Re: Quotes, poetry and music to help us all

@Hamsolo01 @Ali11 @Adge @eth @greenpea @TAB It was at riverside, I watched the boat disappear at horizon, the river was stationary, the sun reflecting on its ripples, I wondered why I had to be there. Never was any hint of commitment, Then a tree fell down. Frightened were the little birds busy making their nests.I heard the sounds of the trees, waves of winds through the trees, From then I walked on alone. But the boat had its strings binding me. Loneliness became my companion. But the heavy baggages on the boat rise with sunrise and haunt at sunset. I drew lines of horizon, hoping the disappearance of the boat can stop memories of the heavy baggages. But only to be found, was the sail boats travel along, leaving colours of the rainbows. So I drew the sailboats . That the echoes of the sailboats sounding the languages of friendships and love.

I think I can lie down and let the moonshine pour over my bed. Because somehow Hope was found again.

I've been sitting on this footage for a long time, highly anticipating Jean Grae's new album 'Cake or Death' which was due out this year. Jean is one of my favourite artists, and having met her on a couple of her Melbourne tours, she is also one of my favourite personalities. Full of energy, never

Thanks so much for creating & sharing @Hamsolo01 How are things for you now?Continuing to volunteer or are you doing paid work too? I’m finding things bumpy due to my brain’s unhelpful thoughts recurring in context of stress of overseas trip for my nephew’s wedding. Learning to just accept it but it makes being functional tricky at times. Wish I wasn’t me but hey we don’t get a choice! All the best to @greenpea @TAB @Meowmy sending my admiration for how you’ve clearly got through so much in the past. Truly hope the present & the future is filled with ease & joy
