About Me

Vanessa, 29.

Stuck between daydreams and reality. Pursuit for knowledge and constant learning. I see myself, my mind and heart in abstract, artful ways.

I love art in general as it can be anything.


Writing fulfills me in ways no simple words could ever reflect. It is a part of me; a piece of flesh from my soul,
mind and heart, it is the air I breathe.

Too much literature to read and love and choose from. An overwhelming boundlessness of inspiration and creative beauty.


"Even amidst fierce flames the golden lotus can be planted"
-
Monkey by Wu Ch'Eng-En, Sylvia Plath's epitaph.


"There is no time where we are going"
-
M Train, Patti Smith


"Today I walked on the lion-coloured hills
with only cypresses for company,
until the sunset caught me, turned the brush
to copper
set the clouds
to one great roof of flame
above the earth,
so that I walk through fire, beneath fire,
and all in beauty.
Being alone
I could not be alone, but felt
(closer than flesh) the presence of those
who once had burned in such transfigurations.
My happiness ran through the centuries
in one continual brightness. Looking down,
I saw the earth beneath me like a rose
petaled with mountains,
fragrant with deep peace."
-
Elizabeth Coatsworth, On the Hills, 1924


[...]"You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream."
-
Edgar Allan Poe, A Dream Within a Dream


"Ipsa scientia potestas est (Knowledge itself is power)."
-
Latin proverb

Yes full time job here as well, trying to find one elsewhere, had an interview last week for a BSA Officer position, deals a lot with title 31, seems boring but I'm trying to get on a different shift. Yes I saw it, I thought it was quite lovely. What time is it there? It's 6pm where I am

Yeah but everybody gets 40 hours a week & we're paid every thursday. So that's nice & I get to supervise 2 days out of the week as well :) glad you had a good shift, hope you're sleeping well :)

The extra money is always nice, they hardly ever allow anybody to receive any extra hours at my workplace. Well that's even better you got to stay in your sleepwear! Haha, I have seen some interesting things, & bye for now, try to have a lovely shift

I see you went to work today. I work Midnight to 8am in the Surveillance Department at a Casino. Boring work mostly. You do see some funny stuff on occasion though. Too bad you couldn't stay in your sleep wear until 3pm, lol.

Happy in your very sweet wishes for my day, and hoping yours will be filled with songs and traffic dancing... and stars so bright they light your afternoon like daydreams. :)

That is perfectly alright, hoping you are enjoying my writing. And wishing you a lovely Sunday as well. I shall get back to you later, almost time to head home. I was reading your old pieces to be able to compare them to your newer ones and see how far you have come. Either way, have some coffee (if you enjoy coffee, I do) & read yourself a good book today.

I am so grateful you notice those edges of my soul and very happy you enjoyed La La Land too. Made me miss LA a bit more, though I never danced when I was stuck in traffic. :)

Sweet dreams when you sleep. "City of stars are you shining just for me? City of stars... You never shined so brightly..."

I carry my "Essential Neruda" with me everywhere. Love's echo. Do so love your writings, your page, and La La Land. ;)
