Sometimes

Sometimes late at night, when the world is quiet and I am finally alone with my thoughts, I realize why it is I cannot find the words to write for others.  You are the one who makes the words happen for me, you always have been. Why that is I cannot say for sure, but you bring this part of me alive like no one else has ever done.  I have not written here as much of late but the thoughts are still there.  My longing to share them with the world is somewhat uncertain these days,  but the feeling behind them is not. Sometimes late at night I realize all I want is to share them with you, my thoughts, my heart, all the parts of me I cannot seem to put to the page.  It is night here, the moon and stars filling the sky, while you greet the light of day and all it will bring.  May it bring only good things to you and may you, for a moment, hear some of those words whispered into the night as I drift to sleep.

Love and Books

Posted in Books, Love on January 26, 2009 by moragglimmerwitch

This year I rediscovered how much I love to read.  For some reason, however, I fell into a great rhythm of one book after the other. It was really neat how they just seemed to jump into my lap. For the moment, I have fallen into a lull, but I will definitely be getting back into the swing of things come January. One of the books I have been plugging along in is

Women Who Run With the Wolves

. Everywhere I turned this year, this title kept coming up. I don’t believe in coincidence, so I took it as a sign. Well, was it ever! I could not have tied it in any better to what I was reading than if I’d written it myself. Now, the great part is that this book is LOADED with Woman Wisdom, and the bad part is that, like women, it will take a lifetime to understand and figure out. And that’s if you’re lucky! I am enjoying it, though, and each time I pick it up, it speaks to me right where I am.

Tying into the book themes, I’ve really been struggling this year with Love; What is it really? Can I have it? Do I already have it and don’t know it? Do I even love myself? Am I open to receiving love from anyone else, or am I scared of being burned? You get the idea. A lot of questions. Have I found a few answers? Yes, I think I have, but as always, there remains a plethora of questions yet unanswered. I suppose time will have to tell me more on that.

Looking back over the year, I’d say I was on a quest. I didn’t know at the time that I even wanted to go, or even when I left, but that’s what it was. I’m quite sure, too, that I’m still on the quest, because I still have more questions than answers. Now I know, that seems to be what life is all about: realizing that the older we get, the less we know. Well, from the looks of it, I must be pretty old, ’cause I don’t know sh**! I just hope that this new year will bring about some enlightenment that I can wrap my head around.

So, here is a toast to all those moving forward into the new year. May we slow down enough to realize how blessed we are, to enjoy those things which make us happy and to treasure the people whom we deeply love.

The Heart Of The Matter

Posted in Feelings, Forgiveness, Life, Love, Moods on October 8, 2008 by moragglimmerwitch

Words that seem to come up deep from inside about “an old true friend” I have recently come in contact with

These times are so uncertain
There’s a yearning undefined
…People filled with rage
We all need a little tenderness
How can love survive in such a graceless age
The trust and self-assurance that can lead to happiness
They’re the very things we kill, I guess
Pride and competition cannot fill these empty arms
And the work I put between us,
Doesn’t keep me warm

I’m learning to live without you now
But I miss you, Baby
The more I know, the less I understand
All the things I thought I figured out, I have to learn again
I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But everything changes
And my friends seem to scatter
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore

There are people in your life who’ve come and gone
They let you down and hurt your pride
Better put it all behind you; life goes on
You keep carrin’ that anger, it’ll eat you inside

I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness
Even if, even if you don’t love me anymore
