"People are lonely because they build walls instead of bridges." ~ Joseph F. Newton
Never Ignore the Ones You Love.
"Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, and misses you. Because one day, you might wake up from your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting the stars." ~unknown

Out of Place
“I occasionally experience myself as a cluster of flowing currents. I
prefer this to the idea of a solid self, the identity to which so many
attach so much significance. These currents, like the themes of one life, flow along during the waking hours, and at their best, they require no reconciling, no harmonizing. They are “off” and may be out of place, but at least they are always in motion, in time, in place, in the form of all kinds of strange combinations moving about, not necessarily forward, sometimes against each other, contrapuntally yet without one central theme. A form of freedom, I’d like to think, even if I am far from being totally convinced that it is. That skepticism too is one of the themes I particularly want to hold on to. With so many dissonances in my life I have learned actually to prefer being not quite right and out of place.”
-Edward Said, from his memoir Out of Place
"I am going to give you a piece of advice...advice I wish I'd been told in guidance class back in high school, in between the don't-do-acid and don't-drink-and-drive films. I wish our counselors had told us'When you grow older a dreadful, horrible sensation will come over you. It's called loneliness, and you think you know what it is now, but you don't. Here is the list of the symptoms, and don't worry— loneliness is the most universal sensation on the planet. Just remember one fact—loneliness will pass. You will survive and you will be a better human for it."
— Douglas Coupland ( Shampoo Planet)
I'll keep this simple and short. I promise to do my best in providing the most interesting things that I find worth sharing. And in the process, I quote Mr. Langston Hughes ...
I stay cool, and dig all jive,
That's the way I stay alive.
as I live and learn,
Dig and be dug
