I got everything I need right here with me. I got air in my lungs, a few blank sheets of paper. I love waking up in the morning not knowing what’s gonna happen, or who I’m gonna meet, where I’m gonna wind up. Just the other night I was sleeping under the bridge and now here I am on the grandest ship in the world having champagne with you fine people. I figure life’s a gift and I don’t intend on wasting it. You don’t know what hand you’re gonna get dealt next. You learn to take life as it comes at you, to make each day count.
You can’t lie when you talk with your thoughts.
from The Chrysalids by John Wyndham
If you surrendered to the air, you could ride it.
You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.
If there is a book that you want to read, but it hasn’t been written yet, you must be the one to write it.
“Love is vivid. I never wanted the pale version.”
Don’t ever think I fell for you, or fell over you. I didn’t fall in love, I rose in it. I saw you and made up my mind.
-Toni Morrison (Jazz)
Connection = response. Connection = the flow of being moved and then moving in turn. And disconnection = moving away.
Connection is response. Connection is the flow of being moved and then moving in turn. And disconnection is moving away.
“And one of the great liabilities of life is that all too many people find themselves living amid a great period of social change, and yet they fail to develop the new attitudes, the new mental responses, that the new situation demands. They end up sleeping through a revolution.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
