SoulCollage.

That's a shout out to my spiritual buddie, not having patience for stuff like this myself, thumbs up to her for her curiosity.

Hmmm...let's bathe in this verbal beauty. Nice.

Perseverance is indeed soul's best friend. Naieve. Which is a not so nicely sounding synonym for innocent and genuine.

I will celebrate those concepts today. Join me.

Re: Word of Today

Waylaid.

“At unexpected points in life, everyone gets waylaid by the colossal force of recollection. One minute you’re a grown-ass woman, then a whiff of cumin conjures your dad’s curry, and a whole door to the past blows open, ushering in uncanny detail. There are traumatic memories that rise up unbidden and dwarf you where you stand. But there are also memories you dig for: you start with a clear fix on a tiny instant, and pick at every knot until a thin thread comes undone that you can follow back through the mind’s labyrinth to other places.”
(Mary Karr in The Art of Memoir)

Re: Word of Today

Aw..Sky party is a specific event, some greater than others. But if you throw a party, I am there. Like..book party. Phil party. Semantic party. Potluck. Weird tunes party. Or symphonic party? Anyone?

Falsification.
