In Silence and Solitude.

by Shephard

It’s a little warm outside, but here in my corner the air remains chilled to the bone.

Me. The corner. My thoughts.

Things could’ve been different… yet here I am. Fighting to stay alive, only to live in even more pain. The kicker to it all? I brought this upon myself.

I’ll quit my whining soon enough.

It’s getting colder here, specially at night or early morning. Still warm enough in the day, though.

Something like tea or coffee or soup can help with that bone chilled feeling. Even when it’s not fully due to weather.

Sigh. Not everything is on you, still. For everything in your life. Choices do not dictate control.
A lot of things could’ve been different. We could have been born as jellyfish and none of this would concern anyone.
It doesn’t change anything that’s here now.

Sweet apples can grow from sour trees, they graft a branch onto a young seedling so they get the fruit they want.
Things just aren’t always possible in the way one would want them to be, but what is here can usually be worked with in some way.

Your post also sent me to youtube..
i think it fits with this too.
the dreaming, what if’s, and wondering. And still what’s here.

I don’t know. if it’s warmer outside, maybe being out for a little bit could do you some good.

Hi Shephard

I hope you get this. Sorry that I didn’t reply to your comment. I’m just popping in quickly to sort of respond to that comment. You always seemed to have a quasi-invested interest in the two of us, and as such I would like to “update” you. Yes, braiNsane and I managed to stay in contact with each other. While it’s not my place to discuss it, I will say that we are doing good. We are helping each other with our respective issues, and things have… blossomed.

Appreciate that you’ve checked back in, and it makes me happy that you’re both still in contact with one aother — “blossomed” is just the word I was hoping you’d use to describe your connection with each other. You two keep at it, keep supporting each other, and the bond that brings you together will only grow even stronger.

…but actual, bro — this made my week. Best of luck to you both, and please give braiNsane my sincere regards.

Thank you for the words of encouragement, Shephard. I think we will definitely keep at it.

I’m glad to hear it. Thanks, and I will do so. Best of luck to you as well. You carry a great deal on your shoulders, and yet you’ve helped quite a few people on here with your kind words, me and braiNsane included.

“Hurihia to aroaro ki te ra tukuna to atarangi kia taka ki muri i a koe”. With my luck, that actually means something totally different and absurd like turn your chickens every hour for good luck.

@SadPotato: I flip the bird whenever I please, thank you very much. It would appear that it brings me nothing but misfortune however…

I believe you’re speaking of an old Maori proverb: “Turn your face toward the sun and the shadows will fall behind you”. Pretty good job you did there, brother. Oh, and thank you.

I hope you and Ms. Black have been doing well in the meantime. Both of you take care, alrighty?
