Love & Peace

Just read something which the writer has signed off with the usual 'love & peace'. I know it is fairly common but today it makes me pause and wonder.

It is just silly me pondering but do we really have both love and peace in our lives? Can we have both love and peace at the same time? How inter dependent are love and peace in our lives? Do we have to be in love to feel peaceful or do we have to be peaceful to be in love? Or are they completely seperate emotions achievable on their own? Are they actually emotions? I would say love is an emotion or rather a state of emotion and peace defnitely is a state of mind. So when we are in love and be peaceful does that mean we are emotionally and mentally secure, happy and without any emotional stress?

Love & peace...weighty phrase....I wish I could say for definite both of these are in my life and here to stay forever.....

Now that the weather is better we have resumed our Sunday walks. Yesterday we went to the University Parks here in Oxford for a long walk. Spring is here in all her glorious splendor, a glimpse....

Sit and stare...

You must be wondering where I have disappeared. Oh well I have not gone anywhere, right here, but it seems the blogger in me is taking a break. A rather long break actually. I just don't find anything to write anymore. It seems like I have said all that I wanted to, the last fews years I have wrote a lot here and now I am tired. Now I just want to curl up and let the world go its own merry way. Before I felt as if I am part of the world and if I do not say my share, then no one would hear me and what a great loss that would be, both to me and to the world. I may be faceless, a part of the crowd but I was certainly not voiceless. I wanted to tell and I wanted to be heard, or rather read.

But over the last couple of months, an apathy has gripped me and I want to sit and stare at the world as it passes me by. Maybe in my passivity I am storing the stories to tell them later, I don't know. Nothing seems clear, all I know is that I would like to sit and stare!
