31 December 2021…

December 31, 2021

an assortment of emotions in the quiet, empty space, feelings of uncertainty, excitement, exhaustion, joy, anxiety, peace, and relief. there the day is come, finally wrap up another year.

lingering sadness filled my thoughts as we remember the departed, the love and companionship we enjoyed, no longer at hand, left with the memories of a hug, a kiss and a caress

in this quiet empty space, overcome with a blanket of closure, we hug and embrace all the feelings that accompany such a transition

in our quiet empty spaces, we’ve gathered the brushes and the leaves 🍃 we pause to celebrate all our successes,

as the end of the year comes to a close, in our defoliated quiet space we reflect on our deeds, our acts and our achievements, full of renewed vigor

in the quiet empty spaces, enjoy all the little pleasures and the freshness of the day, blessed 31 December.

      I hope you are enjoying the freshness and pleasures of this day.
      Thank you for reading.

      • You’re welcome, my dear. Always. The night is closing in, and I’m readying for a quiet evening. Wishing you a beautifully blessed day, dear Abi. ❤️❤️❤️

      • Goodmorning Jeff❤❤, hope your evening was lovely. Happy New Year, wishing you all things dear and wonderful for 2022. Sleep sweetly.

  4. Wow this is pouring out with emotions of fondness, aspirations, and everything in-between 🤩🤩. Lovely writing and Happy New Year to you my friend 💕😄🎉🎊🎆🎇

    • I’m happy you are excited about this reflective piece of writing
      Thank you so much…HNY…🎊👯‍♀️❤

      • Absolutely 💕🌺☺️ — the way you captured all of those thoughts and feelings and memories, is trully a harmonious occasion in itself 💯🤟😂.

        Happy New Year to you once again my friend — have a blessed new day and new year 🥳🥳🙌

      • Yes thank you 😊…such were the quiet empty spaces…
        Wishing you a great day, we are slowly moving into 2nd new year ir as we locally say…tweede nuwe jaar. 😉😊😘

      • Haha the quiet , empty spaces are sometimes the ideal circumstance 💯😂🙏

        LOL yes we are here in 2022 and it feels good to learn about something new already that i can add to my vocabulary index (tweede nuwe jaar) 🙌😆

        Sorry for the late response my friend 👍😄

      • Yes, 2de nuwe jaar use to be an eventful day in my city. It was a day when the minstrels would come out in all their homemade regalia for new year carnival.
        It was a different second new year. Our parliment buildings were burning. Over the years many minstrels became homeless and they are now pointing a finger at the city for the harsh treatment of homeless people, hence the fire in the city. I guess the fire will continue to hold public opinion in sway for the rest of the day.
        I hope that you had a great second new year day.
        Time flies, the new year is already 3 days old.

        The quiet empty space is indeed a special diet😊

      • That’s a very intriguing situation, it’s interesting to see how the times have changed relating to this particular circumstance. It is very important history and it’s the kind of contentious issue that deserves some degree of consideration given how many people are affected and in the way that they express their grievances about it. There is more than one side to every story but we definitly need to look and see how to constructively manage the situation rather than focusing on picking sides at this stage.

        Hahaha I am sure that from the perspective of your culture, my second year would be considered terrific my friend, and yes time is moving like the wind already 💨🌪😂.

        I am sure that the quiet empty space is the perfect special diet for a new year 👍😂

      • Yes, you hit a nerve, there is more than one side to a story. It is interesting to observe the various perspectives being delivered on the matter, the sentiments expressed and the haste for taking sides. My city is dramatic, although the dragon is always in a state of simmer. The cape of storm lives with the curse and blessings of water, fire and wind. So then, much that happens there lends itself to dramatic interpretation and everyone must have their say and others must have their pound of flesh regarding the mother city. Calling for destruction reveals shortsightedness and complete alienation from her history. A people were living there and they built those magnificent structures which is visible in the entire province. Yes, an industrious people lived there.

        Shew.

        Something special about 2de nuwe year, it’s a fragrance you can’t quite get your nose on, but it is there in the air. I’m glad to hear yours was terrific. The wind speaks, the wind is mesmerizing, it captures attention.

        I’m loving it .Killa. on the edge somewhat, the creative bone is dormant, in a deep sleep it feels, hibernating.
        😊

        *** Hopefully there could be some solution that can came about that will help the matter at hand as I suggested earlier. It’s very interesting how much of this situation mirrors alot of other events that are happening globally as well with similar concerns at the core; it’s a new year for you and I and fortunately we have ways to better our lives and think about our futures and making progress but in many instances even though the start of the year is being welcomed and everyone has their goals and agendas, after the celebrations have dissipated, history seems to just keep repeating itself as if people are stagnated or going backwards. Nut as long as there is life, there is always a better way and we just need to make sure that we all do our part to prioritize the responsible thing because small steps do count.

        *** LOL I like the sound of that. If it’s a fragrance then I will have to add it to my collection along with my thinking-cap and my suite of fashionable ideals of confidence that I am going through the new year with that are all tailored for progress and growth haha.

        I’m loving it .Killa. on the edge somewhat, the creative bone is dormant, in a deep sleep it feels, hibernating.

        😊

        *** Very very interesting 😂💙💙. In deep-sleep hibernation mode the dream will gather and give you lots of very unique and intriguing ideas to creatively convert when you awake 👏👍☺️

      • It’s the ineptitude of government at this time that is so worrisome .Kila. You describe the current mood so well. We cannot sustain a celebratory way thinking and living. The whole world gets right back to the business of being in a state of turmoil. There is talks about talks, but nothing really happens.
        For some reason i constantly have flashes of the french revolution and i try not to let it get a hold of me.
        My country’s whole safety and security systems are compromised. All the kings horses and all the kings men cannot put him together again because they are just as fat from whatevet they’ve been fed.
        There is a spell on a large portion of our people. They cannot see the wood for the tree, and I fear that their ignorance is going to cost us. They generally believe that if one man is sidelined that we will be punished and in fact they are enacting out that punishment, playing god. Tribes are in conflict here, like rats they are gnawing at each other. Schizophrenia is getting a hold of this nation, one can only hope that the sound and sober few will have the intelligence and strength also the bravery to steer us. I’m not optimistic about the characteristics i just described, but i will continue to excercise optimism and trust the few hard at work to rescue the situation.

        Yes, unfortunately that skill of making perfumes is lacking in my country. 2de nuwe jaar as a petfume brand would be an instant hit, with a new collection coming out every second new year day.
        You should add it to your collection. 😊

        I really hope so. Right now there isn’t a sign of an oasis in this desert. Pray the dream gains momentum. In the meantime do what i do best. Read all the creatives and ponder their work. That is also nice.😊

      • Thank you, I try my best to read and take into consideration what the comment is about so I am happy to know that my sentiments actually seemed to resonate relative to the issue at hand, better than I expected based on what you have to say. These matters are very important things and should not be swept under the rug — I am in no position to make any assertions one way or the other since I do not live or have any real connections to the areas that we are speaking about so I know next to nothing about what’s really going on and I am fortunate to be enlightened by these incidents from friends like you who spread the word about these things. At the end of the day, we have powerful brains for a reason and should be able to come up with solutions to these issues but because of other things like self-interest, wealth, greed, monopoly and things of that nature, such things have a way of lingering for a long time and actually getting worst because this is all that develops develops from toxicity, and that is: deterioration.

        The skill is lacking in your country because people still love the old-fashion way and prefer to stick with burning incense over the “wetness” of the perfumes for the time being 😂😂. But two heads are better than one so there is definitely room for perfumes and I can definitely see me adding 2de nuwe jaar to my collection and, in fact, it seems like something that would complete my collection hahaha

        Don’t worry, as you said, sometimes these situations may be the divine hand at work. There is no oasis in the desert yet but who knows what priceless “jewel” you may actually uncover hidden beneath the sands 🙌🤩

      • Yes fortunately there are bright young minds putting their heads together to ensure due processes.🙂…getting the right people for the job as the collective see fit.

        On the otherhand one is concerned about the ever-extending academic debate and we are losing valuable hours for the talks and action for development. At the moment the debate is lobsided. Ironically I’m just looking at a program on tv relating to the destruction of the railways, but focusing more on the loss if valuable skills and hoe people were maimed due to cable theft and destroying the lines.
        So I’m not sure how the collective brain is going to catch up in this regard.
        I somehow have the feeling that you do have a deeper understanding and you have knowledge

        Yes, lol incense is a big thing her and of course commercial perfumes…but surely the idea is good, at the moment people are jus disenchanted with the situation in the country. On the otherhand they are flourishing in the home industry with regard to food security and the food&beverages industry. 2de nuwe jaar will happen

        Yes, its Patience growing up inside of me..
        🙂😍 thank you…beneath the hidden sands…yes!!!
        Mwah enjoy your Friday night

      • Yes fortunately there are bright young minds putting their heads together to ensure due processes.🙂…getting the right people for the job as the collective see fit.

        *** Exact and they should be encouraged and supported because we don’t want a process just to say that we have a process, and then in the next week the same issue comes back up because nothing meaningful was really done and it was just all politics lol.

        *** Thank you, I like to know that I do have an understanding of the situation. I hope cooler problem-solving heads will prevail to correct these situations. I am definitely not in a position to see or even know what exactly is involved with these particular situations but it’s up to the people who are within these circumstances to sort out the issues and to come up with some kind or remedy to help reduce theft and people destroying things; this is why it’s important for people to continue to support productive and progressive steps and movements because it helps to bring some level of obstruction to nefarious activities and also set-up valuable advantages and incentives for people to not see some of these things as worth their time or consequences.

        *** Lol I had no idea that incense was very popular in your territory, I just wanted to being up and alternative explanation and incense fit the bill very well but it is trully awesome to know that incense is actually something that is very big over there in addition to the availability of conventional perfumes lol. Good to see that it’s not all bad news and there are some bright spots especially in the areas that you noted and I hope that things continue that way.

        Yes, its Patience growing up inside of me..

        *** awesome that is a powerful trait to have.

        🙂😍 thank you…beneath the hidden sands…yes!!!
        Mwah enjoy your Friday night

        *** Indeed, alot of great things have been discovered in some of the most unlikely places — thank you enjoy your weekend too my friend 🙏☺️😘

      • Yes i think it’s going to follow the trend you are advocating. We will see now into next week maybe if significant steps will be taken and to which extent the to and fro will slow down and the actions petitioned for will bear fruits amongst the various sectors of the lobby groups.
        Hopefully all of this will be actioned before significant official sittings or maybe the lobby groups will take up at least one major injustice and run with it. Budgetary constraints is the noose around both sides necks, or so it seems. But where there is a will there is a way. Even grassroots work back in the day were costly.
        Yes, we can’t be running a treadmill on this matter, rather that the spirit of agreement hold water. On profound move, a great leap into courts.

        Yeah there is one big organisation that one can see clear commitment in terms of reconstruction and development. We need more, here is where the real work is, where democracy becomes visible within our living environments.

        Incense is very popular, well in all the bohemian quarters of society. These enclaves of incense users are found in rural or urban areas. So yes with all its accessories, a lucrative business indeed.
        Conventional perfumes are big my friend, the love of perfume is linked to brand.

        Yes, I’m getting to know Patience as she grows and keenly observing her progress and development. I shall not be anxious if she falters.

        Oh yes, that i give to the universe
        Lots and lots of great things.
        Have a great Saturday my friend.
        The birds are chirping louder and louder, a clear reminder that i haven’t come to say hello.
        Mwah

        *** Time will definitely tell. I hope that at some point there will be some level of cooperation to help things along because this is a new year and this kind of thing seems like it was happening for a while, so I know everyone involved wants to see something come out of it so that they can move on to other things that also need alot of time energy and resources. So in this case, for things to actually see some level of improvement rather than taking a turn for the worse, especially since money is one aspect at the root of the issue and it tends to often bring out the worse in people before anything productive is even given a chance lol

        Yeah there is one big organisation that one can see clear commitment in terms of reconstruction and development. We need more, here is where the real work is, where democracy becomes visible within our living environments.

        *** Cool, I hope people realize the value in these key areas just as you do and that it can recieve the proper attention that it needs to grow before it’s too late to even save anything in that department. Maintaining a healthy living environment is key.

        Incense is very popular, well in all the bohemian quarters of society. These enclaves of incense users are found in rural or urban areas. So yes with all its accessories, a lucrative business indeed.
        Conventional perfumes are big my friend, the love of perfume is linked to brand.

        *** I am happy to hear and to learn about these areas and some of the things that they still have in use, in some instances we don’t always have to get rid of the old things just because something “new” comes up LOL. Certain things are just classic and actually never get old and the only reason why they may fade, is because people do really know much about them or know how to properly use them, but I can definitely see a decent cosmetic industry built around these kind of things if someone’s access and availability is ample lol.

        Yes, I’m getting to know Patience as she grows and keenly observing her progress and development. I shall not be anxious if she falters.

        *** Absolutely, patience doesn’t neccessarily have to be a bad thing and there is no need to falter if patience is appropriate for the situation at hand 🙏💯😄.

        Oh yes, that i give to the universe
        Lots and lots of great things.

        *** Exactly I agree and what is cool about it is whenever we have the eyes to actually spot and see them, and good thing for you, you have wonderful eyes and vigilance hahaha

        Have a great Saturday my friend.
        The birds are chirping louder and louder, a clear reminder that i haven’t come to say hello.
        Mwah

        *** Thanks I certainly will. You take it easy too if you can and have a great weekend. LOL those sounds of the birds make the day seem so inviting so please enjoy my friend 😂😂

    • I know exactly what you are talking about. So good to be here in 2022.
      I’m glad for you.
      2021, i had a two month stint in hospital, it’s only a dream that dragged me out of that bed. Otherwise i don’t know. God is good.

      Touch wood, i feel the grain of those who stood by me.

      • Sorry about the two months in hospital. Yes, glad to be here.

      • Time flies by so quickly, looking back, i cant even express how it felt to get back on track.

        Good, great to read you again

  7. Belated Happy New Year

    • Thank you, wishing you a great 2022.
      Can you believe we are almost in the middle of January?
      We pray for goodness to reign🕊
