"I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time." — A.A. Milne

All day...

"The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden." — Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

"If you're not having fun, you're doing something wrong." — Groucho Marx

“If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place.” ― Nora Roberts

How does a part of the world leave the world? How can wetness leave water? Do not try to put out a fire by throwing on more fire. Do not wash a wound with blood. No matter how fast you run, your shadow more than keeps up. Sometimes it's in front. Only full, overhead sun diminishes your shadow. But that shadow has been serving you. What hurts you blesses you. Darkness is your candle. Your boundaries are your quest." — Rumi

"Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. But you are eternity and you are the mirror." — Kahlil Gibran

On my way to you...

-Georgia Okeeffe,  Starlight Night,  1922

Air - How Does It Make You Feel

The Kinks - Love Me Till The Sun Shines

Slipped Through the Fingers of Ambiguity

Here when gone
The essence remains
my vagrant heart
believes in love's domain

Clarity tugs at my leg
Wants to get picked up
I ignore and proffer it
drinking from confusion's cup

The skin on my teeth has a tear
But there is light in my eyes
All of my knots
Have now been untied

There is nothing to say
I made peace with this
Now it's clear
No longer a grey mist

Always a pile
Never a single strand
Felt myself get quiet 
Never want to demand 

An open field 
With empty hands 
Never to break
That which does not bend

“If you wish to glimpse inside a human soul and get to know a man, don't bother analyzing his ways of being silent, of talking, of weeping, of seeing how much he is moved by noble ideas; you will get better results if you just watch him laugh. If he laughs well, he's a good man.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky

For some people, “the point of no return” begins at the very moment their souls become aware of each others’ existence.

“Words make you think. Music makes you feel. A song makes you feel a thought.” ― E.Y. Harburg

“Among those whom I like or admire, I can find no common denominator, but among those whom I love, I can; all of them make me laugh.” ― W.H. Auden

“Yet there are moments when the walls of the mind grow thin; when nothing is unabsorbed, and I could fancy that we might blow so vast a bubble that the sun might set and rise in it and we might take the blue of midday and the black of midnight and be cast off and escape from here and now.” ― Virginia Woolf

When you trip over love, it is easy to get up. But when you fall in love, it is impossible to stand again.” ― Albert Einstein

The first thing we need to do is recognize and trust our own Inner Nature, and not lose sight of it. — Benjamin Hoff
