner hunter.To be bold, to search for your truth.Find your own direction. We’re asked to be lively, to be independent, curious, and pursue that thingthat sets you on fire.The Sagittarius centaur is a beast that’s hard to tame and ever soContinue reading “Sagittarius Season: Shine the Light on Your Inner Compass”
I only know the light because I’ve lived through the dark.My body, buried in the heavy, damp soil.Ready to decompose with the earth.Destined for more,My soul wouldn’t rest. Though suffocated by the soil,Spirit clawed its way through the dirt that tried to encapsulate it,simultaneously being kept alive by way of the earth’s minerals and nutrients.Continue reading “Sometimes I Float In Between”
Some folks relish the sunrises.The dawning of a new day. Glorious rays of sunlightthat beam with possibilities of what’s to come. But the sunset always feels like home. The grand finale beforeact II for the night. As it ushers in the inky deep blue, we can slink away into the darkness. This is where IContinue reading “A Sunset and A Second Wind”
In the mornings, I spend some time alone without any sound. The birds have been so active that I just listen to them for a bit as I get myself ready for the day. I light a candle. Or maybe incense. Stretch. Drink lime/lemon water, drink coffee. Interested in thought-provoking content and more high-quality photosContinue reading “Mornings Spent in Quiet”
Do you ever just sit with yourself? Come home without turning the tv on? Commute without listening to your headphones? Sometimes it’s nice to just be quiet; to not depend on external sounds for comfort. Can you be comfortable when it’s just you, your head, and the environment? Image captured by me at Bush TerminalContinue reading “You, Your Head, and the Environment”
Three drinks by my side. Because my emotions are running deep. How do I maintain a semblance of balance? Whiskey on the rocks, a band-aid for my pain. Green smoothie; I’m being healthy about “detoxing.” Water, to stay properly hydrated. Seems I will never be vice-free. Image captured by me.
In this life, I have died many times. Image captured by me at Green-wood Cemetery, Brooklyn
Sometimes I just feel emotionally all over the place. More of a, “still trying to figure it out” kind of feeling. Like, “what the hell am I doing? What’s happening in my life?” kinda thing. But something is happening at the moment, some sort of shift. I can only hope that maybe one day I’llContinue reading “Still Trying to Figure it Out”
I finally see the sun through the forest. Slivers of light make their way through the dense packing of the trees. A clearing is in the distance. But—there seems to be a magnetic force around me. That’s what it is right? That’s why can’t I step towards the clearing. … what else could be preventingContinue reading “I See the Light But…”
I saw the light with you; but also saw the underworld. We plunged into the darkness, ventured into the unknown. Something about it was so beautifully scary; intoxicating. But it was time to take a break, to embrace the light again. You made your home in the darkness, established your throne.
Don’t worry, my quiet and melancholy nature doesn’t always mean something is brewing beneath the surface.
12:11AM It’s June 6th; the first night I hear sounds of summer. Crickets chirp outside as I try to sleep but my mind is racing. Photo captured by me, NYC.
Sadness is my friend, sadness is my foe. Sometimes I can sit with it and let it be. Other times it bubbles to the surface and boils over, leaving a mess in its wake. And sometimes I let myself just be consumed by it; I submit to it. Photo taken by me at Green-Wood CemeteryContinue reading “Sadness is my friend, my foe”
Been spending time in the shadow as of late.Not sure what forces are at play,but there’s been a shift somewhere, something is unsettled.
Feelings are just that, feelings. It’s also because of them, that we do the things we do. It’s because of our feelings, our desires for one another, that we hope to execute shared dreams; that we invest and feed each other’s souls. What do we do when it all seems to be in jeopardy? WhenContinue reading “Own Worst Enemy”
So much time spent trying to be strong, when maybe we’re afraid.Or unsure.Or because we fear being vulnerable. But what if being strong also means being receptive?Understanding that emotions are complex and sometimes messy.That it takes strength to sort through these feelings and understand them better.As humans, we have a penchant for making things harderContinue reading “What is Strength?”
Trying to make sense of things and it just never happens.Some days or moments, I’m spared and can feel pure elation, happiness.Some days or moments I feel absolutely weary. Photo shot by me, Prospect Park.
Sometimes, a home isn’t a home; only a place to rest your head. Shot by me in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
It’s all unknown. We’re simply left with the desires of what we may or may not want in our lives – present and future tense. And then we make decisions. Shot by me in Prospect Park, Brooklyn
