Illustration Friday: worn
I have a dimple that I like so much and it made me smile most of the time---really nice smile but there was a stage in my life that I thought it has diminished. Well, this is the first time I am sharing this experience. A tramautic experience where I was told that there’s something growing on my left breast….it was two years of complete check up before it was finished. But, I realized it doesn’t end just like that because the fear stayed. For sometime, I did not allowed my ex husband to touch my breasts. I always covered it with my hands and arms. I cannot unfold it. I cannot even talked about it……Anyway, good thing is that I find myself smiling again whenever I see a rainbow after the rain......
I will lift up my eyes unto the hills, from whence comes my help. My help comes from the LORD, Who made heaven and earth.--Psalms 121:1-2
Healing takes courage, and we all have courage, even if we have to dig a little to find it.--Tori Amosli

I have not been dreaming lately 'til last night. I dreamt about talking with someone in a place and before leaving, I looked around because it would be the last time I will be there. When I was out, I saw a young man looking at me and was standing halfway in the door and then he turned his back then suddenly I was at a stair going down...... then in the middle I got scared because looking at them it was covered by a dirty white like rug when it feels like it was hard cotton.....I said to myself, this is not right and I went back only to found out it was a long way and it seemed it was not ending...... whew! i dont know if I was half awake or I could already control my dreams because I really exerted an effort to woke up. It was hard though because my eyes kept closing.......

Light and Shadow
Countless times I took myself too seriously that I sometimes thought--- it was good or..... it was horrible or.....that I was going to have a breakdown.... but at the end my sense of humor came out...... Reading my collage gave me different kinds of feeling.......and I suddenly remembered one poem and quote that I like....but hey---feel free to share what can you see and feel in it and/or how it is related to Light and Shadow.
Observe the qualities of expansion and contraction
in the fingers of your hand:
surely after the closing of the fist comes the opening.
If the fingers were always closed or always open,
the owner would be crippled.
Your movement is governed by these two qualities:
they are as necessary to you
as two wings are to a bird.
Mathnawi III, 3762-66, The Pocket Rumi Reader
Just as you breathe in and breathe out
Sometimes you're ahead and other times behind
Sometimes you're strong and other times weak.
