Here Lies….

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.” John F. Kennedy May you never be…

True Colors

When I started blogging ten years ago, it was an outlet for me to express my thoughts and emotions, hence I called it Pondered Thoughts. Ever since I was a little girl, I was not talkative. I choose who I confide to and it will take months or years before it happens and a lot…

Of Webs & Dew Drops

Yesterday, while on my walk back to my area of work…I took that few minutes out to enjoy the scenery. I purposely walk slowly and took my time admiring the things that I passed along the way. One of the things that caught my attention is the plant pictured above. It was covered in webs…

Living in an Abstract World

I dream of a world where we won’t get our superiority from the uncertainty of others. Where we don’t mistake kindness for weakness. Where we co-exist and not just exist. I always tell my husband and daughter that I was born in the wrong era. I am fascinated with everything old. I enjoy listening to…

Tunnel of Love

“People believe I Am what they see Me as, rather than what they do no not see. But I Am the Great unseen, not what I cause myself to be in any particular moment. In a sense, I am what I am not. It is from the Am-notness that I come, and to it I…

Serendipity

“Do you think the universe fights for souls to be together? Some things are too strange and strong to be coincidences.” Emery Allen A fortunate happenstance or a pleasant surprise? Have you seen the movie Serendipity? It’s one of my favorite movies and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen it and it…

Beautifully Bruised

I found this beauty laying on the brick walkway at work . It was there, probably waiting to be picked up or wondering if somebody would notice. I have no idea if somebody else found her beautiful or if somebody took a few minutes out of their time to admire her. I did. I find…

Life in Black & White

I love writing. I love photography. I have to have both. My photos give life to my writing and vice versa. Without these two, I don’t think I would be who I am. Something would be missing. Not too long ago, someone…a very dear friend, told me to quit listening to music or reading things…

Campus Life

It’s been an above average kind of temperature here in NC the past few days and yesterday was such a beautiful day to venture out. With some hesitations due to lack of ideas on what to shoot, I grabbed my camera from the car and hope for the best. But when you love what you…
