HELLRAISERS OF CASTLEMILK

Life is Fury

anihorse313.gif

I will indulge my sorrows and give way to the throes and fury of my despair.

 

And as for my happiness…What kind of happiness do you see for me?

 

What are those unimportant little sins that I shall have to commit before I am allowed to sink my teeth into Life and tear happiness from it?

  "All sorrows can be borne if you put them

into a story

or tell a story about them.

 

I start with a tingle, a kind of feeling of the story I will write.

 

Then come the characters, and they take over,

they make the story."

 

 

Isak Dinesen (My inspiration)

pseudonym of Baroness Karen Blixen. Danish writer

(Out of Africa, 7 Gothic Tales), 1885-1962

The Fury of Life...

furies_life.jpg

 

"Fury drives us to our finest heights

our-fury.jpg

and coarsest depths.

feralhorse_02-wildbrownhorses-fighting.jpg

Out of fury comes creation, passion and inspiration,

but also violence, pain and self destruction –

fury_of_life1.jpg

The giving and receiving of blows

From which we never recover.

This is what we are,

What we civilize ourselves to disguise –

fury_of_life2.jpg

The terrifying human animal in all of us."

One's Destiny ~

On the edge of your destiny,

you must test your strength.

The Day Begins

 

Pinprick holes in a colorless sky

Let insipid figures of light pass by.

The mighty light of ten thousand suns

Challenges infinity and is soon gone.

Nighttime, to some, a brief interlude.

To others, the fear of solitude.

Brave Helios, wake up your steeds.

Bring the warmth the countryside needs.

Nights

 

Breathe deep the gathering gloom

Watchlights fade from every room .

Bedridden people look back and lament,

Another days' energy uselessly spent.

Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,

A lonely man cries for love and has none.

A new mother picks up and suckles her son,

Senior citizens wish they were young.

Coldhearted orb that rules the night,

Removes the colors from our sight.

Red is gray and yellow white,

But we decide which is right,

And which is an illusion.

The 'morality of compromise'

sounds contradictory.

Compromise is usually a sign of weakness,

or an admission of defeat.

Strong men don't compromise, it is said,

and principles should never be compromised.

 

Andrew Carnegie

If a man does not keep pace with his companions; perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. 

 

Let him step to the music he hears;

however measured and far away.

 

Henry David Thoreau

Watch your Thoughts,

 

They become

 

Words.

 

Choose your Words,

 

Words become

 

Actions.

 

Understand your Actions,

 

 

bad.jpg

  

 

 

Actions become Habits.

 

Study your Habits,

 

Habits become your Character.

 

Develop your Character for it becomes your

 

Destiny.

A starlit or a moonlight dome disdains

All that man is; All mere complexities,

 

 

 

 

 

The Fury and the Mire

Of human veins.

And when he shall die take him and cut him out into little stars

and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be

 in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun.

 

William Shakespeare
