THE GEM 31 JULY 2018 : “LIFE IS LIKE THE RIVER, SOMETIMES IT SWEEPS YOU GENTLY ALONG AND SOMETIMES THE RAPIDS COME OUT OF NOWHERE.” EMMA SMITH

Striking out 
To reach you
I can’t get through 
To the other side
When you’re racing 
In the rapids
There’s only one way
That’s to ride

GENESIS

THE GEM 3 DEC 2014 : I stood still, vision blurring, and in that moment, I heard my heart break. It was a small, clean sound, like the snapping of a flower’s stem.

“Who would deduce the dragonfly from the larva, the iris from the bud, the lawyer from the infant? …We are all shape-shifters and magical reinventors. Life is really a plural noun, a caravan of selves.”

― Diane Ackerman

“When fear and cold make a statue of you in your bed, don’t expect hard-boned and fleshless truth to come running to your aid. What you need are the plump comforts of a story. The soothing, rocking safety of a lie.”

― Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale

Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, 
even though they have been held in honour 
for many generations and in diverse places. 
Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. 
Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. 
Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, 
persuading yourself that a God inspires you.
Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. 
After examination, believe what you yourself have tested 
and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.


Buddha
