keep on rising


down in the depths of my soul
feeling the loss of control
in its spirit
so colorful
if you feel it then let’s go
to a place where you belong
give it strength to carry on
open your heart
set your mind at ease
live your life
and you’ll be free
we’re gonna rise, rise, rise
keep on rising

this pink smoothie is a great way to start saturday or refresh after running in the park.
the ingredients giving this pink color are raspberries, blackberries, strawberries and cinnamon with a pinch of ginger – and they’re all in coconut milk.
let’s keep on rising!

good morning starshine


good morning starshine

the earth says hello

you twinkle above us

we twinkle below

these are real quick delicious vegan cookies with coconut oil, cinnamon, peanut butter, and cocoa!

i baked them just before i go to work, and it takes only 25-30 minutes before they are ready-to-eat.

good morning and happy fridays!

each coming night


will you say when I’m gone away
“my lover came to me and we’d lay
in rooms unfamiliar but until now”

will you say to them when I’m gone
“i loved your son for his sturdy arms
we both learned to cradle then live without”

will you say when I’m gone away
‘your father’s body was judgement day
we both dove and rose to the riverside”

will you say to me when I’m gone
“your face has faded but lingers on
because light strikes a deal with each coming night”

-iron and wine, each coming night

this peaceful song goes round and round in my head every time i take a walk here in my lunch break. clearly, it’s because of the “riverside” melody that carries me away.

with a cup of coffee, some sunshine, a soft breeze, green and blue, i’m trying to overcome the sluggish feeling after meal. actually, these can be the reasons for feeling a little lazy.

meanwhile, my office is freeeeezing, i mean literally. and i’m sure i’ll be feeling ‘the monday’ as soon as i’m back there.

anyway, spring is good, isn’t it? 🙂



when the moon is in the Seventh House
and Jupiter aligns with Mars
then peace will guide the planets
and love will steer the stars

this is the dawning of the age of Aquarius
the age of Aquarius

harmony and understanding
sympathy and trust abounding
no more falsehoods or derisions
golden living dreams of visions
mystic crystal revalation
and the mind’s true liberation

 – aquarius, hair

nothing else i can add to these lines 🙂 happy sundays!
