“Every man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across the mind from within, more than the lustre of the firmament of bards and sages.” – Waldo Emerson
Why is it that we leave the pivotal things in life unsaid? Or whisper them last-minute in hushed tones during crises and funerals?
This Little Rooftop is a soft landing pad for the glimmers of light which flash across my mind; where I give voice to that which might otherwise go unspoken; where I welcome home stray thoughts along the fringes; where I subvert my own ignorance and unveil long-resident illusions embedded in my beliefs and self-imposed limitations.
My goal is to destroy life as I’ve known it, that I might begin anew. Kinder-Garten of sorts. I am not keen on self-improvement or even trying to be the ‘best’ version of myself (though this surely is tempting). This girl does not care for conventional wisdoms… nah, not looking for anything particularly well-recommended, sexy or novel. No life-hacks, platitudes or aphorisms.
I simply want to start again on sane, true foundations – just those deep, disruptive, uncontainable, life-breathing truths that don’t get enough airplay.
Join me as I endeavour to reveal the grim underbelly of untruths that distort my life, and shower light into my stony heart (and maybe yours too).
Hold up!… on further introspection, I realize that the real audience here is me. I’m really just prodding, reminding and inspiring myself. Should you chance on anything useful, encouraging, soul-provoking… the joy is doubly mine!
