Thinking in squares, round and round. A bit like a merry-go-round. Coming off and coming on. Literally.  

A lesson in pacing myself; spacing time out. Not minding much- it’s okay- but I think that you would like all these little things I am seeing and I want to tell you all about them without having to tell you about them. 

Shoes everywhere, on my floor. Things. Continually tidying my room, but I don’t mind so much anymore. I like my room. I’ve laughed here, I’ve cried here and there are some very intimate memories in here. 

Maybe there will be this nothingness after there was a somethingness. Everyone has their fingers crossed, their half-smiles, their gladness that something good came out of these past few months.

But don’t you see, I feel like saying, I had to do everything. I had to go down to come back up. I had to learn this, now. So much good has come out of it. It has just taken a while to see. I had to go a little roundabout way to understand something fundamental about myself that I’ve always known. 

But back to this particular thought cloud- I am not so afraid of the nothingness as I would have been. I am just tired, is all. Tired of the somethingness that will come around again. Tired of the motions, tired of the rush of emotion and excitement, ecstasy. 

There is a lot of truth that I value in the bits of wisdom people have shelled out for me. Learning to love yourself covers so many things and explains so many things. I see it now. 

Worth, worth, what is my worth? I know what it is. Worth is 17 year old Amanda, eyes open to the dusk and feeling the landslide fall around the emotions of that sleepy afternoon.

The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.
