Sidewalk

IMG_5840

I’m not really used to this–full-grown trees lined up without the roots bursting from the ground; lanes walkable enough for at least three people without bumping into each other; a lane for two bikes to pass through. It may be mundane, but it was wow for me!

At Himeji in 2015. For the daily prompt: sidewalk

Daily Prompt: Praise

Ken Lloyd + Inoran = cool music!  My piece of the daily prompt (praise)

I like listening to FAKE’s songs especially on road trips 🙂

Take me to a place further into space
繋がれてた光を射して… praise it
So let your dreams unfold, find yourself and go
歩き出す 全てを捨てて… to where I belong
生きる事の意味を探し求めてきた
震える程の今を駆け抜けていく

The way it touched my heart, the way I feel it now
感じながら I’ll never let you go
描いていた記憶をたぐり寄せて 今down there

Take me to a place, full of life and grace
繋がれてた光を射して… praise it
荒れ果てたこの街は
Sweetest trauma in a velvet golden box made from hurt
生きる事の全て駆け抜けて

The way it touched my heart, the way I feel it now
感じながら I’ll never let you go
描いていた記憶をたぐり寄せて 今 down there

写し出す… It’s all a matter of love love love love
溶けてゆく… It’s just a little love love love love
奪い合う… It’s all a matter of love love love love
To be a simple thing without no meaning is all I wanna be

With all that I’ve seen, I can’t believe
Each day can come back with no relief
I wanted to go outside to space and become all that I could be

The way it touched my heart, the way I feel it now
感じながら I’ll never let you go
追いかけて
It’s all that I can feel and it’s alive,
it’s all I can feel and it’s alive
The way you touched my heart, the way I see things now
感じながら I’ll never let you go
描いていた記憶の向こう側へ 今 down there

Sanctuary in a Cup or Two

We all need that one place, time or feeling that we can come home to every day, cast down the stresses and worries of life, and just *breathe*.  A daily Sanctuary of mine for the past few years has been coffee time with my boyfriend.  We’d each make a cup when he wakes up, and we’ll have another one when I get home.   We might not literally have coffee together twice a day every day, but that time we have is spent just hanging out and simply celebrating the day (then there were times when it’d be me crying out my day^^; ).  Our coffee time has always been comforting to come home to, whether it’s from just another workday or from a holiday.
