Calming..




I really wonder what is it about the sight of flowers that calms me?

It is not my nature to spend more time in the garden. But beautiful flowers will never leave my pieces of home decors for I love the light emotions they radiate when I am stressed.

If there is such a thing as smell therapy, flowers will never be left out on my list. In my bath room, I placed varied color of flowers to complement the light shining above my window.

Flowers have a very cathartic effect on me. Helps in de-stressing me.

Something I need after reading bad news on the recent Israeli offensives in Gaza strip killing many innocent Muslims who are mostly children and women.

My energy is being drained by so much violence as a consequence of a political struggle between the Hamas and Fatah, the two rival and politically irreconcilable groups in the Palestinian territories.

It is too enraging to see innocent kids and mothers suffering..ahh..I need more flowers for today.

I agree, AV. It is so disheartening.:(

Such is the state of affairs nowadays. As they say, violence begets violence. Hamas is also guilty of launching rocket attacks to Israel and Israel retaliated by bombing the Gaza strip and in the process killed innocent Palestinian civilians. Only God knows when violence will ever stop in the Middle East.
