Simple advice

Does suffice

When life gets hard

And worries bombard

Take a break

And eat cake

In the Midst of the Mist

In-the-Midst-of-the-Mist  Quatern poem

It always amazes me how our mind can get carried away when we can’t see things clearly or how our imaginations begin to flow when we come upon the unexpected or unexplained.  “In the Midst of the Mist”  is an imaginary story that shows us the importance of not letting ourselves get overcome by fear, or letting our emotions get out of control, by imagining things that may not be true, just because we can’t see the whole picture clearly.
