--EVERYTHING IS FLEETING. EVEN UGLINESS. EVEN PAIN.
…I’m still hungover from my night seeing Ryan Adams. (that’s him up top.) Hence, I’ve not been very productive, or least that’s my excuse. You on the other hand, are probably getting plenty done. Congratulations.
…So here are some things I like on a Wednesday:
-“Hope is neither passive waiting nor is it the unrealistic forming of circumstances that cannot occur. It is like the crouched tiger, which will jump only when the moment for jumping has come. “ Erich Fromm

-“Would it spoil the moment for you if I threw up?”
-“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” Pablo Picasso
