Some hearts just get lucky sometimes.

All this beauty;
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
All this beauty;
We traveled all night
We drank the ocean dry
And watched the sun rise…

You can ask about it
But nobody knows the way
No bread-crumb trail
To follow through your days
It takes an axe sometimes
A feather in the sunshine
And bad weather
It’s a matter of getting deeper in
Anyway you can

All this beauty;
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
All this beauty;
We traveled all night
We drank the ocean dry
And watched the sun rise…

I can see you’re new, awake
Let me assure you, friend
Every day is ice cream and chocolate cake
And what you make of it
Let me just say
You get what you take
From it, so be amazed
Whenever you stop…
You gotta be brave

All this beauty;
You might have to close your eyes
And slowly open wide
And watch the sun rise

-The Weepies

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.”
– Rainer Maria Rilke

Actually I was looking at the porcupine cartoon. I was going to do another post on Toulouse-Lautrec, but this will do for now. Simple, but it means a lot to me, at least about the idea of love, which I don’t pretend to know a thing about.


Henri Toulouse-Lautrec’s The Kiss

Hey, my love, you came to me like
Wine comes to this mouth;

Grown tired of water all the time;
You quench my heart and you
quench my mind
(Dave Matthews Band)


So who’s to worry
If our hearts get torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Don’t you know this life goes on
And won’t you kiss me
On that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing ain’t this life so sweet

This year’s love had better last
This year’s love had better last
(David Gray)

— Anna Quindlen, Object Lessons

“People seldom do what they believe in. They do what is convenient, then repent.”
— Bob Dylan

promise yourself… October 6, 2007

Turn on my heels/ step out of sight/ Try to live in a lovelier light
(Fiona Apple; Not About Love)


“Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”

Every day could be our last.
Today, instead of hating with all your heart,
Love with all you’re worth.
Instead of weeping until you can no more,
Laugh until you hurt.
Instead of being silent and unheard,
Sing the melody of a songbird.
And instead of taking all that you want,
Give all that you can.

Give your life story some exclamation points.
Give your life story some exclamation points!

We never said our love was evergreen or as unchanging as the sea
But if you can still remember, stop and think of me
(Phantom of the Opera)

You know love is everything you say
A whisper, a word, promises you give
You feel it in the heartbeat of the day
You know this is the way love is
(Enya, Amarantine)

Everything happens for a reason.
Even if it means not getting what you want.
Because in the end you realize…
It’s exactly what you needed.
