Journey To Happiness

“Happiness is to be found along the way, not at the end of the road, for then the journey is over and it is too late.” ~Robert Updegraff

“The road to happiness lies in two simple principles: find what it is that interests you and that you can do well, and when you find it put your whole soul into it-every bit of energy and ambition and natural ability you have.”
~John D. Rockefeller III

Beauty’s Shadows

“Find beauty not only in the thing itself but in the pattern of the shadows, the light and dark which that thing provides.” ~Junichiro Tanizaki

Fly Free, Into Solitude

The silence is deafening, full of loneliness, emptiness
I wish to go away, flying free to the sea
Listening to the waves, my soul is renewed in solitude©

Military Memorial

Near the site of the former Air Force Base in Myrtle Beach, SC, sits this memorial site for Veterans. Along with this, there are multiple fighter jets and a repurposed, metal statue created by a local artist. All sits on a beautiful wooded piece of land.

Circle of Life

 

We’re born, we live, we die- It is a natural part of life

A child that depends on its parents to survive this world

Striving to become self sufficient and desiring adulthood

Only to become an adult and wanting to relive its youth

Searching, always searching to find what is life’s purpose 

Creating within ourselves desires, dreams and passions

Always working towards happiness and hope in tomorrows

But, do we ever really find what we so desperately look for?

Riches abound, things are plenty and all our needs are met

Yet, always searching, never content with what we have

Looking for love, discovering loss and feeling much sadness

Pain looms and mingles with the emotions we wish to forget

Aging, growing weaker as wasted time keeps disappearing

Until, it reclaims us, a vessel used for its silly circle of life©

Surrounding Of Solace

“The perpetual movement of the water, rolling from and to unknown destinations, the voices of the sea shield us from the raging furies and shrieking sounds of dystopian surroundings, creating an unwinding veil for stilled happiness, acquainting us with the gentle, cosmic rhythms of an extraneous world. They are a soothing relief and let us listen to the voices of our inner world. (“Voices of the sea” )” ~Erik Pevernagie
