Random quote of the day:

“If fear predominates, then you can’t see what is actually going on around you, because fear is darkness, and in darkness you can see absolutely nothing. If you realize that, then you can see the world actually as it is, then you can see yourself actually as who you are. Because you are the world, and the world is you; they are not two separate entities.”

—J. Krishnamurti, “How To Live In This World,” The Urgency of Change

I’ve fallen out of love. It can’t be helped. Time and distance will do that.

 3 Aug
Sometimes it is important to know when not to be a smart ass. I’ll let you know when I’ve learned that lesson.

4 Aug
If you have to hold the hem of your skirt as you walk to keep it from riding up over your ass it’s too short. Some of the men might disagree.

5 Aug
Sometimes people who yell the loudest about injustice are the ones who don’t think the rules apply to them.

6 Aug
Bought a ceramic hand jewelry stand, something I’ve wanted since I was a teenager. I realized a second later I got it mostly for that teenager.

9 Aug
Saw a crew card with “Blind Decker” posted in Venice earlier in the week. I’d swear I saw one just like it posted last year (season?).  I don’t watch the show so don’t know if he repeatedly goes blind or if it’s a continuation, but it was posted in the same exact neighborhood.

Dear Paul Ryan: The law of nature is kill or be killed, eat or be eaten. I guess I know which side of that law you’re on. Thems that gots.

13 Aug
There’s a world of difference between thinking up dark things to do to your characters and understanding the dark.

19 Aug
It’s tough when you Know Everything and someone comes along who knows a little more and calls your bluff.

21 Aug
I never thought I’d be this person. Life catches you unawares.

She considers herself a good Christian, espouses Christian values with great passion and eloquence. Yet when she gets judgmental and gossipy (which is frequent) her body gets tight and twitchy, unable to stay quiet, her voice constricted and strained, as if her spirit, her better angels, and her mind are waging a fierce struggle with each other.

 

 

Random quote of the day:

 

“How is one to live a moral and compassionate existence when one is fully aware of the blood, the horror inherent in life, when one finds darkness not only in one’s culture but within oneself? If there is a stage at which an individual life becomes truly adult, it must be when one grasps the irony in its unfolding and accepts responsibility for a life lived in the midst of such paradox. One must live in the middle of contradiction, because if all contradiction were eliminated at once life would collapse. There are simply no answers to some of the great pressing questions. You continue to live them out, making your life a worthy expression of leaning into the light.”

—Barry Lopez, Arctic Dreams

Random quote of the day:

 

“Read any daily paper.  You’ve got to survive.  You’ve got to walk through the dark to get to the light.  It isn’t free.  It takes courage to walk through the dark.”
