Bravest Moment

on the day when her grandchildren will be sitting on her lap asking for the bravest thing she has done, she will be looking back at this moment. she's in no danger. no noise. no death-defying acts. but with peaceful tree-whistles, lullaby-like bird-tunes, embrace-like forest air. and her heart and mind who were both dauntless enough to walk out of a life in… Continue reading Bravest Moment

Shine (Inspired by Yellow by Coldplay) Just like the glorious yellow sun, darling, you are made to shine. Remember you’ll not remain hidden among the black-veiled night sky.
