Want the change. Be inspired by the flame
Where everything shines as it disappears.
The artist, when sketching, loves nothing so much
as the curve of the body as it turns away

What locks itself in sameness has congealed.
Is it safer to be gray and numb?
What turns hard becomes rigid
and is easily shattered.

Pour yourself like a fountain.
Flow into the knowledge that what you are seeking
finishes often at the start, and, with ending, begins.

Every happiness is the child of a separation
it did not think it could survive. And Daphne,
becoming a laurel,
dares you to become the wind.

Sonnets to Orpheus, Part Two , XII Rainer Maria Rilke
Translated by Anita Barrows and Joanna Macy

"i wonder, do we pretend to be who we are? have we been pretending for so long that when we realise maybe we are not who we actually think we are, we cannot find our way back to who we used to be? if i am pretending, i shall keep pretending, for i find the imaginary self i speak of more interesting than the self i once was five years ago. or should i call it the pretend self? an image of what i once was? i do not know."

I live life in my own way. Sometimes it's a happy way, sometimes it's a dark way. I find that the many roads that I walk in life are places that I can find inspiration, even if there may be nothing there. So, either way, I'm just living.
