Cat’s Eyes

Do you ever feel.

Feel like someone.

Out there.

Is watching you.

Dystopia

The chants of the masses…

We made it!

They chant.

We made what!?

So do something

Just off Camden Street.

Is a piece of art.

A piece of truth.

And a piece of reality.

‘U ARE ALIVE*’

Waves

It keeps coming.

In waves.

In waves and waves.

It looms and batters.

It bends and destroys.

It keeps coming.

In waves.

In waves and waves.

It’s ominous and powerful.

It’s monstrous and repetitive.

It keeps coming.

In waves.

In waves and waves.

I see it coming.

I know it’s near.

The ebb and flow.

The retreat and crash.

Life.

It keeps coming.

In waves.

In waves and waves.

It brings goodness from the deep.

Leaves destruction in its wake.

It keeps on coming.

In waves.

In waves and waves.

But I am the shore.

Unmovable.

Changeable.

But unmovable.

That is All

Sometimes we don’t see the beauty of the city around us.

We are too enveloped in our own lives.

We are engrossed in our own world.

We have made islands of ourselves.

Secluded from the outside world.

We miss the color.

The pomp.

The vibrancy.

The contrast.

We miss the essence of what makes the city.

All it takes is something different.

A glance in a new direction.

An extra second before the lights change.

All it takes is something different.

That is all.

There is much much more to the things we see everyday. That place you walked by has a story you will never know until you ask the right question. That cafe who’s owner has a tale to tell. That piece of art that was inspired by a story you’ll struggle to believe. You just have to pause, wonder, ask.

That is all.

In the beginning

I’m inspired by greatness.

I’m excited by possibilities.

I’m grateful for friendships.

Big things start with little ideas.

Huge actions start with small motions.

As great as the end product tends to be.

It is the build up that excites me.

Those first few brushstrokes.

Turning the dial on the camera.

I think sometimes.

We are too focused on the end product.

To enjoy the process.

I think sometimes

we are too focused on delivering.

To know where we are.

I think sometimes.

We are so overwhelmed by pressure.

We forget our friends.

We forget our mentors.

We forget our heroes.

I think sometimes.

We forget.

We just forget.

Why we started.

In the first place.

In Time

There are moments in time.

Little moments in time.

That make all the difference.

There are moments in time.

Little moments in time.

That mean a little more.

There are moments in time.

Little moments in time.

That leave a mark on me.

Moments like these.

Are few.

They’re far between.

Moments like these.

Are new.

They’re why we’re here.

In time.

They’ll come.

In time.

They’ll be yours.

In time.

Hello There

Hello there.

Hello there you.

Well hello!

Are you well?

Because you’re looking well.

What are you doing down there.

Down here.

On your own.

In the back room.

At the side.

On your own.

You’re pretty cool.

You’re really cool, don’t you know?

The party is in full swing.

There’s people looking for you.

Come join the party.

Before it’s over.

I am Timi

Brick by Brick

It takes a little, to make a lot.

A little.

A little more.

And a little more again.

It takes many bricks.

To build a house.

But you always start with one.

One brick.

One brick more.

And another brick again.

It takes perseverance.

It takes dedication.

It takes a brick.

Then another.

It takes a little, to make a lot.

Happiness

I was sitting sipping on a cup of tea at a very informal interview.

I was asked a question.

A funny one.

The kind of question that makes you sit back.

 The kind of question that makes you think for a second longer.

“What makes you happy?”

Easy words to utter, a difficult reply to put together.

How do you explain something so difficult, yet easy a concept to understand.

Happiness.

What makes me smile?

What makes my heart skip a beat?

What gives me that extra pep in my step?

Happiness.

It doesn’t take much.

Not much to make me happy.

A stroll along the river.

Having a camera in my hand.

It doesn’t take much.

Not much to make me happy.

Happiness is like a production line in a factory.

You flick a switch.

It takes some time.

It takes procedures.

It takes more time.

Then the line gets moving.

Happiness is made.

Happiness is self sustaining.

However factories always have issues along the line.

Do you shut down the machine?

Do you stop producing happiness?

Do you fix the problem on the line?

Flicking the switch off means going through the process.

The process of getting the line moving again.

Do you see the point?

Happiness is down to you.

You are in control of the switch.

Happiness is inside you.

Flick on the switch.

Let happiness sustain itself.

Love

Love.

Love is weird.

Love.

Love is rocky yet smooth.

Love

Love is painful yet soothing. 

Love.

Love is frightening yet comforting.

Love.

Love is horrible yet beautiful.

Love.

Love is weird yet wonderful.

Love.

Love is weird.

If you were to take a walk around Dublin town, you’d spot a multitude of stickers in this form that touch on the daily life of Dublin. They are simple yet they cut so deep. They tell hard truths and they make you smile. 

Touch

Leave your touch on me.

I stand still.

Life passes by.

Life passes by.

In single stills.

I see each still.

As it passes by.

I look and listen.

I take my fill.

I stand still.

Life passes by.

In life is you.

You and all of you.

I ask one thing.

One thing of you.

If you should see me.

Leave your touch on me.

I am Timi
