Let's Celebrate

By Uttam Gill, published on Jul 17, 2012

Those who wish to resign to fate perhaps lacks will to accept the truth of hope. They wait with dwindling hope and many doubts create havoc in their mind.

Let It Rain...

By Barbara MacDonald , published on Jul 14, 2012

... Unresponsive to my longing I try to make the flood stop Holding it within Unsuccessful it escapes ... My tears falling undiminished Frightening with the depth Of this unending pain Not to be shut out... Life moves on The earth spinning slowly Day and night passed My eyes watered Hope failing me...

Inside my heart Water inundated Wild and fierce I caught the malice I heard the reasons Then I asked How am I ... (more)

Need the caress of comfort

When a dream dies

When life knocks me

To my knees?...

It takes for me to even

Let you touch my joy

Of unspoken eminence

You in my ... (more)

Go Ahead...You Can Make Your Dreams Come True

By Uttam Gill, published on Jun 22, 2012

...errors.

Beyond the veil of your calmness, I see the turbulence. In your connecting thoughts erroneously you are clipping your wings and that’s how you are drifting. In your drift I certainly see decay.

Having said this, I ask now, can you see the clear sky; scan it with your hope. Don’t you see now everything is so beautiful...so wonderful. What you have to hide? Remove that cloak....Are you afraid, that people will see the scar...just don’t worry. Your life is yours just don’t demarcate boundaries. Have all the courage of convictions at command of your will, so... (more)

By Randy Mitchell, published on Jun 7, 2012

...and no one else’s. It’s part of his inheritance given to you upon your birth, and he planted it inside to grow till its realization finally comes to pass.

When a person sets out to achieve a goal there will always be forces hiding behind ever corner coming to snatch it way, to keep it from ever leaping past the starting line; it’s just the super-competitive world we live in. Many might say you’re not... (more)

Mark Sky...Another Lesson...

By Barbara MacDonald , published on May 23, 2012

To kind of paint you a picture of what it was like on an average day in the drop-in, let me give you a little info so you can maybe visualize it better. I know when I started working there I truly had no idea how much I would love and hate it at the same time. The love part came with my ability to see beauty in all people . I just usually choose to focus on the positive no matter what the situation. Working there that certainly was a helpful thing. The hate part came from the frustration of knowing I could do so much more. Unfortunately when you work for non-profit there is only so... (more)

Beware of a Common Man

By Uttam Gill, published on Apr 10, 2012

This is him… cut out, as no one tends to forget and millions tends to watch. As the carbonic caricature, his existential belief, acquires the matching hope and that’s to find a magic wand; with one and only reason to know about himself and that’s a common man. To him from the beginning it never ends and from the end it refuses to begin, because he wishes to travel from the beginning till end. And as he has not begun yet, so end is certainly not the premature destination, which he wishes to reach without traveling the distance between and that’s a common man.
