make us better

"If art doesn't make us better, then what on earth is it for."-Alice Walker

"Just living is not enough. One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower." ~Hans Christian Anderson

Eating, loving, singing and digesting are, in truth, the four acts of the comic opera known as life, and they pass like bubbles of a bottle of champagne. Whoever lets them break without having enjoyed them is a complete fool. ~Gioacchino Rossini

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” -H. Thurman

don't make me a target

Responsibility    From The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success – Deepak Chopra

Responsibility means not blaming anyone or anything for your situation, including yourself. Having accepted this circumstance, this event, this problem, responsibility then means the ability to have a creative response to the situation as it is now. All problems contain the seeds of opportunity, and this awareness allows you to take the moment and transform it to a better situation or thing.

Once you do this, every so-called upsetting situation will become an opportunity for the creation of something new and beautiful, and every so-called tormentor or tyrant will become your teacher. Reality is an interpretation. And if you choose to interpret reality in this way, you will have many teachers around you, and many opportunities to evolve.

Whenever confronted by a tyrant, tormentor, teacher, friend, or foe (they all mean the same thing) remind yourself, "This moment is as it should be." Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment.

sometimes you just need to say, "fuck it!" and walk on with a smile


I hate the lingering

It fills spaces in messy rooms and shallow cracks
I get up, I go, I feel, I breath
And then I see something,
Hear something,
And you're right back in front of me.

I use to know you,
I use-to put my hand around the small of your back.
I loved you till my skin burned from heavy tears
Like falling leaves memories are floating away

Slight ache seeping through
Trying to focus on any other will not relieve it.
Everything will be ok...
This too shall pass...

The dark shadow will soon be replaced with sun.
Soft breeze carry these troubles with you
And grant me peace with what is left now.

Every time you close a door and nothing opens in its place you've wasted

And when you speak the words you know to those who know the words themselves you're wasted,
You're such a classic waste of cool, so afraid to break the rules in all the wrong places

Then again it's good to get a call
Now and then just to say hello
Have I said I hate to see you go...hate to see you go
-"Wasted" Brandi Carlile

go. don't stop. go.

where can i buy one of these?
