NOW

Author: Rifka Bose /

"Yesterday is a canceled check; tomorrow is a promissory note; today is the only cash you have; so spend it wisely."

Every word in this quote is so true...we only have NOW, this moment. Are we doing justice to the NOW?

We are already 4 months into 2010, and another month, another day, another hour will go by, but what are we doing about the now? Are we making the NOW a memory we can treasure forever or are we letting the moments pass by like drops of water in an ocean...

Love...

Author: Rifka Bose /

One of my all time favorite quotes:
"Across the gateway of heart, i wrote "No thoroughfare"...
But love came passing by and cried..."I enter everywhere".

Love is such a complicated emotion and yet such a simple one. This one emotion pushes you to highs and lows you would never experience otherwise. You can feel like the king or queen of the world or a lone pauper on the streets...

There is no escape from this feeling...

What lies ahead

Author: Rifka Bose /

The stillness and darkness of the night...the flickering lamp light....and no one in sight...

The solitude embraces me...

I am aware that I am unaware of what lies ahead but yet i traverse..
Is being aware of being unaware a conscious choice one makes? Why does one want to take that plunge not knowing where one will land...or does one intrinsically know what the outcome will be...

Relationships

Author: Rifka Bose /

Relationships are like Rome.
Difficult to start out,
incredible during the prosperity of the ‘Golden Age’,
and unbearable during the fall.

Then, a new kingdom will come along
and the whole process will repeat itself
until you come across a kingdom like Egypt…
that thrives, and continues to flourish.
This kingdom will become your best friend, your soul mate, and your love.
