Sabary

Others said it, so they sang it.
And I will sing that which has not been said.
Avalanche of tears on a mountain of pain.
Desert of war, a mirage of peace.
Diving in the past, drowned in memories.
I feel bad when I try or have trouble trying.
Death plays with contracts that I will have to sign.

For those of you who are familiar with the saga, this is both a beautiful and heart-breaking moment. (And for those of you who aren’t/ haven’t gotten far, please don’t go on a search. Take the quote at face value, you’ll thank me later.)

Oak Tree by Ullswater Lake, Lake District, Cumbria, England, UK

Final day of this challenge

Happiness is…

I am a Potterhead and everytime I see the word happiness I’m taken to this quote:

Even though it’s not cannon to the books…

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban was a great movie…

Happiness is all around us. It can be found in that place you least expect.

Day 7, views on the news

I’m not a soccer fan, actually I don’t like it one bit. So the World Cup month we had was a nightmare for me. Everywhere I’d turn it was something soccer related.

Thankfully it ended and the winners were crowned.
