Jack. The man.

“…they danced down the street like dingledodies and I shambled after as usual as I’ve been doing all my life after people that interest me, because the only people that interest me are the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones that never yawn or say a commonplace thing… but burn, burn, burn like roman candles across the night.”

~Jack Kerouac, ON THE ROAD: The Original Scroll

let this knowledge settle into your bones…

One of my best friends in the all the world sent this to me this morning and it was perfect. Thought I would share and I hope it’s perfect for one or two of you good people:

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you well, pray for the ones who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

Today may there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

Caitlin Fitzgerald gets real

“So who is the real Caitlin FitzGerald? Imagine the Hollywood starlet obsessed with self-image and Twitter followers and partying. Now imagine the exact opposite: a humble, down-to-earth, and hard-working woman. That’s her.” – From an article I did on Caitlin Fitzgerald for LadyGunn Magazine.

“I have always been fascinated by the poetic condition of twilight. By its transformative quality. Its power of turning the ordinary into something magical and otherworldly.” ~Gregory Crewdson

You complain…

…about not having any real friends.

Make them.

BE one.

She is small and beautiful and will grow up here as I have, every day praying some Northern wind will take her nine miles to the end of the lake, and she will settle for some Eastern gusts to blow her around in triangle shapes, side to side to side, until she comes home and thinks: what a thing it is to be in water. What a thing it is to breathe underneath. We are so lucky to spend our days in the quiet.
