inoubliable

Vous êtes le soleil.
Sometimes I wonder if you were ever mine.
Vous êtes la lune.
You are kindest when you shine.
Vous me ramener à moi.
When life becomes a tangled web.
Je repose mon cœur avec vous la place.
You know where to find my soul.
As straight as the crow flies.
Whenever my heart cries.
Tu es à moi et je suis à toi.

maybe

There are demons here

That may never be buried.

Time well spent – Staring, Silent.

Each heart beat noticed.

A smile creeps across my face.

Steady, now.

Wrapped up in medium,

Thoughts fleeting with the breeze.

It’s okay to be hopeful,

Because tonight we’re the sea..

And beneath this moon no promises get broken.

Chances are slim – 7,000,000,000:1.

Full circle

Shine a little light on me.

Shine a little light on me.

It wasn’t until I went for a drive tonight to fuel up ‘the Beast’ that I thought about what I could write today. This day, three years ago,was my very first blog post on Travelling Infinity. So very much has changed since that day.

I started off doing a photo-a-day thing, which ultimately failed miserably. Then I decided, just to take some pressure off myself, that I would blog only when I felt I had something interesting to say/show. This proved to be a good plan as I’m still here today – with one award under my web-belt, and countless times where this little slice of the Internets has been my best form of therapy.

So I’ll end where I began.. at the lights of uptown Goose Bay, wondering what my next day is going to hold.

Today was also momentous for another reason – today was my last day at my first job since graduating journalism school. I learned so much during my time at Destination Labrador.. I met so many wonderful people and went places I hadn’t imagined I’d go. I start on a new adventure this Monday as a web manager for one of Labrador’s most popular outfitting/fishing companies.

Looking back at where I was three years ago I certainly didn’t see this coming. I saw myself in the mirror as the housewife, the mechanic, the chubby girl with no confidence. I moved away and launched myself into a world of uncertainty, just hoping that things would turn out alright. And though I went through a hell of a time trying to keep my sanity, I’m glad I’m still here.

I’m glad I remembered that mantra I made for myself in high school, about not giving up, about travelling infinity no matter what it takes you through.

Things we found in silence.

There are some things we keep secret..
Moving lightly-
Treading water.
Whispering.
The night knows your story, even if no one else ever will.
It knows how you looked with your back to the field, accepting an embrace not given with love.
It knows how lost your eyes were..
How hollow your heart had felt; remembering.
There are some things we keep secret..
Even when we want to scream.
Want to jump.
Want to sink.
We just fade into the background noise,
Lost in moments that have gathered age.
Whispering the things we found in silence.
