anticipatory musings…

“We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.”
— Anais Ninnprfreshair:

"To be transformed
to turn yourself inside out like a glove
to spin like a planet
to thread yourself through yourself
so that each day penetrates each night
so that each word runs on the other side of truth
so that each verse comes out of itself
and gives off its own light
so that each face leaning on a hand
sweats into the skin of the palm

So that this pen
changes into pure silence
I wanted to say in love”

— Anna Kamieńska, from “Transformation”, in Astonishments

"I feel too much. That’s what’s going on. Do you think one can feel too much? Or just feel in the wrong ways? My insides don’t match up with my outsides. Do anyone’s insides and outsides match up? I don’t know. I’m only me. Maybe that’s what a person’s personality is: the difference between the inside and outside. But it’s worse for me. I wonder if everyone thinks it’s worse for him. Probably. But it really is worse for me."

breakfast! (by hokipoki)

Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever. Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, which was taught in immense milky way soft cloud innumerable worlds long ago and not even at all. It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity. It is perfect. We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea. That which passes into everything is one thing. It’s a dream already ended.

In my low periods, I wondered what was the point of creating art. For whom? Are we animating God? Are we talking to ourselves? And what was the ultimate goal? To have one’s work caged in art’s great zoos—the Modern, the Met, the Louvre?

I craved honesty, yet found dishonesty in myself. Why commit to art? For self-realization, or for itself? It seemed indulgent to add to the glut unless one offered illumination.

Often I’d sit and try to write or draw, but all of the manic activity in the streets, coupled with the Vietnam War, made my efforts seem meaningless. I could not identify with political movements. In trying to join them I felt overwhelmed by yet another form of bureaucracy. I wondered if anything I did mattered.

what has become of those simple loves that came to me once, so naturally

People are strange: They are constantly angered by trivial things, but on a major matter like totally wasting their lives, they hardly seem to notice.

-Charles Bukowski

Walker Evans

The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes “Awww!” Too fast to live, too young to die. Like a really pretty girl smoking a cigarette, and her makeup is smeared and her stockings are torn but she’s still a total babe. That’s why I stay up pretty late, go to a lot of concerts. Because I just want to live, surround myself with the living. Crackle crackle crackle. All I see is fireworks. Cause baby, you’re a firework.

So so so pretty.

You used to read dictionaries like other people read novels. Each entry is a character, you’d say, who might be encountered on some other page. Plots, many of them, would form during any random reading. The story changes according to the order in which the entries are read. A dictionary resembles the world more than a novel does, because the world is not a coherent sequence of actions but a constellation of things perceived… . To portray your life in order would be absurd: I remember you at random. My brain resurrects you through stochastic details, like picking marbles out of a bag.

Édouard Levé (tr. Jan Steyn), SuicideThanks3IMG 8322 Destination: Joshua Tree

You are tired,
(I think)
Of the always puzzle of living and doing;
And so am I.

Come with me, then,
And we’ll leave it far and far away—
(Only you and I, understand!)

You have played,
(I think)
And broke the toys you were fondest of,
And are a little tired now;
Tired of things that break, and—
Just tired.
So am I.

But I come with a dream in my eyes tonight,
And I knock with a rose at the hopeless gate of your heart—
Open to me!
For I will show you places Nobody knows,
And, if you like,
The perfect places of Sleep.

Ah, come with me!
I’ll blow you that wonderful bubble, the moon,
That floats forever and a day;
I’ll sing you the jacinth song
Of the probable stars;
I will attempt the unstartled steppes of dream,
Until I find the Only Flower,
Which shall keep (I think) your little heart
While the moon comes out of the sea.

- e.e. cummings

here I am again
trying to relearn how to breathe
and how easy it sinks
and slips away from me

what has become
of those simple loves
that came to me once, so naturally

sitting in my box
I am reading alive
disconnecting dots
that I twisted in my eyes

what has become
of those simple loves
that came to me once, so naturally

All happiness that is dependent on others 
is bound to disappear sooner or later.
It is temporary, it is momentary, it is illusory. 
Only that joy is yours which wells up 
within your own being.
Hence Buddha says: 
delight in meditation
delight in solitude

Aloneness is the joy of being just yourself. 
It is being joyous with yourself, 
it is enjoying your own company.

There are very few people 
who enjoy their own company. 
And it is a very strange world: 
nobody enjoys his company 
and everybody wants others to enjoy his company.

bless my mind, I miss being told how to live

I watch Elf too much.(by sinister kid)(by ▲themagicposition)This movie is my life. New Years Eve hold someone tight at the stroke of midnight. 

Choose Life over the other stuff. Get out of your head. Live. Dress up. Eat. Touch people. Help out. Give up. Love people. Give your best away. There’s more. What’s the problem? Relax. You’re going to die. Throw a party. Eat off my plate. Sing to me. Meet me in the bedroom. Get a massage. Give one. Let your amazement out into the room. Pry open the box you hide your joy in. Be a poem.

-John Patrick Shanleylost my heart in the stars on We Heart It. http://weheartit.com/entry/20086394cl4vicles:  my son by Theo Gosselin on Flickr.shesinacoma:  I was hysterical. That was the trouble. I was jealous of anyone she had anything to do with. I demanded absolute trust from her, because I wasnt trustworthy myself. I was neurotic, taking all my frustrations out on her. She did leave me once. That was terrible. I couldnt stand being without her. - John Lennon on his relationship with CynthiaSomething sad keeps moving

So I wandered around.
I fell in love with the burden
Holding me down.

Bless my mind, I miss
Being told how to live.
What I learned without knowing
How much more I owe than I can give.

This is how I tell it
Oh, but it’s long.

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness.

And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

…wow, listening to the new Wilco album was like listening to in rainbows for the first time. i finally get it. brilliant.

My cold Marigolds attack
My back, a bed of roses
I’m gonna bring my back
With hypnosis

And I know that I won’t be
The easiest to set free
And I know that I won’t been the last
Cold captain tied to the mast

I recall on the telephone
I recall when you get mad
I still love you to death
I won’t ever forget how

And I know that I won’t be
The easiest to set free
And I know that I won’t been the last
Cold captain tied to the mast

I’m on the other side
I’m satisfied
Oh, I’m a spirit dove
I’m looking for your love

I’m simple as a matter of fact
Punch in the nose, don’t over-react
But I’ll still love you to death
And I won’t ever forget how

And I know that I won’t be
The easiest to set free
And I know that I won’t been the last
Cold captain tied to the mast

And I know that I won’t be the one
To secure that I know when it’s wrong
But I hope when I know it’s passed
And I hope I’ll know when to show you my

Whole love 

Never forget how
