A Billion Stars, and a Billion More

This story gets me through.

Taking a step towards the door, I felt myself drawn by the same invisible force that had enchanted the snow. Not only did it have a hold of my body, but it had a hold of my soul, and even though I at first fought against it, the moment I surrendered, the music flowed through me as if I were water. Turning to Rusty, he nodded in approval as my feet lifted off the ground, and as I floated through the air, so the animals came and sat by his side. Even the trees temporarily ceased their dance to stoop down low enough to listen to the chatter that passed back and forth between lip and beak.

“Remember the things you’ve seen,” Rusty said, “and remember what it is you are.”

I made to respond, yet the energy coming from the door was doing many a strange thing to me.

Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha

We rough, unrefined rocks have been tossed into the fire of life.

Those who cling to outdated ideals, who don’t honor the evidence they’re shown, who cling to comfort and simplicity when called upon to rise, will slowly and predictably be burned with suffering , then melted down into meaningless slag.

But those of who continually refine ourselves, who cut away the dull ore and polish what is left, we are neither burned nor melted.

We are forged.

The Bedrooms of Famous Writers

irevuo

A friend of mine once told me that when we read a book by some author long dead, we sometimes feel as if we know them on a personal level, while when we read a book written by a friend, this makes us feel as if we’ve never truly known them. Truth is, there are a lot of aspects when it comes to understanding another person. Their work, their life, their habits, the people they surround themselves with. And every single one of them plays a part in shaping their art.

Today, we try to get a bit more insight into the minds of famous writers by visiting their bedrooms

What if I fall?

“Idealism is a bizarre mixture of hope, naivety, and enthusiasm.

Courage. Ambition. Perseverance.

You’ll have all that, and a lot more, when your belief in the possibility of succeeding becomes stronger than your fear of failure.”

Cristian Mihai

“What if I fall?” 
“Oh my darling, what if you fly?”

Do you ever ask yourself if you like the person you are? If you are who you’ve always wanted to be? Do you know who you want to be?

To be honest, it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I realized who I really wanted to be. I want to be that guy who tells people they can fly. I want to see the magic they have stored up in their hearts for so long. And I want to make them see it, I want to make them use it. Because, truth be told, falling is just another way to fly.

Through The Dark

Beautiful words as usual from Sarah Doughty

Heartstring Eulogies

“I’ll keep trying to find my way through the dark.
Find my way back to you.”

Peace is something I’ve been searching for. Sometimes I find it, but it’s always fleeting. Perhaps it’s just me, but it feels as though I’m stuck on a turntable, unable to find my way back to where I need to be. Maybe one day, I’ll find that solace again. But until then, I’ll keep trying to find my way through the dark. Find my way back to you.

Because I know, sooner
or later, I’ll get through it.

Just one more inch

So close that’s usually how I do

Not usually you hit the mark

Or Right on

I hear

So close

You were this close

If only you made it just one more inch

Maybe living will be my talent

The one thing I did right

They’ll Mention it in my eulogy

As if I mastered the art of being alive

Not that it’s something to master

There’s no right way to be alive

That’s what I’d say

(My husband may disagree)
