Sincere good heart ensures benefits abound
Essential to develop our wisdom
Realise the full potential of kindness
Everyone has this precious inner core
Negativities gradually fade away
Developing more healthy attitudes
Interdependence helps all unite
Persistent effort is also needed
Inspire others by being an example
Treat yourself and others very well to grow
Yields everything that you could ever wish!

Word of the day – serendipity

The Decuain (pronounced deck•won), created by Shelley A. Cephas, is a short poem made up of 10 lines, which can be written on any subject. There are 10 syllables per line, written in iambic pentameter. For mindlovemisery …


  1. What would be lost
    What would be missed
    If I chose to remain
    Perpetually pissed.
    What would the universe
    Possibly care
    If I chose to stay blissfully
    Drunk. Unaware.
    What would it mean
    To engage with my soul
    When it and I both
    Will end up in a hole.

  2. “potential of kindness” – I enjoy thinking on that. Enjoyed your chatter with Richmond Road. Do you think anyone takes the event of death so lightly? I’m not being critical; just wondering. In my worldview and experience it is so serious.

    • I and many others take it very seriously contemplating our own death daily in order to be well prepared, but we also see the humour.
      I have worked in palliative care/ hospice work for years so truly know it’s inevitable … it’s not frightening or painful. If all pain is correctly reported it can be controlled. Most people die very comfortably and with dignity unless their is deep emotional pain that they haven’t dealt with.
      The reason I do a few posts on this topic 🙂

      • I have a sister in hospice care (home) now. She has walked the cancer road for many years but this last year has been unbelievably hard. So much pain. However I understand she has had some radiation that has lessened the pain now. She is now at 88 pounds after a normal weight of 140. She knows death is near and awaits the change. Hard time. I have another friend who is living day by day with little change for more than a few weeks. Her family is so noble as they walk this way with her. Yes, calmkate, you can be a first hand help for many as you have experienced so much.
