There are many reasons why I absolutely find libraries
incredibly intriguing and refreshing.
Containing veritable memories of the past, be they in
fictional or nonfictional format, libraries have always invigorated my soul,
for they offer a kaleidoscope of wonder from which to draw upon and examine at
length, and countless ways in which individuals can indulge in the exploration
of thougth that others have laid down before them.
When I was younger, I always dreamed of having a library
just like in Beauty & The Beast, and thankfully I’m lucky enough to have a
large library of nigh 1000 books.
Although most of these are of the nonfiction variety for research
purposes, I enjoy them all nonetheless.
I have always found incredible inspiration in books of all types, and
find them to be one of the most underrated aspects of media today.
Love is kaleidoscope of all emotional extremes from shuddering earthquakes and torrential tornadoes to resounding thunderstorms and even volcanoes; all wrapped within emotional seams; Love is a paradise in which you and I verse, speaking honestly in the language of the Universe, Love is the most breathless, vibrant and blissful extreme, a truly precious moment, a midsummer night’s dream. Love is forgiving, love is kind, love is even blind; it is the most honest emotion you can find. Love between two is the most divine connection, it is Heaven’s own substance, unbridled perfection. ___________ – Noctis Blackburn

Recently, I got into a conversation with someone that discussed life and humor. This conversation was intriguing for many reasons, but one of the more interesting points was when we talked about that although life features many moments that deserve serious thought and consideration, not every moment need to be as such. Many moments allow for the latitude of humor to be sprinkled in liberally making things more interesting and fun.
Moreover, while life does have its inherent serious circumstances that require individuals to be serious, having FUN and being yourself, whether its silly or not, is something that although often intimated, doesn’t happen as often as one would think in circumstances outside of the ones that require one to be serious.
Life is roller-coaster that is arduous, thought-provoking, amazing, and certainly much more. But it can also be fun when the time is right, so hesitate not in enjoying circumstances, or sprinkling humor when you can, because it often makes moments not only much more fun, but incredibly memorable, too.

Life is experienced in a full kaleidoscope of circumstances
that show the endless ways that it can be experienced. How we choose to experience those
circumstances will ultimately dictate what we get out of them, and how much
meaning and depth will be had.
One of the vanguard reasons I love writing is because it allows for the
exploration of life through the written medium, which showcases countless
writing styles, but also because it allows you to examine meaningful
circumstances at length, but more importantly, to record them as a time capsule
of sorts for yourself, or for others.
Additionally, the wisdom garnered from many of the most astute
individuals in the past still lives on, all due to their choice to pen their
thoughts in timeless fashion.
This merger of an individual’s experience and creative process, brought about
through writing, still resonates today.
Such instances not only allows individuals to learn from the past in
myriad ways, but ultimately also aids individuals to live a better life, a
wiser life, a more fulfilling life, all because those individuals took pen to
paper and seared their voices into the pages of history after imprinting the
insights they learned through the trials and tribulations they faced.
That is incredible power, not only because words have the influence
to change people’s lives as well as history in significant ways through their
inherent resonance, but words add depth to life that at times can be looked
upon time and again for those with appreciation of it, as is the baseline for
Don’t ever underestimate the power of writing, whether it is
blogs, paper notes, letters, creative writing, poetry, fiction, short stories,
and so on, to add depth to your life and those of others. For just like a mindful and deep breath brings
a moment of clarity, no matter how fleeting it may be, the act of writing can also
bring clarity that can allow not only for the recording of meaningful
circumstances that took place in an individual’s life, but this also allows for
more incisive examination of meaning within the very fibers of life, the untold
depths that often go unexplored not only in the moment, but later on.
Such circumstances while possibly seemingly insignificant at the time, might just echo through the end of time.
