Buddy, can you spare word or two? – The Cancer Bus

Expressing the greedy silence A picture’s worth of words Swallowed whole by memory’s avarice. Wishing wells charge five cents for Lies it disguises as your dreams and Sells for a penny a dozen accidents. Ascending into the ravenous night, Darkness craves sleepers who whisper Hungry with the first sun’s frowning light. Handmade gifts thoughtfully cost […]

Sustainable Fashion

RAFA FARIHAH

The fashion industry is fast paced. The moment one trend is “in”, it is considered dull the very next. Don’t let labels define what looks good on you, what is chic and what is not. You are the master of your own life. Your body is merely a car that you control. Just like you can upgrade your ride with forced induction, a custom paint job, and better brakes, your attire represents you. Be yourself.  Help replenish the Earth of it resources. Reuse. Recycle. Be fashionable. YOUR WAY.

My Passion and Side Hustle

Lifting Taboos

IMG_8235
I grew up as an adoptee in an environment that was not to be desired. One of the things I did learn throughout my time with my adoptive family was their passion for creativity. There were many little arts and crafts projects often happening and I really appreciated the nature of Arts and Crafts in general.
As a young child I learned to make necklaces, earrings, bracelets, anklets and so much more. I also learned about different beads, stones, and woodwork. My favorite stone of all time is the Larimar stone. The Larimar stone has so many functions. I began to dabble in making different types of jewelry using this beautiful pectolite. The most commonly purchased larimar items are earrings with little Larimar stones. These stones are only found in the Dominican Republic. My passion became my side hussle and now, here at Larimar Jewels and Things, we make many…

Why are endings so hard?

We should be masters

Everything ends.

First the womb

Then the breast

Or bottle, depending

Stroller

Midnight snuggles

Innocent imagination

Friendship without agenda

Playing with toys

Middle

Budding breasts

First period

First boyfriend

Hormone fights

This is the end of the beginning.

High school

Independence

Attitude

Virginity???

First view of future

Twenties

High school without boundaries

Knowing everything without knowing you know nothing

Veil lifting

First job

First love

First orgasm – don’t lie

Marriage

Wedding- so much planning, over so fast

Honeymoon

First house

Children

Births – miraculous torture

First steps

First words

Preschool

School years

Empty nest

Sad freedom

First view of legacy

Nostalgia

It all went so fast

Retirement

Adventure, at first

Money, an issue

Health, sneaks up

Full circle

Decisions

Confusion

Hand over

The end.

Beginnings are endings. Endings are beginnings.

Endings, beginnings, life

What are you gravitating towards?

Issues from the Heart

There are so many things in life that vie for our attention. The gravitational force around these things can be so powerful that if we are not careful, we lose sight of our purpose. The distraction can be so hypnotic that we become lackadaisical, weary, complacent and just wanting to fit into society’s mold. The pull to be normal beckons and we find ourselves effortlessly drawing closer and closer to its magnetic field. Little resistance is made as we wander away from opportunities because they are wrapped in problems/challenges. We encamp at the base of the mount as its steep and rigorous sides exclaim “it’s too difficult to try and climb.” Additionally, the need to take others along the journey dissuade us from continuing the path.  Excuses, excuses fills our backpacks. And whenever asked or pushed to continue the route we simply pull one out.

We allow fear to disarm our shield of…
