Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
[-Mary Elizabeth Frye, 1932]
Hello my friends. I thought it would be a good time to do another 'Lets' talk about...'.
It is by no means my intention to wake sleeping grief.. my apologies in advance if that happens.
Death: What are your thoughts about it? What do you think awaits us after? How do you feel about it, do you want to "fight it" or do you accept (your own or your close one's)?
As a ravenheart, I'm fascinated and greatly inspired by Death. It lets me see things from a different light. I am a person who, unlike a lot of other people, allows melancholy to fill me from time to time. I don't want
to be one of those always-happy-people. I don't want to close my eyes and live blissfully ignorant.
I fully accept Death, be it mine or any others. It's a necessary part of life. Out of death, new life blossoms - that's the way it always was, and that's the way it always will be. Don't get me wrong, of course it affects me like anyone else if a loved one has to go. but I am not.. angry.
Oh, and people really need to tone down in portraying death as 'evil'.
Now it's your turn. Tell meh!
The questions in german:
Deine Gedanken zum Tod? Was glaubst du erwartet uns nach dem Tod?
Aktzeptierst du den Tod, oder willst du dich am liebsten wehren (deinen eigenen oder den eines Nahestehenden)?

Let's talk about... Why do you draw/write?(I revived this journal because I had like 10 watchers at that time, and a lot of people seem to like my (Let's talk about's"! I want to encourage people to chat and of course to know more about my watchers, I care!)
Why the title? Well, I'm curious. Please tell me in a comment! Why do you draw, what do you draw for, or why do you draw exactly what you draw? (so much draw..)
As for myself, I'm mostly drawing to get strong emotions out of my system, the good ones and the bad ones.
That's why you'll always see when I'm pissed or in love, haha.. but I don't think you'll see me in love for the next lifetime
But I draw to digest incidents and dreams too, as you can see in the world of Elennya. Most of the characters and stuff that happens came from my dreams. Hell, Lunaris even came to me in my dreams.
Of course I draw because it's fun, too. If I feel like doing fanart or something, I just do it.
And, well, what am I drawing for? I am drawing for myself and no ot
Let's talk about... DreamsAll the time they steal my dreams, the ghosts of the past
They whisper on my sorrow, they shout all night long.
But the whispers will not end ...
Hello my friends. So, I did this here some time ago, but I didn't really had watchers there.. But I love writing with you and reading your opinions, so I want to revive this kind of journals. You already now I'm a dreamer...
Dreams... What do they mean to you? Do you take them seriously? Did ever something weird happen that was somehow connected to a dream you had? Ever had a dream so crazy you can't wrap your head around it? And.. what kind of dreams do you prefer?
To me, dreams mean a lot. They often tell me what's best for me, because when I think consciously about something, it usually doesn't end well And I do take them serious (depending on what kind of dream it was of course). Not in a 'foreseeing'-way, but they help to understand things and problems I have better.
As some of you may know, I "met" Lunaris in a dream
Let's talk about... SoulAnd our troubles quickly vanish
As the storm-clouds backward roll
From the glory of the spirit,
And the sunlight of the soul.
__James S. Jennings.
It's been a long time since I did one of these. There are many names for the soul.. but do you think something like this exist? What do you think the soul is? What about reincarnation... do you think the soul is immortal and returns again and again into another life? And do you think we can somehow influence what we become, or if we even become something new?
Yes, I believe in the soul. It's not something you can touch or measure.. It's... your essence. I don't know the words to describe it. I also like to imagine the connection we have to other people as many threads, linking our souls to someone else, or even something else, anything we are emotionally tied to. The thread grows thicker and
