Either you get bitter or you get better. It's that simple. You either take what has been dealt to you and allow it to make you a better person, or you allow it to tear you down. The choice does not belong to fate, it belongs to...

To Risk

By William Arthur Ward on March 22, 2018 / 1,513 views

By William Arthur Ward on March 22, 2018 / 1,513 views

To laugh is to risk appearing a fool, To weep is to risk appearing sentimental. To reach out to another is to risk involvement, To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self. To place your ideas and dreams before a crowd is to risk their loss. To love is to risk not being loved in return, To live is to risk dying, To hope is...

On a cold, snowy day in March my cat, Dixie died. I walked into the bathroom to find her lying motionless. I stroked her head, and gently held her in my arms. Then I carried her to the woods behind my house to bury her. I tried not to cry as I walked. She had lived sixteen years, after all. I knew her health was fading too. Always a skinny cat she had been eating less and less lately until I could feel her...

When I was 13 I wanted to learn guitar but I saw on TV some kid who was 11 and a child prodigy and I thought "I waited too long, now I'll be a beginner while kids like that are already great." Then I was 23 and thought "Oh man if I had just started at 13 I would have ten years experience by now! But now why bother?" At 33 I realized, damn if I had just started at...

Dust If You Must

By Rose Milligan on March 15, 2018 / 2,107 views

Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better To paint a picture, or write a letter, Bake a cake, or plant a seed; Ponder the difference between want and need? Dust if you must, but there's not much time, With rivers to swim, and mountains to climb; Music to hear, and books to read; Friends to cherish, and life to lead. Dust if you...

For years I have lived this lie telling everyone I am allergic to peanuts because I hate the smell of peanut butter and don't really like peanut butter that much but whenever I used to tell people I don't like peanut butter they'd get all defensive like "peanut butter is amazing how do you not like it?!" and then I'd have to go into this whole thing to defend my taste...

It was a beautiful morning. I was still asleep in my bed when the rising sun sneaked through my curtains and tapped me on my eyelids. I quickly woke up and walked into my living room. My cat was sitting on top of my desk soaking in the sun that shone through the widow. I smiled at her as I leashed up my dogs and headed outside. I took my time walking them too. It was cold and frost was on the grass, but I...

My car recently broke down about 30 miles from home. Someone stopped and asked if I needed help. I said I wasn’t sure how to get my car back to my local mechanic since my insurance didn’t cover towing. They used their AAA membership to call for a tow, waited around for it to show up and signed all the paperwork. More people need to be like...

One night, a mother held her five year old son on her lap and sat on the balcony. The star streaked sky was looking marvellous! Both of them stared the twinkling stars. The little boy pointed towards the sky and asked so many questions about the moon and the wonderful sky. Though his little mind was filled with strange questions, his mother patiently answered them and satisfied him. After an hour was spent in...

I got a lovely gift in the mail last week. It was a pair of framed pictures. Both were high resolution photographs of birds. They were so beautiful. One in particular caught my eye. It was of a hummingbird frozen in mid-flight. It was flying upside down with its tail feathers held up to hold it steady while its little wings beat. Its long, needle nose was reaching deep into a drooping flower to feast on its...

From a young age I was bullied. At school, at home and pretty much everywhere I went. It felt like it was me against the world. It's strange really, how a few words can change the course of your life. For me it was more than just words but I am however not yet ready to tell that side of my story. When I was a kid I remember feeling lost, lonely and fragile. I was surrounded by so many people but I just...

It was truly the most beautiful thing to watch, as the tiny hint of a smile slowly spread across his face and reached his beautiful eyes.

His happiness was infectious as it slowly crept into the hearts of everyone present there. He was none other than the most beautiful creation of...

I really wanted to meet this guy, I mean really meet him. I'll admit, looking back I was immensely infatuated with him. In this age of social media, I would stalk his FB page, check his Twitter account, everything you could think of, I did, just to see what he was up to. He was on one of my favourite TV shows. He seemed like such a nice, talented, driven guy. Funny and smart. Not to mention gorgeous!...
