It was never that my old ways
Of spontaneous deception weren’t serving me
They could get me whatever I wanted
But sooner or later, the rip tide comes
Thrusts you onto the ground, face full of sand
The sobs seemed unending
The force of it all nearly killed me
These poor souls, and who was I to parade
Around, stepping on hearts, carelessly?
I started to want different things
Things I was so unfamiliar with
I almost gave up, gave in to the madness
Almost handed my soul to the devil
Because I thought he deserved it
And I deserved him
But then, I stood up
Sometimes with such vague conviction
That this time, from here on out
I would never let another difficulty
I would help
Those who need me
He had many gems for quotes, but these are some good ones. Enjoy!
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.
I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.
If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself.
Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.
I must be willing to give up what I am in order to become what I will be.
Time is an illusion.
Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.
Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by it’s ability to climb a tree, it will live it’s whole life believing that it is stupid.
If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairytales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairytales.
Once you accept the universe as matter expanding into nothing that is something, wearing stripes with plaid comes easy.
Some musings from September 2013
Some new additions at home
And new beginnings
With hazel tintings
Pastries and postmen
Around the bend
To familiar nutcracker men
Traditions and songs
Don’t hold back
Making lives spin
Like the train on the track
To life, to growth
To new beginnings
