an entrapment of ‘ifs’ and ‘hurrah’ blockading today.
This piece was inspired by the line ‘I can see us wearing yesterday’ a line from MUGILAN RAJU poem, titled All that I can see (click on the link to read it). I hope he will forgive me for borrowing the line as it struck a cord with my muse straightaway.

Lumequies is a made up word from two Latin words (lumen and quies)
from looters. A sip, a kiss, the tongue comes undone
alas! it held no secret.
In the multitude of words sin is not lacking,
But he who restrains his lips is wise.
Proverbs 10:19 New King James Version (NKJV)
When something upsets me I tend to get either very quiet or very verbose. I have discovered that when I go quite it’s either because I’m not sure of my footing in that circumstance .i.e I don’t really know what my rights are. And when I become verbose I often get blinded to other people’s right and opinion. This week I think I fell victim to the latter, I don’t really regret it, however, in hindsight I perhaps went a little overboard. I don’t want to speak too much or too little, I just want to say and do things aptly, in the right amount.
I have a few question for you guys especially those who work in close confines with their clients e.g. doctors, nurses, social workers etc.:
How do you maintain a professional outlook and is it important to do so?
Does becoming involved in a clients life impair your ability to point out areas of worry or conflict?
How do you maintain the balance when your job to an extent requires raising awareness which often requires some level of socialization?
Feel free to contribute even if you work in a different field.
