I believe that tears happen when our body can no longer hold onto an emotion ....
NO, I'M NOT PARTICULARLY SAD TODAY.
HOWEVER, THE HOLIDAYS SEEM TO BRING OUT VERY DEEP, STRONG EMOTIONS.
CHRISTMASES PAST AND BEING OVERLY TIRED MAKE ME A BIT MELANCHOLY ....
WATCHING THE CHILDREN, SO INNOCENT,
AND REMEMBERING THE TIME WHEN I WAS THAT LITTLE GIRL...
SEEING MY AGING MOM, MY BEST FRIEND, GETTING OLDER .....
KNOWING THAT SOONER THAN LATER THING ALWAYS CHANGE.
I STARTED ANOTHER BLOG A WHILE AGO WHICH WAS MEANT TO COMBINE FASHION WITH CREATIVE PHILOSOPHY.
IT IS CALLED "FASHION CHURCH". MY INTERESTS COULD ONLY SEEM TO MANAGE ONE BLOG AT A TIME, SO RAGS 2 ROSES BECAME MY ONLY FORUM.
MANY PEOPLE READ FASHION BLOGS FOR ONE REASON; THE CLOTHES .....
SO IF THIS POST IS A BIT TOO 'WORDY', I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND ;) I AM PLANNING TO HAVE A WEEKLY/BI-WEEKLY POST ON CREATIVE THINKING ( IF YOU WILL ...) AND SEE WHERE IT GOES :)
AFTER WATCHING "IRIS" ( THE AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL MOVIE ACCOUNT ON WRITER/PHILOSOPHER IRIS MURDOCH AND HER STRUGGLE WITH ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE ) FOLLOWED BY ( Don't laugh... ) FIELD OF DREAMS..... MY TEARS BEGAN TO FLOW WHOLLY AND FULLY WITHOUT REGRET !
I BELIEVE THAT CREATIONS LIKE THESE ARE A MUCH NEEDED CATALYST FOR CLEANSING MY SOUL. WITH NO APOLOGIES :) ~ I'M NOT A READER, BUT MOVIES GET ME AT MY CORE!
SO IF YOU NEED A SOUL COLONIC TO GET YA THROUGH THE REMAINING SEASON, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THESE TEAR JERKERS :)
OF COURSE THERE WILL ALWAYS BE OUTFITS AS WELL ;)
AND I WILL ACCEPT ANY KIND WORDS ABOUT MY NEUTRAL OUTFIT TODAY ;)
TEE, HEE !
Heaven knows we need never be ashamed of our tears, for they are rain upon the blinding dust of earth, overlying our hard hearts. ~Charles Dickens, Great Expectations, 1860
When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight. ~Kahlil Gibran
Let your tears come. Let them water your soul. ~Eileen Mayhew
Those who do not know how to weep with their whole heart don't know how to laugh either.
Happiness is a matter of one's most ordinary and everyday mode of consciousness being busy and lively and unconcerned with self.
