Quote: Maya Angelou

  “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.” – Maya Angelou        

Invictus, by William Ernest Henley

Out of the night that covers me, Black as the Pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul. In the fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and…

LOVE – you painful, gorgeous emotion…

When you’ve been in pain, you unknowingly forced your heart to close, steel bars sprang up – I wonder when this heart will be free again. The irony, that you’re so free with your love, that you love and adore all, or at least try to, yet you don’t allow yourself to be loved in…

Lebanon calling!

After moving to Luxembourg at the start of 2010, I had finally managed to save enough money to go on one of my first holidays in over a decade. For a multitude of reasons, I didn’t see much outside of the UK during this long period in between; mainly, university cost money, and trying to…
