Does anything happen by coincidence?

“I don’t think that anything happens by coincidence… No one is here by accident… Everyone who crosses our path has a message for us. Otherwise they would have taken another path, or left earlier or later. The fact that these people are here means that they are here for some reason”…”



Time has a way of standing still . . .

“Time. Time has a way of standing still during the moments that define one’s life.
The first kiss, the birth of one’s first child, a paralyzing car accident, hearing of the death of a parent, the last kiss.”



more image than a shade . . .

Before me floats an image, man or shade, 
Shade more than man, more image than a shade; 
For Hades’ bobbin bound in mummy-cloth 
May unwind the winding path; 
A mouth that has no moisture and no breath 
Breathless mouths may summon; 
I hail the superhuman; 
I call it death-in-life and life-in-death.


look right through me . . .

“Made to feel the way that every child should
Sit and listen – sit and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me – no one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson
Look right through me – look right through me . . .”
