Heartfelt: Flamborough, Ontario, Canada

Extending great gratitude to the Tumblr community and many thank you’s to the curators, re-bloggers and supporters of my photography! Very much appreciate all your feedback, commentary and hearts. Saw this beautiful flower on the side of the road (no idea what kind it is), but thought it is perfect to share with you on this wonderful Sunday.  Enjoy! :-)

Also, special thank-you’s out to:

Uzumaki Kurama from “Reverse by Blackkatmagic” @blackkatmagic , please enjoy. Also I’m sorry for the quality of the picture, this is the second attempt and it’s still blurry. Thank you for writing “Reverse”, it’s lovely and filled with just the right amount of bittersweet romance. I’ve loved every moment I’ve spent reading it, so thank you.

The Thing About Being a CNA

Let’s get the most common one out of the way: We change diapers.

We also brush their teeth, bathe them, feed them, help them change clothes, etc. We assist them with just about anything they request (be it safe for them and within legal/monetary/moral limits).

Sometimes they hit us. Why? Usually they have some form of dementia. They do not understand what is happening and they freak out. Or other times they can be alert and oriented but they are angry that they are “a fucking vegetable now”. So they lash out. (I like to believe that they usually feel bad about this afterwards– regardless of mental state.)

Other times, they say thank you.

After a while of having you as an aide they build a relationship with you and form trust. After all, you see them naked on a daily basis and you are literally the hand that feeds them. They start to tell you their life stories (if they remember them). You meet family members as time goes on and they make their daily, weekly, monthly, yearly visits.

A resident starts to love you. You hold their hand when they are scared and hug them when they cry. They make a place in your heart. They become unofficial family members.

That’s the thing about being a CNA. It’s hard work. Nothing is glamorous. You are underpaid and overworked. But you aren’t a CNA for the wages. You are a CNA because of those relationships that you crave so much. You have so much love in your heart that you have to spread it around.

CNA to CNA: We are tough outside but soft on the inside.

Sometimes my heart can be used as a paperweight
Sometimes my heart can fly over the clouds like a bird
It’s not the weight that changes
It’s about the emotions that ride on it.

The emotions that ride on my heart, make it weigh differently.

Midnight whispers

Remove these walls you’ve put around
I want to scream my feelings out.
I’m full with speechless feelings
and I might explode
set me free please,
I can’t take this anymore.
Whispered my heart late at midnight,
with shaking voice and crying eyes…


Phora - Sinner Pt. 2 (2017)

feelin’ this shit heavy…

Please speak softly, for they will hear us
And they’ll find out why we don’t trust them
Speak up dear, ‘cause I cannot hear you
I need to know why we don’t trust them

Explain to me this conspiracy against me
And tell me how I’ve lost my power

Where can I turn? 'Cause I need something more
Surrounded by uncertainty, I’m so unsure
Tell me why I feel so alone 
'Cause I need to know to whom do I owe

Explain to me this conspiracy against me
And tell me how I’ve lost my power

I thought that we’d make it
Because you said that we’d make it through
And when all security fails
Will you be there to help me through?

Explain to me this conspiracy against me
And tell me how I’ve lost my power

How I’ve lost my power?
It’s kinda sad that I still care enough to be here for you in your darkest moments, when you were the cause of mine. It’s kinda sad to think that I loved you to the moon and back and you only loved me until it wasn’t convenient, and yet my heart still goes out to you in sympathy. It’s kinda sad that I still have a heart, even when I’m dealing with the heartless.
I love you okay? Is that too much to handle? Does it make you less attracted to me? Because I said it and I’m not taking it back. I love you,
I love you so much it’s ripping me apart
—  Excerpt from a book I’ll never write
He liked sketching.
He made a sketch of her.
It was just pathetic.
However, she framed it.
When asked by him about this step she replied, “You probably took the same time as Leonardo Da Vinci took for the famous Monalisa. That effort speaks for itself. I want to be sketched in your heart more than on any paper by you and I know how beautiful I look in there.”
And both of them laughed.

Sketch her in your heart.

Hey, I'm feeling somewhat down and your blog is always lovely to read, so could I get some HCs for Ozpin, Yang, Pyrrha and Qrow comforting their s/o, who suffers from a low self-esteem and just ended up doubting their abilities/worth again?


  • He’s rather understanding of their problem, though he wishes they had a bit more confidence in themselves, as they do deserve to
  • He’s surprisingly calm about the situation, but he won’t let them think their anything less than perfect for any amount of time
  • He calmly makes them look him in the eyes and tells them their perfect over and over until he’s completely sure they won’t disagree with him or argue


  • She gets that self-esteem isn’t something that can change overnight, but you’re delusional if you think she doesn’t try
  • She becomes rather intense about telling the otherwise, they know what she has to say instantly
  • Yang will tell them over and over that their great, and if they’re denying it or not really believing her, she’ll pull them into a tight hug and refuse to let go until they say that their amazing


  • She becomes rather upset when their doubting their own self worth, she legitimately feels hurt when she sees them like that
  • When she comforts them, she starts rather softly but does become much more assertive if their still not believing in themselves
  • She’ll eventually just grab their hands and uses the old trick of having them say that their amazing over and over until they start to smile and put emotion behind it


  • It would never cross his mind that his s/o is less than perfect, so when they question it, he’ll momentarily be confused
  • His approach is to be completely honest with them, though he gets an annoyed tone if they try to wave him off
  • When all else fails, he’ll kiss them on the forehead and say: “I don’t really fall in love with anyone I don’t find perfect in every single way.” He’ll then just keep them close until he’s sure they know exactly how much their worth
