Normal Service is NOT Resumed ...

Sometimes I get like this: so many words and thoughts rolling around inside my head, so many feelings in my heart ... yet I can't find a way to get them out onto paper.

It's not just a question of keeping things privately rather than publishing them here. I sit with my pad and manage at best odd phrases, a line or two of verse, a string of adjectives, a half-formed concept. It's frustrating, not least because writing has always been one of my great outlets.

I'm sure many of you know exactly what I mean.

It's as if all the thoughts and feelings, the fears and doubts and uncertainties, the hopes and wishes are all so ill-defined that they can't yet be pinned down and trapped within words.

I guess my (in)famous patience ("too patient", Helga?) will have to come into play again ... and maybe in due course it'll all start to settle down and the current internal chaos will be reduced to the sort of mild turbulence I can write about.


P.S.: I can't help wondering whether the Buddha ever woke up feeling grumpy and had One of Those Days. Unfortunately, I suspect he didn't

Lol... well, every once in a while a person has to rebell and stick their tongue out to the world and say "I'm not what you think I am, dammit!" And traits we practise with others we rarely seem to practise on ourselves...

In the meantime, Bud(dha)... don't be a grump!


Love, hugs and kisses from ♥♥HH♥♥

Q, Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, all the great prophets had lousy what can the rest of us expect?

Since you are always there for your friends, remember your friends are always there for you, Q....'kay?

I too get this way sometimes like tonight. Know what I want to say but just can't get it out the right way. Come to think of it, I would love to stick out my tongue at the world sometimes..

Even Buddhas are allowed their off days and a couple of hours of self indulgent grumpiness can sometimes work wonders!!
