The night.

Expressions of my life - An evolution of art.

Where do I begin, story tellers must think the same thing silently as they choose their words carefully as to truly reflex their thoughts. As do I tonight 11p pst. I’ve a feeling my sleep patterns are shifting again, regardless tonight let’s look at the thing that’s been evolving today whilst the world spun.

first a little music for the soul and for those on their was to work, a little bus stop entertainment. This time let’s start with the close up and finish big, shall we?





Then possibly some written words pulled from a much larger piece I wrote a while ago.

Tread lightly on this summers breeze
In the dark of your heart
For it will consume all that you are
Leaving you but like a shell
Cast away by the sea
Eaten and plucked whole

Then we come to a pausing point, so let’s take a look…

Morning Haiku and Waka – Winter – November 26, 2014

Bastet and Sekhmet's Library

sylphs play in the snow
under the naked willow
making mighty drifts

wind in the snowflakes
swirling ’round the yard like sylphs
–  dancing wonderland

sitting by the window
snowflakes tumble in the wind –
whispering cold


the new season dawns
cold wind whistles winter songs
curled in a duvet
nostalgic music playing
and I think – let it snow

(c) G.s.k. ’14

Heeding Haiku with HA

Day three of the thirty days of gratitude finds me with a heavy heart.  Tonight, I went to the funeral home to offer support and comfort to my friend, Dina, whose 20-year-old son was killed in a house fire a few days ago.  It is a tragedy that I cannot wrap my brain around, and watching my beautiful friend go through this unimaginable pain is heart wrenching.  In the midst of the grief, though, there were tremendous displays of love, compassion, kindness, and even gratitude.  In honor of Dina and her son, Tyler, here are three things I am grateful for today:

  1. My two daughters.  Tonight, when I returned from the funeral home, I hugged each of my daughters tightly and wept as I did so.  I shed tears for Dina who will not be able to hold Tyler again, and I shed tears of thanks for these…

Day nine began really early, as my weekend of working at the day shelter for homeless men began at 6:30 a.m.,  That said, it is easy to wake up in the dark, when you know that light awaits you, literally and figuratively.  Even with twenty-one days to go in this month of gratitude, I have rediscovered how important it is to focus on the positive people and things in my life, for when I do, life becomes richer and fuller across the board.  These are the three things that I am giving thanks for today, as they left my heart happy:

  1. Waking up to a kind text message.  As much as I love the art of conversation, I also appreciate the role that texting and emailing can play in maintaining communication with family and friends, and it is always nice when someone takes the time to send…

Two days into the thirty days of gratitude, and I found much to be grateful for on an impossibly gorgeous fall day here in Kentucky.  Having committed to documenting three things I am grateful for each day this month definitely has put gratitude at the forefront of my mind, as I found myself saying “thank you”, silently and out loud, throughout the day.  It’s no coincidence that this heightened focus on all that is positive and good in my life put an extra spring in my step and an even bigger smile on my face.  Corny, yet true!  Here are three of today’s things for which I am truly grateful:

  1. The opportunity to be in the presence of my amazing friend, Laura.  Laura and I only recently became friends, and we immediately discovered that we share a heart and soul connection that makes our budding friendship even…
