Romeo, Romeo where the dickens are you?!!!!

Romeo: (to Juliet, touching her hand)
If I profane with my unworthiest hand
This holy shrine, the gentler sin is this:
My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand
To smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.

(A little further on)

Romeo: O then, dear saint, let lips do what hands do:
They pray; grant thou, lest faith turn to despair.

(And ……)

Romeo: Then move not while my prayer’s effect I take.
(He kisses her)

Where the blinking heck are the modern-day Romeo’s?

“Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo…………………………………………………………………………….?”

A Quote October 16th 2012

“When you get older possessions once given in an act of love become less important to you. Celebrating your love becomes less expensive, less on an event and more personal. But let me tell you from a 54 year old man to a young person like yourself, you truly know you are in love when you wake up one morning, look at the person lying next to you and believe that you can accomplish anything in your life with their love and their encouragement. If the person you love encourages you each and every day to be creative and daring then you really are blessed with love.”
~The man at the Jewlerry shop.

Sonnet 116

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments; love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.

O no it is an ever-fixed mark,
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.

Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

William Shakespeare

He just knew didn’t he?!!!! xOx

Thoughts of the week: The hardships of being a creative….a few words.

I am a starter – never a finisher.

I do not stick to one job.

I abuse the sad times – ignoring the good.

Often craving a desperate sob.

Emotions are the be all and end all;

My life’s inspiration they are.

Dreams are the release of what’s locked away

Never in reach, but always a far.

With  multiple personalities;

A planner that always wanders away.

A singer, a writer, an actress and more

Living for the future never-ceasing the day.
A song can either tear me apart

or make me erratically happy.

Yet I sleep with my ipod blasting in my ears.

Wishing for productions, performances, and tears.

I do not think logically, mathematically or scientifically.

I do not have structure, I cannot make plans.

I can represent a character, whether novel form or film.

Often forgetting reality, loosing grip in my hands.

Yet I’m so very glad of my grounding

The foundation that gets me through.

Of faith and love and friendship.

I’d be nothing without any of you.

Home….A Poem

Home is ‘where the heart is’
Home’s where I belong
Home is just for you and me
Home is where you are

I could travel north or south
Or east or west that’s sure
But always where my heart will lead
Is home as there you are

I don’t see home as bricks
Or cement, or stone, or water
Home is a foundation;
The love that keeps us together

Home is ‘where the heart is’
Home’s where I belong
Home is just for you and me
Home is where you are.

Two poems from the heart

“Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore is winged Cupid painted blind”.
William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Nights Dream.

A heart’s plea.

A heart deprived
a soul detached
forever waiting and
never matched.

Often intertwining
in passion-less flings
never leading to love
nor exchanging rings.

One simple wish
to be loved in return
never having to change
not having to earn.

To be wanted and needed
and respected with joy
to eventually find
the one, her boy. Her hope, her love
the one she dreamed of sent from above.
A heart once broken, a soul once lost
a compatible union softly melting the frost.

A proposal occurred
a few years down the line
a future for both
an investment of time.

A vows committment
is a heart’s final plea
to rescue its soul
joining in matrimony.

The marriage begins.

The binding of rings
entices forever
igniting a passion
securing two hearts.

Yet love will be lost
One year from now
as a marriage sets in
two people depart.

For forever to last
a committment to keep
with your mind not your eyes
seek what lies beneath.

I’m feeling a little lost this week, like I’ve stepped out of my own bed but walked into the wrong life. I seem to be straying from my comfortable and happy path of life and I’m not completely sure as to how or why this has happened.

So I turned to research for some advice….big mistake.

Each post was written by different people with different life experiences: there where doctors, psychologists,  buddhist teachers and normal people who have gone through difficult situations. Yet the differences between each person didn’t account for the fact that each post shared one single point:

In order to find your way you have to change who you are as a person!!

At first I thought, yes ok that could make sense….I’m feeling lost because I need to change who I am.  If I was change who I am and how I acted then my life would be happier and I would be on the ‘correct path’ right?


I have studied psychology, I have studied counselling but as a normal person who seeks to be back on my path, I have realised that posts like the above mentioned are a waste of my time. I do believe that every person should be aware of how themselves and their words and actions can effect those that are around them and I would definitely class myself as a person who has a high level of self awareness…I’m always apologising for things that aren’t even my fault.

But being aware of myself isn’t helping me find my way back to my happy place. 

There are short-term solutions: wine, cigarettes, crying, binge-eating….but none of these push me back in the right direction. I can’t explain why I feel so lost, so emotional; I cannot explain why everything is so much more difficult to deal with this week, but I do know that I can start finding my way back by reminding myself of the awesome feeling of love. 

So tomorrow I am going to start my day with a Bible reading, a kiss from my fiance and a great cup of coffee. I am going to listen to music and read books. I am going to eat good, healthy food and drink lots of water. I am going to enjoy every conversation I have with my fiance, family and friends. And once the day has ended I am going to say thank you that I have had a day experiencing love. 

I know that once I stop focussing on why I feel lost and start enjoying that which I love…I will find my way, as the person I am, back to the place that I long to be.

I’m starting to feel better already =D

What God wants you to know…..

I saw this today and thought it was so lovely, and so true; I just had to re-post it….

“Your task is not to seek for love, but to seek and melt all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it. God loves you with the very air you breath, the very light that touches your skin, the very ground that supports you. Love is everywhere – melt your barriers and you will have love in abundance.”
~What God wants you to know.

The Rainbow..A poem

When you see a rainbow
Sit and think of me
And my promise to protect you
And fill your hearts with glee

With love and adoration
To you my child I hold
But at the bottom of this rainbow
Is not a pot of gold

I have so much more planned for you
A life of happiness
So follow me and trust my word
And you’ll truly blessed
