It is hard to persevere through times of doubt when one is being pulled back

In focus may lie the answer


Though speaking can so easily enervate,

And chosen silence exert most fascinating influence,

Though voluntary muteness may be gracious,

Wording feelings is still pivotal.

New week with Yuksek

So a new (and busy) week begins.

And to accompany it, great music:

Amidst the tornado of cheap pop, Yuksek is a breeze of fresh beats.


So much to do and quite a lot of energy to do it.

Orchestrating things in an orderly fashion.

Renewing ideas from a humble perspective.

I’ve got to start going out a bit more.

I’ve been much too reclusive.

I’m beginning to feel the need to see new faces, new trends, new movements.

Being heartbroken is denying the impact of having much too high expectations.

How self-centered.

The words:

Let us not lose the glimmer of life, then.
