Oh, what a year…

  1. A year of intense heartbreak by the sounds of it.

    The memory of which writer originally said it evades me at the moment but the quote was “Great pain produces great writing.”

    And you obviously experienced great pain this year from the style of great poetic prose with which you wrote this post.

    I was particularly struck by those lines, “All of it was taken by the past and washed away with the London rain.”

    Poetic prose at its most magnificent.

    Still while your style of writing is great for your present and future readers, the great pain that produces such great writing definitely takes a toll on one’s own heart and soul.

    One does long for personal happiness and a sense of joy.

    The key if one is lucky is to keep the memory of that great pain both to inspire great writing in the future and to provide one with experience in advoiding traps and pitfalls in the future while at the same finally finding that garden of happiness and contentment that truly gives the human heart and soul the longing and fulfillment that it is seeking.

    Wishing you a Happy and joyous 2020 so that the memories of 2019 will just be looked upon as the trials and tribulations that made you stronger.

    1. Oh, wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to read my blogpost and to write a comment on it. I can’t emphasize enough how much I appreciate this! Now that I’ve written it all down, I feel so much lighter. I actually have been doing alright lately. I feel that 2020 is going to be a year with a lot of light and breakthroughs. (A late) happy new year to you too! I hope you’re doing well and 2020 will be more than kind to you ❤ xxx

      1. Thank you very much, Celeste.

        2020 has been going very good so far.

        The decade of the 2010s started off with my dad dying from cancer in the first few months of 2010 which was a definite indicator that the 2010s were not going to be a good decade for me and they weren’t.

        Now I seem to be finally back on my feet and I seem to be feeling a sense of purpose at the start of this year which is a good thing. ❤
