Update

I have deleted a YouTube entry of Apocalyptica - Farewell because I actually posted it A WEEK AGO, only to surface here on my blog a little too late. Although I love the clip very much (the one by californication11 with WH Auden's poem entitled Funeral Blues), I no longer feel that way about things. It's too morbid. Hence, if anyone wants to check out the piece, you can go to You Tube. pausetoreflect.blogspot isn't going to tolerate such things at the moment!!
Been very breezy lately. Well, that's probably an understatement. We've been hit by gales of fury - so strong and harsh, the cold biting into our bones. At times, the sunrays give us hope that it is as warm as it looks. Can't complain though because at least the washing gets dry on the lines.
While this should be an entry of what we did on Saturday, 8th March and the day after, I have to disappoint kind readers; it isn't. Am a little bit off blogging right now, hence the absence of entries. Come on, more to life than blogging! Wink* wink*
Therefore, this is just a quickie, reporting on how I feel after going through a mourning period of 4 months and 10 days.
Charged up.
Jubilated.
Energized.
Confident.
Composed.
Hopeful.
Full of strength.
Full of faith.
Isn't that good news? Alhamdulillah...

Mak Teh said...

Alhamdulillah ! A word of advice though, do not rush into anything not so sensible. Jangan marah, mak teh is telling this from experience. Will tell you more later if you want to know. There are emotional traps for people like you.

NJ said...

As cliché as it may sound, life does go on dear. Wishing you all the best in your next life journey. Insyaallah may you be in His Guidance always!

Kak Teh said...

D, you are the most level headed person, judging from what you have written after what you have been through. Only you know what is best for you. Take care and may Allah be with you in whatever you decide to do.

Raden Galoh said...
