"They say

a person needs just three things 
to be truly happy in this world: 

someone to love, 
something to do, 
and something to hope for.

 —      Tom Bodett

"Since I forsook the world

and broke off all its ties, 
I have felt neither fear 
nor resentment. 
I commit my life to fate 
without special wish to live 
or desire to die. 
Like a drifting cloud 
I rely on anyone 
and have no attachments. 
My only luxury 
is a sound sleep 
and all I look forward to, 
is the beauty 
of the changing seasons."
(Kamo no Chomei)

Society is like a stew.

If you don't stir it up
every once in a while 

then a layer of scum
floats to the top.

Breath is the bridge

which connects life
to consciousness,
which unites your body
to your thoughts.

(Thích Nhất Hạnh)

In a world where death

is the hunter, my friend,
there is no time
for regrets or doubts.
There is only time
for decisions.

"This is my least favorite life

The one where you fly and I don’t
A kiss holds a million deceits
And a lifetime goes up in smoke
This is my least favorite you
Who floats far above earth and stone
The nights that I twist on the rack
Is the time that I feel most at home


We're wandering in the shade
And the rustle of fallen leaves
A bird on the edge of a blade
Lost now forever, my love, in a sweet memory


The station pulls away from the train
The blue pulls away from the sky
The whisper of two broken wings
May be they’re yours, maybe they’re mine


This is my least favorite life
The one where I am out of my mind
The one where you are just out of reach
The one where I stay and you fly



I'm wandering in the shade
And the rustle of fallen leaves
A bird on the edge of the blade
Lost now forever, my love, in a sweet memory"
