Hope

This morning, I took a walk and I saw the first ducklings swimming on the river this season. Life goes on. Good to know it.
Hope is a difficult subject for a depressive person. One tends to see only the negative part of the life. And there is no room for hope. But I recently started a new blog (in Spanish) about my father. I’m reading his diaries from the time of the WWII, and after, when he and my mom endured really harsh situations (concentration camp, jail, hunger, the killing of his siblings…) He and my mom never gave up. They always kept their hope alive. Their hope was their faith in God and in the love they had. And they succeeded. after twelve years of forced separation they got reunited and resumed their life in common with their love intact. If they did it, I can’t complain and lose my hope because our times are a little difficult and there are many injustices around us. I need that kind of strong hope.

Faraway

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Faraway, where my memories live, there is a small island with its shores bathed by crystalline waters. My boat seems to fly between the blue bright sky and the green bottom of the sea. He is waiting for me on the beach, smiling. Faraway, where my memories live, there is joy.
Now I’m stuck down here, in a dusty and dirty world filled with anguish, pain and death, trying to survive. But I have hope because I have known happiness and I know it’s possible, no matter what happens, when there is love.
I want to leave behind me joyful memories, like the ones I treasure, to spread hope
But I feel guilty, because when I see what’s happening in the world I get gloomy, and instead hope I convey sadness
Faraway, where my love is waiting for me, there are no tears.
Faraway where my love is waiting for me, there is peace

Circus

If your life were a movie, what would its soundtrack be like? What songs, instrumental pieces, and other sound effects would be featured on the official soundtrack album?

The sound effect of a circus. With a happy and confident music of a marching band for the opening. Then, silence. A drum roll, warning that something dangerous is going to happen… and the cymbal crash. Success. An ovation. The band plays music again. Silence.  Drum roll. Cymbal crash. Ovation, and so on.

Silence. The sound of the drums fills everything… But there is not Ciymbal crash, but a sound effect of a fall and a violent collision with the floor. A final dreadful silence.

I was going to write “The end”, but I’m alive, and I guess I can get up and continue the soundtrack with a quiet, brief, instrumental music, expressing hope.

 

Cue the Violins.
