Have you ever chased the sunset
So deeply in love
That you forget
Everything
Because the only people who exist
In that moment of time
Are you
And him
Chasing the sunset
Recollections
Of the burdens
Brought by life
Fade into a past
That no longer exists
Your only intention
Right here
Right now
Is to chase
Until you reach
The sunset

Credit goes to my beautiful teenage niece for taking the fantastic photographs of the sunset today!

One little boy
Wanders like a lost soul
Unsure if he wants the world to look
Or just leave him alone

His dad will refuse
To accept something’s not right
And rather than be calm
He’ll just shout and fight

The more this keeps happening
The more the boy reacts
One day he may decide
To never come back

Mum has always known
That he’s not your average boy
And she’s trying to find
A way to bring him joy

But she feels like she’s failed him
Life is meant to be good
All she sees is a sad little boy
Who’s misunderstood

Dad doesn’t want to speak to him
Like he purposely done wrong
How will he get through this
How can he be strong

Unconditional love
Is what’s most in need
Patience and understanding
Will help him free

The worries and troubles
That toil through his brain
The little boy needs to end
The relentless strain

But mummy promises
She will always be there
Regardless of the drama
A commitment to care

My little boy
We’ll make it through
Please remember always
My everlasting love for you

No matter how many times I watch an episode of Sex and the City I never get bored! I could actually watch it everyday of the week.

So here are my top 10 favourite Carrie Quotes.

Number 1 has to be this. And yes, I am looking for the same thing! Aren’t we all…

‘I’m looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t-live-without-each-other love.’

And here’s number 2. Don’t think I’ve met that person to stand still with yet. Or maybe I have but don’t realise? OR maybe HE doesn’t realise!!!

‘I’ve done the merry go round I’ve been through the revolving door I feel like I met somebody I can stand still with for a minute and… don’t you wanna stand still with me?’

And if you want to sum me up in a nutshell, just take a read of number 3!

‘I was a huge fan of being anywhere you could smoke and drink at two in the afternoon without judgment.’

I actually avoid going into Starbucks in Westfield because I really do think this, and have been known to say … Do they think they’re in Sex and the fucking City or something? 😀 But seriously, haven’t they got wifi at home? It’s freaking 2013 for goodness sake! Here’s number 4…

‘I used to think those people who sat alone at Starbucks writing on their laptops were pretentious posers.’

Number 5 I’m probably at serious risk of! But I’m shameless and don’t give a damn! I always think what’s the point in either not expressing or showing what you think or feel? Whether it be in a relationship or otherwise. Life’s too short. Oh dear, I’m probably that psycho girl who tells her life story and declares her undying love on the first date!

‘When men attempt bold gestures, generally it’s considered romantic. When women do it, it’s often considered desperate or psycho.’

Number 6 has me hoping I’m not feeling like this in a few months time… Not that I’m desperate or anything! Lol!

‘The longer I sat at that table, the more alone I felt. And it really hit me: I am 35 and alone!’

We should all probably take a leaf out of number 7. Would certainly ease the pressure we put on ourselves.

‘Sometimes we need to stop analyzing the past, stop planning the future, stop figuring out precisely how we feel, stop deciding exactly what we want, and just see what happens.’

Number 8, I want to be that woman, is it too late? *looks around expectantly for an answer!*

‘Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free til they find someone just as wild to run with them.’

The older we get the more life can feel like this… Number 9

‘When you’re young, your whole life is about the pursuit of fun. Then, you grow up and learn to be cautious. You could break a bone or a heart. You look before you leap and sometimes you don’t leap at all because there’s not always someone there to catch you. And in life, there’s no safety net. When did it stop being fun and start being scary?’

And at number 10, here’s hoping!

‘Eventually all the pieces fall into place….until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment, and know that everything happens for a reason’

We bypassed the
Champagne
And went for
Comfort
In the
Cow
If it was not for those
Commitments
We would still be
Cuddling
Now
Settled deep in the
Couch
While
Candles
Burn down low
And you
Cradle
Me in your arms
While I stroke your leg so slow
Am I
Crazy to
Consider that
Life is about this
And I melt at
The thought of you
Giving me your kiss
As I listen to your heart beat
Steady and secure
I wonder if you’ll abandon all
Control
And break through
Those tough walls
When you show me
Caring
Moments
Nothing can
Compare
To a
Cuddle
In the
Cow
Come on
Let’s go back there

My best moments over the past few days are….

The glorious blue sky over the weekend. What’s better than waking up on an October morning and not only seeing a blue sky, but going outside to find that heat of the sun matches up is a seriously good thing!

Visiting my friend who is an artist to discuss the exhibition that we are having! (Excitement!!!) but having a look at the pieces he has put years into is just magical. Listening to the concept behind it and what they represents is mind blowing.

Eating food for lunch today without questioning the ingredients. This is a big thing for me as I have suffered from anxiety over the past few years. Even though I learnt how to deal with the panic attacks, the ‘food issues’ (as I call them!) have been brushed under the carpet so I go around avoiding things. But today I just went for it!!!

Come along
On a journey
To a place
Where never a cloud
On the horizon appears
Dancing across sand dunes
Shining energy
Glistening on skin
To reach the waves
That lap gently
Over feet
At least a mile
Of pensive walking
And in the background
Children play
Families feast
Lovers kiss
Senses explode
The sights
The sounds
The smells
A starfish in the sand
A song
That insists
The night will be good
Fragrant aromas
Meander through the air
Rest
In shallow waters
Tiny fish
Swim around and over
As if the body is one
With the earth
Vibrant chiffons swirl
In oranges and pinks
Reminiscent of
A sun that will sleep
Under the glimmer
Of the full moon
That is resting
On the water
The only sound
To be heard
Is that of a lone guitar
Strumming the song
Of the Gitano
The sky
A sheet of black velvet
Scattered with diamonds
Holding close
Sultry dreams
That
The one
You
Adore
Whispers
In your ear
Welcome to
My Happy Place
