“The most regretful people on earth are those who felt the call to creative work, who felt their own creative power restive and uprising, and gave to it neither power nor time.”
To write to your heart’s content….paint till you drop…play music obsessively…whichever you even have the tiniest spark to do, just start. We can surprise ourselves and find out things about ourselves we never realized we could do, just because we started! – JQ
“You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves. […]

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting-
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.”
“…we should be careful
Of each other, we should be kind
While there is still time.”
Philip Larkin from “The Mower”

The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer. -Ken Kesey

“An invisible red thread connects those destined to meet, despite the time, the place, and despite the circumstances. The thread can be tightened or tangle, but will never be broken.”

Because there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it is sent away.

I tried doing them by hand, but I find it easier to use a screen. This way I don’t have to work on my objects at all. One of my assistants, or anyone else for that matter, can reproduce the design as well as I could. – Andy Warhol
Physicist Richard Feynman Uncredited and Undated Photograph
Some people say, ‘How can you live without knowing?’ I do not know what they mean. I always live without knowing. That is easy. How you get to know is what I want to know. Richard Feynman, “The Meaning of It All,” posthumously published, 1999
