The puddle is not your home

The puddle is not your Home. Wake up, live your life and sing the Melody of your soul. And yes, even if no one will ever know: sing, write, dance, study, run, paint, love… because the beauty is in the act of doing it 🙂

As Told By Silia


Life is short and so is your time
You don’t need the validation if you know your purpose here
The transition has become the tragedy but hope should not be lost
We will see His face, He made this promise
But first you must start now
Use what’s innate in you, “this gift” can only be brought to life by your hands
Pave the way for the truth, drink from the water that never runs dry
Find it inside of you, be the ocean, for the puddle is not your home.

  1. Almost forgot! Do you do indoor succulents or cacti?? If so, you might consider a “pencil cactus”. More like a succulent , very neat, no spines to stick you, easy to take care of! I have two and one is over 8 foot tall! Just a thought!

    2. I would jump at the chance too prove your theory of people on line and off line are different! I agree with the thought that 90% percent are not what they advertise! (generalization here)
      However, there are people that may not have ‘communication’ skills outside of the computer!
      Myself for example, I could not walk up too you and say hello on a busy street!
      Not in a bar either! Just looking at you would send me into a ‘shell shocked’ stage!
      I know you do not like talking about your looks, however, what I described is a real problem out there
      If we were to have a ‘movie’ moment like me stepping on your cinnamon roll, your toe, or bumping your arm spilling your drink. Then it would be easy communicating with you! Then the I’m sorry, I’ll buy you another one conversation could begin!
      Would it be a giant leap of faith to believe?

      1. Yes, I’m generalizing of coz. But it’s my experience tho. I never been lucky lol and I met fkn REALLY LOTS OF PPL FROM ONLINE!! => my Insta-followers, my FB-followers, couchsurfing-followers, and even Twitter-followers. And I had really bad (scary lol) experiences!
        Yes I understand you r maybe shy in real life and on inet is easy to say what you are & how you think!!! But you have to learn to talk to girls/ppl and stop being shy. Bcz also I met a guy who was really cool while chatting but when I met him (was in Milan lol) – gosh, he was totally sucks in reality …I mean I said ‘bye’ after 30 min (and believe me, I do it seldom, cuz I’m too kind), simply it was too boring (I spoke all 30 min lol and I got tired to talk). Of course…sometimes ppl r shy but they are still interesting people and they can make conversation going etc..
        It’s ok if you’d step on my roll or spill on me lol I’m usually never angry at it…it’s more sad when ppl have nothing to talk about or bored by each other’s company. Hopefully it is NOT our case, Kinky haha

      2. It’s true…I’m shy too 🙂 = I’ve BEEN there!
        It’s the art: how to break the shyness…
        I can come to the room and nobody will notice or I’ll come to the room & everybody will notice.
        We all need love! ❤️ I never felt any huge love from anyone (except animals), so I’m not sure I could teach it. Hm. Maybe…
        In any case I have to tell you…connection is most important. It’s a kind of chemistry. It clicks or not. Doesn’t matter how quiet or shy or mad or merry u r…

      3. I have never thought about not being shy! However, since the subject is in front of me maybe a little internal inspection is due. Starting with …………”self worth” maybe? It has to start some where!
        Reading the piece that you re-blogged, was like looking in a ‘cracked mirror!

      4. Ok…you should start somewhere. Anyway, it’s ok to be shy. But it doesn’t mean a girl should do all the talking 🙂 not 24/7 haha I’m actually prefer to be quiet often too

      5. About being shy. Its ok to be shy. But in some situations (ops! Often! bcz otherwise ppl will eat you up lol or won’t see – you exist/breathe) you have to “forget” about shyness. I think Id probably describe myself as – calm, quiet.
        Not sure if shy…in some situations maybe.

      6. Maybe some of the cake added to your sweetness also!
        Really nice to have you and the Pups back!!
        I think it was SO KOOL of you to open your ‘room’ to everyone! Excellent idea! 🙂 🙂

      7. Yes…it will be fun :)) New for me. I know nothing about room-designs but I’ll do what I like bcz it’s my own working-hobby-room (I have one more own room, it’s my bedroom, I’ll decorate it black & white, maybe I’ll post later, in may).
        I never had my own room as a child and a teen and actually before my third marriage I never had own room… so it’s def a fun :))
        Cakes!!! I had a Danish pastry today, but a small one haha

  2. I am still awaiting Ms. RayNotBradbury return! Sitting with her followers, enjoying a cup of tea/coffee and discussing her ‘weekend’ photos! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  3. The ‘weekend’ and ‘puddle’ behind ‘us’. The ‘Ocean” is next. Easter Monday reminds me of the feeling, a balloon must have when all of the air is let out!
    Empty? No way at this moment. Full of ‘shoulds , and should not’s. Thou ‘should not’ “should” on thyself! Easier said than done!
    Told untruths, presented an untrue face and felt unmoved while doing it! Monday and I am kicking my ass for the ‘character’ I played! Why is it so hard to be honest at times?
    Again, this writing is my own, and has no reflection of the ‘blog’ owner’s views!

      1. Sunday was OK! However, I think I presented a ‘false’ face to some that I interacted with! Pretending to be happy at seeing and speaking with them and I was NOT! Sometimes it feels as though I take 6 steps forward just to lose that momentum by doing something I will regret later!
        ?”including You” ? no, nothing I mentioned had to do with you! Now, if I had said I missed someone ‘special’, that Ms. Ray would have been YOU! 🙂

      2. Ok..I kinda understand, not really lol 🙂 I do understand what u mean in general tho.
        Mmmm, you’ll miss me kinda a lot I guess, bcz spring – summer r busy times & I also have relatives coming in middle of may (my mum & cousin) ..I’ll probably will blog only 4 times a week. I don’t know, it will be different: some days a lot, some days nothing :)) I do what I can.

      3. Just relaxing and plus some house routines. I want to do some spring -cleaning = throw away things I won’t use, and also I’m going to redesign work-room & outside place in the garden near kitchen & maybe some dining room. It’s lots of work…

      4. Spring and summer will be a “miss U a lot time”! Summer is always busier here!
        California, Nevada, Utah and possibility to Washington State!
        This may sound silly to you but I will say it anyway.
        If I was asked today what would be my most desired wish, it would be to be in your favorite bakery and having coffer or tea with you! Let’s not forget cinnamon rolls! 🙂 🙂 It’s a fantasy, a polite and meaningful one! STOP Laughing!!
        Miss you when you are gone!

      5. Haha who knows maybe I’d get scared and ran far far away from that bakery 🙂 one thing is online chat, another thing is real meet-up. But nice dream :))oh, now I’m hungry lol but I have to sleep…

      6. Nope I wouldn’t I guess…
        I like it as an idea tho, not as the reality haha simply bcz ppl – online & ppl-real are very different, like + & – and I find it annoying/irritating when I have to pretend to like something I don’t..

  4. The “puddle” seems as though it serves as a ‘safe’ place this weekend!
    Maybe, social anxiety is pulling the strings of this ‘puppet’ like being today!
    There are those that I ‘truly’ love and would attempt moving “heaven and earth” for!
    The ‘others’ seem so self absorbed, so above it all, so not willing to accept a smile, eye to eye contact, so unwilling to accept they are human.
    So today, ‘K’ puppet will try to be pleasant to ‘all’ that I come in contact with!

  5. “Validation” for my existence is still a major pursuit! I believe the purpose of what we celebrate tomorrow “Easter” provides us with a pretty clear picture of “Validation”.
    Happy Easter, and the……..PEACE of mind….. be with you and yours!

      1. Another ‘cotton candy’ brain fog day! Too many folks to please, to many places to go (don’t want to go), too many smiles on my face that are as ’empty’ as an old hollow log. Growing up as a ‘black sheep’, and now supposed to accept these open arms. Boo!
        Still working with the “puddle” and “ocean” !

      3. Reading your reply, and looking at the girl on the left of your page! (YOU)
        She appears to be wearing a ‘chain mail’ blouse (if you will) and beads, shells and other fetishes from her neck down. It appears to form an ‘armor’ and her large hoop ear jewelry remind me of ‘dream catchers’ the Indians use!
        This may not be the ‘correct’ time or place for these observations, but there they are! Hugs!

  6. Beautiful picture! Well spoken, very hard to relate! The ‘puddle’ in my world does not bring ‘life too me, however, as brief as its stay, it provides life!
    So much too try and comprehend these next few days! It’s like having a ‘rodeo’ playing 24/7 in your head.
