“'What’s the world’s greatest lie?' The boy asked, completely surprised.
‘It’s this: that at a certain point in our lives, we lose control of what’s happening to us, and our lives become controlled by fate. That is the world’s greatest lie.’”
— Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (via larmoyante)

“So when people I like do something terrible,” I said, “I just flense them and forgive them.”
”Flense?” he said. “What’s flense?”
“It’s what whalers used to do to whale carcasses when they got them on board,” I said. “They would strip off the skin and blubber and meat right down to the skeleton. I do that in my head to people—get rid of all the meat so I can see nothing but their souls. Then I forgive them.”
— Bluebeard, Kurt Vonnegut (via conor-broberst)

“Everything appears to me to be an artificial construction of the mind. Every mark by someone else, every chance look throws everything in me over on the other side, even what has been forgotten, even what is entirely insignificant. I am more uncertain than I ever was; I feel only the power of life. And I am senselessly empty.”
— Franz Kafka, from “Diaries”

1:25 am ramblings
Been so busy trying to play catch up with responsibilities and adulthood that I’ve forgotten to take some time for myself and just be content with the now. I miss exploring on my own and just being a spec of dust among crowds. I just want to quietly explore and exist for a little. It’s been so long that making plans alone makes me anxious.
Things to get done by Saturday:
- make a sweet mix cd for the drive
- go to museums in los angeles
- bring camera stuff
- bring a book and read somewhere with a pleasant scenery

October in the Chair on Flickr.
"It’s fine," said October. His beard was all colors, a grove of trees in autumn, deep brown and fire-orange and wine-red, an untrimmed tangle across the lower half of his face. His cheeks were apple-red. He looked like a friend; like someone you had known all your life. "September can go first. Let’s just get it rolling."
-Neil Gaiman “October in the Chair”
I love my wonderful fellow Montanan Brad Wagner and the fact that his beautiful photography just got reblogged by a really famous writer.

“Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.”
