Breaking the Chain of Hate


Schola Affectus

AMDG

download1I read a book a few years ago which had a profound effect on me.  ‘Forgiveness – Breaking the Chain of Hate‘ by Michael Henderson looks at the lives of dozens of remarkable people of many nations and faiths who have been able to break the chain of hate through repentance and forgiveness.  They included survivors of the Burma Road, the Siberian Gulag and Nazi atrocities.   This for me is the key to life of Nelson Mandela which is being celebrated today.  One of the most eloquent testimonies has been Archbishop Desmond Tutu, you can watch it below, but for me he identifies this remarkable inner transformation that took place in prison. To my ears it is similar to the transformation that can happen in the silence of the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius.   ‘The crucible of prison added a deep understanding of the human…

When My Hair Turns Grey


iiThinks

ed4b31e13a464105ef68fa5fe5d72fb0

When my hair turns grey and
I reach the sunset of age
I wonder what regrets
Would flood my heart

I would not care
If I left this world
Without fame or riches
A legacy, leaving my name
On towers built up high

I would regret
Not protecting the orphan child
Who cried late at night
All alone
Wondering how he’d survive

I would regret
Not helping the homeless man
Hungry in the biting cold
Hoping for shelter
Just this night

I would regret
Not spreading one more smile
Giving one more hug
And bringing joy
To those in need of hope

So before I die
I’ll do my best
To touch a heart
And change this world
One person at a time

Natalie Imbruglia- Torn


Alice


evolvingtosyn

She mourns her fate
Sipping from the chalice of sorrow
Fitfully
As I watch,
Her lips tremble:
Filling her eyes with tears
Till they are twice as large
Her throbbing hands
Filled with her bosom
As she cries herself hoarse
In soft suppressed moans
Coarsely
Till she’s worn
She falls asleep finally,
In a pool of her tears
Night after night
A daily nocturnal ritual with which
She mourns her shattered dreams.

But day comes soon enough
And she learns to hold her pain
In a gutsy gaze
She doesn’t have to be brave
But she chooses to be
So she masks her worries
Like acne hidden in the brown swirls
Of caked powder
She sweeps them under
One stab
One dab
One masterful stroke after another
Her face as the canvass,
She tucks away the misery
Underneath a contrived beauty
She practises her smile in front of the mirror

THE CRUSH OF THE BIG HATS

We all know that hats are important accessories when trying to protect your face and skin from the damaging rays of the sun especially on a summer beach day. However, what you didn’t know is that wearing hats has taking a turn from being just a protection requirement to more of a fashion staple this season. You heard it right! Fashion staple!

Looking for the sophisticated, society-girl look at tropical weddings, special events and social gatherings/parties, you should consider buying a big hat.

At Weddings
Pair a big hat with a wedding appropriate attire in colors such as navy, red, yellow, purple, green etc. Wearing a big hat may give you an exception to the ‘no white’ (or white related) color rule at a wedding if styled properly.
