Let the sea set us free!

sailboat
Imagine we’re sailing happily together
out in the big blue sea
on a stolen sailboat from the yacht club.
We have to escape from the crazy life ashore.
No longer are we slaves to the technology tools
that are hijacking our minds.
Far away from traffic jams, mean bosses,
endless board meetings, and deadlines.
There’s absolute freedom in the open sea
where all our troubles are swept away
by strong winds and huge waves.
A place where we could hear our soul speaks to us
and set-sail our priorities in the right direction.
Time waits for no one and nothing stays forever.
What will remain is just the memories
of love and friendship from our
family and friends who have touched
our lives like the ocean waves.
Let the voice of the sea speak to us!
Let the sea set us free!

Time to PONDer

pond
I have always been fascinated
by ponds – big, medium or small. 
Some are natural,  others may come
with lovely sculptures or refreshing fountains.
But, my favourite is the pond that has healthy
well-fed Koi swimming in it.
I visited a Catholic church recently and
I was delighted to see a beautiful pond
with a statue of Jesus Christ.
And when I took a closer look
I was thrilled to see a group of energetic
Koi swimming in the pond.
Just watching the Koi makes me glad.
I feel peace within and at the same time intrigued 
by these amazing Koi, for they embody  
a  kind of quiet beauty and mystery.
And I can’t help but ponder
on the importance of
love, unity, and friendship.

Remembering Paul Curran

flowers9

A year ago, we received the sad and devastating news on the demise of our dear friend, Paul Curran.  Paul did not have his own blog and I had always looked forward to his weekly guest post over at Mark’s blog on Sundays.
If you want more of Paul’s stories, do hop over to CM’s blog where she has created a lovely space in memory of Paul. 
Today I would like to pay tribute to our beloved Canadian friend – a master of words and storytelling who had touched our hearts and made a huge difference in our lives.

“Thank you Paul,
for sharing your beautiful stories.
Thank you for all your
thoughtful, wise and funny comments.
You were sincere, kind & understanding and
it was truly a joy and blessing knowing you.
May you rest in eternal peace and
rejoice with the angels above.”
