The Safelight

Friendship is the most valuable thing in this planet where changes, development and mysteries widely occur. A vernal of joy that replenishes and stimulates your lonesome and chaotic living, an antidote for blisters that relieves your grief, solitude and fears, a glimmering light in the dark night of doom, a spending nutrients when you soak and weak, a shadow at you back that holds you when you fall, a reflection that never alters its images and a relic of camaraderie that doesn’t fade and broke apart. Sprinkler of love that never cloy its radiance and sweetness, its flavor and scent and most of all its angelic visage of

“true friends attract, the artificial feeling repels”.

It is the epoch of incredulity and the winter of despair. In the darkroom whether I am sitting, crying and cramming for light. A flickering and shimmering trail of the beam had galore over me not blinking my eyes wondering why and where it comes from, wading from my window and following its traces until I’ve seen a portal and curiously I open it without knowing the key was already in me. I unlock it and a billowing bright smoke and beam had passed through and I saw an Eden of jubilation where mankind is not alone, differently to our chemistry subject that spectacular colors are characteristic of light emitting elements.

How light is produce by atoms?

The light they produce comes from electron transitions that take place within the atom. But the light I’ve seen was different and not logical among others, it glitters and spread like a sun blazing disfiercely, it seems to crackle and exude strong fume of acquaintances and loving earth.

Everything is with pairs and everything is with peers and I know that the real meaning of living was revealed and folded that time. I smiled and unhesitant embraced FRIENDSHIP and they become my shadows in this exiguous survival. It was my dawn of resilience and will never be frightened of the colonizing sunset for now that I will never be alone in this colossal world. They were friends with interminable love and unwavering pedestal---serenity was in me!

When they came into my life my frantic reflection exiled, Inexpressible, immeasurable cares, bliss and blithe fraught my niche with contentment, redemption and salvation. For once in a while my anguish, flabby, and travail had blown away and washed by the great wave of friendship that cleanses and gave hope and strength to carry the heavy baggage’s, to contend and vanquish and for me it was the greatest possession that man could possess. They lead me to the right pathway of life not to be fretted by the foolish words that were thrown to me instead it will serve as a stepping stone to rise up and prove that you can do it! Everything has a reason why it happens and its purpose why it was sent by God.

Northern Lights

Northern Lights

I remembered when I was just in the darkroom frightfully entangled and fiercely frozen; now I realized that there are beautiful benefits and happenings when twilight pervades.

In the mountain of Kaamos In Finland they called it the "dark period" genuinely grim and frosty weather but out in this fury place the mesmerizing luring of northern lights prevails.

This is just the fact that in times of torment and tempest it wrought us to be stronger and Spartan like. In the epoch of agony true shadows reveal, helps you during hardship and ready to sacrifice his life and that’s what friends are for. It guides and cherishes you when at times that you a refugee who seek for embower which true friendship lies.

Run towards your fear and embrace them cause “on the other side of your greatest fear lives your greatest life”.

Reminding us that life is a puzzle if one part is lost everything will be none. And he who loves himself loves nothing because no one is an island we need others to live. It’s easy to find a friend but difficult to find real safelight.

My Virtual World

“Virtual reality is a medium, a means by which humans can share ideas and experiences.” - Alan Craig

It is an adventure that paves for broader imagination and an alternative reality. Virtual can be imaginary or things that can happen without physical attributes. It can be an illusion cause by human hallucination or a medium that provides interaction without explicit contact. The reality of life can be stated and proven through empirical and scientific basis. Everything in this world is defined through our five senses and without any reason and proof, things will remain as theory forever.

I was lost from this dusky island, I don’t know where to run and the crimson sunset seems to lie between the mountains, I walk through the rocky isle ignoring my blistered bleeding feet. I want to escape from this traumatic slavery that I had been bondage for several months. I have nothing to lose since they have stolen all my possessions and all I wanted is to entrain a new life.

In the midst of my journey looking for shelter I found my virtual world which everything is possible? You can go whatever you want; you can be friends with whoever you meet without going outside and talking to them personally. From my brokenness to the real world I was merged again to wholeness by this virtual world through the help of someone which I adore most. By then, I prefer to stay in this virtual realm which nobody can hurt me physically, nobody can ever play my feelings again and nobody can take advantage of me. I just found my niche here in this virtual world with someone who lifted me up from my woundedness and carried me up at the point when I was so down. And for me I found my virtual home with my virtual family.

In this medium nobody knows the real world behind those people who manage to interact with you online.

It is really hard to trust people whom you can’t see and talk with. It’s not just because they are not being real but because you’re protecting yourself against fraudulent and it also serves as a mechanism for you not to be hoax again. People judge through the aid of their five senses and the sense of sight is the sense that matters most in this virtual world. But for me, in this virtual world you can also make use of your sense of touch to feel whose being real and fake because in this world some of the sweetest things happen like affection are only felt and remains unseen.

Online Friends Good or Bad?

On my stay in this alternative reality I find people to care with, but everything that happened was not as easy as everyone would think.

As a victim of the cruelty of the real world where lots of people camouflage through flesh and words it’s really elusive to give your trust again. I have been through several life threatening experiences where I had witnessed innocent and good people which are used by intrinsic creatures. I had bear burdens from my reality which keeps on resonating even in my virtual world. Scammers and unscrupulous web users are the people who should be avoided and I know wherever I go I will encounter bad elements in this world for it has also a gigantic role in maintaining stasis between the real and virtual world.

I had built my new life here in my virtual world through the help of someone which I had never thought will have a big role in building my life again. I don’t know how long that person will stay but I know that person will be imprinted forever in my heart and mind as a gratitude for saving me from the misery of life. And this virtual world had put bridges for us even we’re far from each other we manage to create authentic friendship that will last for a lifetime even if we will never see each other personally; I know we have been great friends from our journey in this infinite virtual reality.

Wonderfully stated wisdom about friendship! I chose only the first answer in your first poll, but I think every one of the descriptions fit a real friend. Well except for the word "cruelly" being with honest. A friend always gives an honest opinion, but does so in a a kindly manner. As for on-line friends ... there are some I trust and some I' still trying to figure out. The ones I trust seem to much better friends than most of the friends I have in the real world.
